While these statistics are solid on their own, it is Winchester's Shot-Lok technology that really sets this ammo apart from the competition. Each shell is filled with resin that eliminates all the air pockets around the shot to keep pellet deformation down. When the shell is fired, the resin shatters into an instant, highly effective buffer that protects the shot and keeps patterns nice and tight. As a result, these shells have better penetration and an effective range of over 60 yards.
Long Beard XR ammunition, like other Winchester ammo, is made in Oxford, Mississippi. Winchester's facility there opened in 2011 and uses state of the art technology to produce high quality ammo in a cost-efficient way that keeps prices to a reasonable level.
