Everyone wants the best terminal ballistics on their hunting rounds. Deer Season XP, Copper Impact’s solid copper bullet combines Winchester’s extensive experience into a product engineered specifically for deer hunters. The Extreme Point, copper-solid bullet features an oversized impact diameter. The larger impact diameter means more impact trauma, better energy transfer and larger wound cavities for faster knockdown.
The solid-copper bullet design offers improved weight retention for deeper penetration and a red, reinforced polymer tip for product differentiation from standard Deer Season XP loads. Additional features of this bullet include a streamlined ballistic profile and boattail for flat trajectory, a hollow nose cavity for lethal, terminal performance and a solid-copper construction for maximum retained weight and energy transfer.
Deer Season XP® Copper Impact™ rifle ammunition provides devastating terminal performance on deer with increased weight retention and deeper penetration. It will be available in 20-round boxes and can be used in areas that require lead-free ammunition.
