The Winchester® Ammunition Ballistic Silvertip® lead-free bullet recently received the “Best of the Best” Award from Field & Stream magazine. The truly innovative lead-free load takes varmint hunting to a new level, using fragmenting copper core technology to incorporate a lead-free bullet in both .223 Rem. and .22-250 Rem. in the Ballistic Silvertip® line.

This technologically advanced bullet brought to you by Winchester® and Nosler® features a gilding metal jacket and a plastic tip to reduce tip damage and promote long-range performance. The fragmenting copper core is engineered to explode on impact.

“We are truly honored to receive the “Best of the Best” from Field & Stream,” said Dick Hammett, president of Winchester Ammunition. “We work hard to offer the most innovative ammunition and we feel the technology behind this bullet is evident on impact. It means a great deal to us for our ammunition and hard work to be recognized by such an outstanding publication.”

The Winchester Ballistic Silvertip lead-free product line will meet the increased customer demand in regions with lead-free regulations, as well as the growth of varmint hunting across all parts of North America.
