At 2013 IWA in Norimberga, Winchester presents at the european market the new Blind Side ammunitions, that combine ground-breaking stacked Hex Steel Shot technology and the new diamond cut wad. With a loaded 100% Hex Shot, the Winchester Blind Side ammunitions create a larger kill zone and more trauma inducing pellets than ever before, meaning more fast kills. Tightly packed and stacked Hex Shot, the Winchester Blind Side gives 15% more shot pellets per shell, increasing your kill zone by 25%: this means 25% more bird-blistering trauma with Blind Side ammunition. The Hex Shot hits waterfowl like high-velocity tumbling bricks, delivering massive wound channels that maximize energy deposit and knockdown shock within the bird. Hex Shot means more payload in a smaller space. The innovative, choke responsive Diamond Cut Wad delivers tight, consistent patterns at higher velocities. The re-engineered Drylok Super Steel system, with “hinged wad” keeps your powder dry and increases velocity.
