Features of PDX1 Defender 223 Centerfire Rifle:
Given the recent popularity of modern sporting rifles (MSR) among shooters and hunters, Winchester has designed a product using Split Core Technology (SCT) for personal defense. The SCT technology, using a quick expansion front lead core and a deep driving bonded rear lead core, creates the ultimate 223 Rem Personal Defense load.

The PDX1® Defender™ 223 bullet weighs 60 grains with a velocity of 2750 feet per second.

Highly effective in both .410 compatible handguns and shotguns, the .410 PDX1 ammunition features a distinctive black hull and black oxide high-base head and combines four plated Defense Disc™ projectiles and 16 pellets of plated BB shot. The result is the ideal personal defense load for short range engagement with the performance needed to reduce aim error and stop threats. Designed for use in the Taurus Judge®, PDX1® .410 provides maximum protection at close range.

  • .410-gauge 3-inch load
  • 4 Defense Disc™ projectiles with 16 Plated BBs

WINCHESTER AMMUNITION INTRODUCES NEW RANGER BONDED .38 SPECIAL +P

www.winchester.com

WINCHESTER AMMUNITION INTRODUCES NEW RANGER BONDED .38 SPECIAL +P
Winchester® Ammunition’s new Ranger® Bonded .38 Special +P round offers a great, new option for all law enforcement officers carrying .38 Special snub nose revolvers.

The new round is a 130 gr. bonded hollow point and uses the same technology the Federal Bureau of Investigation uses as its primary service round. The Ranger® Bonded line is engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, as defined by the demanding FBI test protocol, which simulates real-world threats.

“The new Ranger® Bonded ammunition is capable of penetrating a wide range of barriers from clothing to plywood and still effectively stops a threat,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition’s vice president of sales and marketing.

The proprietary bonding process welds the lead and jacket together to work as one unit, controlling expansion and providing superior retained weight upon impact. By bonding the lead to the jacket, it ensures maximum stopping power.

In addition, this same bonding process is used on the 9mm and 40 S&W ammunition selected by the FBI for use as their duty ammunition.

The bullet offers a six segment jacket design for a consistent and programmed expansion at a variety of impact velocities, including the lower velocities associated with snub nose revolvers, to maximize expanded diameter.

This product is only available to law enforcement divisions through our nationwide network of Winchester Ammunition Law Enforcement Distributors.

For more information about the new Ranger® Bonded .38 Special +P and all of Winchester Ammunition’s products visit www.winchester.com or contact Paul Nowak pfnowak@olin.com.

Extreme Shock Creates New Brand of Ammo

Extreme Shock Creates New Brand of AmmoCLINTWOOD, VA – Extreme Shock Ammunition has announced that it will be producing its own line of high quality copper plated, lead core ammunition under the brand name “Allegiance Ammunition.”

This new line of ammunition comes in response to the demand for affordable, high quality ammunition and a shortage of components in the market. Each Allegiance round will undergo the same strict quality control procedures as the Extreme Shock tactical line. The 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .223 and .308 will have the case mouth and primer sealed, or waterproofed to US mil spec standard. This procedure will give the Allegiance brand of ammunition an estimated 20-year shelf life.

Allegiance is economically priced for target shooting, yet performance enhanced for self-defense situations. Though the .380 ACP is the first caliber available, a 9mm will be available in late October, 2010, with .40S&W, .45ACP, .223 and .308 following soon after. Ask your dealer for the most high quality, performance-driven, target ammo in the world–Allegiance!

MSRP for a 50-round box of Allegiance .380 ACP is $23.66. To learn more about Allegiance Ammunition, call (276) 926-6827.
