Steel shot is a must-have for waterfowl hunting trips due to lead contamination concerns in sensitive aquatic habitats. Although steel shot has long been considered ballistically inferior to lead shot, newer technologies such as improved propellants and wads have helped close the gap and give fowl hunters a leg up on their prey. This ammo features Winchester 209 primers and one piece hinged wads, which cut down on recoil and improve patterns.
Winchester has been a favorite ammo brand of hunters, law enforcement officers, and citizens concerned with self-defense since the 19th century. They produce one of the world's largest selections of ammunition at a state of the art facility in Oxford, Mississippi. While usually not the absolute cheapest ammo available, Winchester cartridges and shotshells deliver rock-solid quality at a cost-effective price!
