An effective choice for both close-range hunting and countryside home defense, this 12 gauge ammo from Winchester is military surplus that performs with the utmost reliability. These 2-3/4" shells come in a bulk priced case of 250 and feature distinctive anodized brass and green hulls. As usual with mil-spec ammo, these rounds come in plain but easy to handle packaging.
Each shell in this case fires 9 pellets of 00 buckshot at a muzzle velocity of 1,325 feet per second. This is a relatively powerful and hard-kicking load comparable in ballistics to civilian hunting ammo; it boasts excellent effective range but should only be used for defense in areas where overpenetration is not a major concern. The shot pellets are packed in with GREX buffering media which decreases deformation, shrinks pattern size, and increases penetrating depth.
Winchester is one of the top names in the ammunition manufacturing industry. Since 2011, Winchester ammo has been made in Oxford, Mississippi; however, the company's roots date back to the mid 19th century.
