With Winchester bowing out of the High Density market they put their research dollars to producing a better lead shotshell.. They claim it is the most research they have ever put into a shotshell.. When you truly look at this shell it truly is revolutionary if it works as advertised.. While they are promoting long range shooting which I strongly disagree with, if this shell produces denser patterns at 40 and in with relative ease at an affordable price its a step forward. Some of the Highlights 10% better penetration than traditional lead shotshells I am having a hard time grasping this.. We have plated lead available to us right now doing the exact velocity this shell is said to generate.. Do not know how it can defy physics. IMO Marketing hype Twice the pellets in a 10 inch circle out to 60 yards All subject to the comparison sample, but see pattern below.. 20 dollars for 10 shells With even lead turkey loads creeping up if it shows the properties listed above a good tradeoff between high dollar hevi shot and traditional lead shot shells.. New Shot Lok Liquid Resin This is the thing that is revolutionary... With modern technology no doubt traditional lead pellets can be made to pattern better.. This pattern is from the Outdoor Life article.. I took it and counted the pellets inside the 10 inch circle in Microsoft Paint.. Its hard to do with the stupid shoot and C target but I came up with 180.. If this is true that is a fantastic lead pattern.. If it can consistently do that with what they were shooting a Mossberg 835 with a 18 inch barrel it will be amazing to see what can be had when the masses get their hands on this load and shoot through a wide range of chokes and guns.. http://www.theoutdoorwire.com/story/1379663761f7u7xhap011 http://winchesterproductdemos.winchester.com/LongbeardXR.html#/Home http://www.huntingclub.com/blogs/articletype/articleview/articleid/15194/winchester-longbeard-xr-astounding-new-turkey-ammo http://www.outdoorlife.com/blogs/gun-shots/2013/09/winchester-longbeard-xr-new-turkey-load-designed-longer-ranges Wanna kill these ads?
