NRA Chooses Winchester’s PDX1 Line As Ammunition Product Of The Year
Morgan, UT –-(AmmoLand.com)- Winchester® Ammunition’s Supreme Elite® Bonded PDX1™ has been selected to receive the NRA’s 2010 Golden Bullseye Award for “Ammunition Product of the Year” by Shooting Illustrated magazine.
“We are truly honored to be receiving this award from the NRA,” said Dick Hammett, president of Winchester Ammunition. “It means a great deal to us for our ammunition to be recognized as an award winning product from such an outstanding organization. The PDX1 is the best of the best when it comes to personal protection ammunition, and this award from the NRA continues to prove it.”
“The Golden Bullseye Award honors our winners for bringing to market products remarkable in their utility to shooters and hunters,” said Joe H. Graham, executive director of NRA Publications. “The award is a symbol of excellence and innovation in firearms, accessories and related equipment. We congratulate the winners, and we are confident shooters and hunters will receive this year’s winning products with enthusiasm.”
The Bonded PDX1 line uses the same technology the Federal Bureau of Investigation uses as its primary service round. The Bonded PDX1 is engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, as defined by the demanding FBI test protocol, which simulates real-world threats.
All of the Bonded PDX1 elements working together as one system, help ensure consistent expansion and is capable of penetrating a wide range of barriers ranging from clothing to drywall, to plywood, and auto glass.
