WINCHESTER EXPANDS POWER MAX BONDED LINE-UP

www.winchester.com

The Winchester® Ammunition Power Max Bonded® line, designed specifically for the whitetail deer hunter, continues the tradition of legendary excellence by offering hunters more calibers to choose from in 223 Rem., 325 WSM and 338 Win Mag.

Power Max Bonded ammunition is a jacketed bullet with a proprietary bonding process that delivers massive expansion long-range accuracy, and maximum knock-down power.

The bonding process welds lead to a copper alloy jacket where the two act together during expansion for improved penetration and retained weight.

“Power Max Bonded ammunition has proven to be lethal on whitetails all over North America, as well as other big game animals since we launched the product in 2009,” said Brett Flaugher, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition.  “For any whitetail hunter who is interested in bullet construction, accuracy and penetration, Power Max Bonded is it.”

Key features of the Power Max Bonded bullet include:

  • Protected hollow point PHP design
  • Lead core bonded to jacket with proprietary process
  • Massive frontal area of bullet expansion is more than double original diameter
  • Lead remains bonded to jacket after impact

Power Max Bonded will be offered in the following calibers and bullet weights:
