Winchester’s New Blind Side Shotshells

    Winchester BlindSide

    For 2013, Winchester Ammunition pumped up the speed of their Blind Side steel shot shells. The faster ammo uses a higher packing density for an increased powder charge that results in a velocity of 1675 fps with the company’s steel HEX shot out of both 3″ and 3 1/2″ 12 gauge shell with 1 1/8 ounces of shot.

    Previously, the Blind Side ammunition made for 1400 fps out of a 12 gauge using 2 3/4″, 3″ and 3 1/2″ shells. ┬áThe new velocities represent an increase of almost 300 fps.

    Originally introduced in 2011, the Blind Side shotshells use a specially shaped steel shot that allows Winchester to pack more shot into each shell. With the new velocities, hunters can be assured of even faster kills.
