This line of Winchester ammunition consists of 100% enclosed bullets to minimize a shooter's exposure to lead in an enclosed environment. Additionally, the primer is made of a special non-toxic product to reduce danger of inhalation poisoning in poorly ventilated areas.
A "BEB" bullet is essentially a full metal jacket bullet with the addition of the complete enclosure of the base of the bullet where a typical full metal jacket bullet allows for some lead exposure.
Winchester began offering its quality product in 1873 and has been providing the citizens and military of the United States with the same standard of quality ever since.
Video Transcript:Winchester ammunition has been around since 1873 and remains as one of the most popular brands of target ammo seen at ranges all over the country. In this review, we tested Winchester's WinClean ammo in a 40 Smith and Wesson. The 180-grain bullet features a lead core with a metal jacket, but unlike most full metal jacket ammo, the WinClean bullet is what Winchester calls a brass enclosed base, or BEB.
The base of the bullet is completely enclosed in the jacket, while the tip of the bullet is exposed lead. This supposedly minimizes the shooters exposure to lead, which could be an issue for those who use indoor ranges. The primer is also different most other ammo. It has no lead or other toxic substances in it for the shooter to breathe in.
WinClean ammo, like most other Winchester ammo, uses a brass case suitable for reloading. Performance of the WinClean ammo was on par with what we've come to expect from Winchester target ammo. It has good reliability and functioned well in all of our test guns. Accuracy from the bench at 15 yards were decent using a SIG P226. WinClean ammo is a great choice for the range for anyone who might be concerned about keeping a clean range environment with a minimum of potentially harmful airborne substances.
