Winchester Xpert Steel, New For Targets Or Upland Game In 2008

6/17/08

Whether you are busting clay targets or hunting dove, Winchester® Ammunition recognizes the need for an affordable, non-toxic alternative to lead. In 2008, four new loads are being added to the Xpert® Game and Target Steel Shot line.

The new Winchester Xpert loads include a one ounce 12-gauge load and a one ounce 20-gauge load. Both are 2-3/4 inches and achieve a muzzle velocity of 1,325 feet per second (fps).

Xpert Steel Shot loads are ideal for use in states with non-toxic shot upland game regulations and are a great alternative to lead throughout the country at an excellent value. Xpert Steel Shot loads have a higher velocity and more pellets per ounce than equivalent weight lead loads.

This economically priced steel load is a high quality product that provides excellent patterning for upland game and clay targets. It is available in 25-round cartons with eye-catching graphics.

The new 12-gauge Xpert Steel Shot features:
- Muzzle velocity of 1,325 fps
- One ounce load in both #6 and #7 steel shot
- 2 3/4 inches
- Symbol: WE12GT

The new 20-gauge Xpert Steel Shot features:
- Muzzle velocity of 1,325 fps
- 3/4 ounce load in both #6 and #7 steel shot
- 2 3/4 inches
- Symbol: WE20GT

I talked to some of the Sporting Clays guys and they absolutely HATE steel loads. I have to tell you that they would be my LAST choice for skeet or trap; in skeet's case too tight a pattern and in trap's case too little energy to shoot handicap yardages.

And what about those people who want to shoot the best upland bird gauge of all, the 28 gauge? Might as well hang it on the wall. And forget about the .410!

Of course, the other alternative is Hevi-shot at $2.50 per shot. Yeah, I can see myself doing that on doves.
