A new development for 2018 from Winchester Ammunition, the Deer Season line of 12-gauge, 2.¾" shotshells are coming to the market this Fall – just in time for the next hunting season!
Shotgun slug technology has certainly advanced over time, and Winchester Ammunition is at the forefront of product innovation.
The Deer Season slug benefits from those technological advancements and is an ideal option for deer hunters throughout North America.
New for 2018, the Winchester Deer Season Slug looks similar to a traditional Foster-style slug, but is unique in that it is paired with a rear stabilizer that is inserted into the heel of the projectile. The slug and stabilizer travel as one downrange, resulting in accuracy that deer hunters need in the field.
Matt Campbell, vice president of marketing and sales for Winchester Ammunition, said: «The new Deer Season slug will be a great addition to our slug-hunting cartridge options, particularly for those looking for excellent performance at an exceptional value.»
This shotshell is designed to be used in smooth bore, rifled choke tube or fully rifled barrels to make ammunition selection easier than ever for deer hunters.
Additionally, the large diameter impact tip of the slug will provide rapid energy transfer on deer.
Winchester's Deer Season slugs will be sold at a retail price of $6/$7 per five-rounds box in the United States of America.
