Winchester Ammunition is one of the top names in the ammo game. They manufacture a wide variety of cartridge and shotshell varieties from their plants based in Oxford, Mississippi and East Alton, Illinois. Last year they took over the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, and produce ammo for the US military as well as their commercial market offerings. From standard rifle cartridges and shotgun shells to rimfire offerings and handloading components, there isn’t much in the world of ammo that they haven’t touched. Now this noted American ammunition maker has announced a special new series, this time with a focus on supporting US military veterans. The new USA Valor series of ammunition has been introduced with the promise that a portion of the proceeds from each sale of this special-edition ammo will be donated to Folds of Honor.

USA VALOR SERIES
Celebrating U.S. Freedom. Supporting U.S. Veterans.
With the USA VALOR™ ammunition series, Winchester celebrates its commitment to American freedom with a limited-edition collection of military-inspired ammunition. Winchester is the largest small caliber enterprise in the world and remains steadfast in its support of the U.S. Warfighter and U.S. veteran. We’re proud to say that every purchase of Winchester USA VALOR ammunition helps support Folds of Honor.
A Proud Supporter of Folds of Honor
For over a century, Winchester has supported the American Warfighter. With the USA VALOR™ ammunition series, Winchester proudly continues that support with donations to Folds of Honor.
Of the 1 million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly 9 out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by providing annual educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while on active duty.
