This line of Winchester ammunition is one of the most common in use today, prized for its affordability, performance, and history in the hands of the American sports-shooting enthusiast.
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:Affordable training ammo from Winchester comes in the form of the USA brand. But because of its distinctive plain white packaging, it's more commonly known as Winchester White Box. Winchester has been making ammo for American civilians and military since the 1870s. Their White Box line is a staple of the recreational shooting community and can be seen at just about every range in the country.
This time we shot a couple of boxes Winchester White Box in 40 Smith & Wesson with a 180 grain bullet. The lead-core full metal jacket bullet is seated in a re-loadable brass case with a non-corrosive primer. Unlike some other versions of this ammo we've reviewed, the rounds did not come loosely packed in a box or in a double-decker 100 round pack. This is the more typical 50 round box with a Styrofoam carrier to protect the ammo from damage.
True to its name, Winchester US ammo is made right here in the US. We used six different test guns with this ammo and it functioned flawlessly in all of them with no malfunctions or feeding problems. Recoil is relatively moderate for 40 caliber making this Winchester load a good plinking round.
Our ten-shot accuracy test was performed from a bench at 15 yards using a SIG P226. Even after a long day on the range, we were able to keep a decent sized group. Winchester White Box continues to be some of the most popular practice ammo around. The 180 grain 40 Smith & Wesson variety performed right on par with most of the other inexpensive practice loads on the market.
