East Alton, IL – -(Ammoland.com)- Forty yards has long been the standard by which all turkey loads were measured … No more. It’s time to go farther with Winchester Long Beard XR.

Winchester Ammunition introduces the most innovative lead turkey load in its history, the new Long Beard XR, which provides increased lethality at longer ranges, more than any other turkey load.

Featuring new-to-the-world Shot-Lok Technology, Long Beard XR offers the tightest patterns and longest shot capability of any lead turkey load in history—with twice the pellets in a 10” circle out to 60 yards compared to traditional lead loads. Long Beard XR has the knockdown power of popular heavier-than-lead loads at a fraction of the cost, meaning it’s a turkey-slamming game changer for hunters looking to push the limits.

Winchester Long Beard XR will be offered in the following specifications:

Gauge Shell Length Oz. Shot Velocity Shot Sizes Rds/Box

  • 12 3 1/2” 2 1200 4, 5, 6 10
  • 12 3” 1 3/4 1200 4, 5, 6 10

SHOT-LOK TECHNOLOGY—
When turkey hunting, it’s important to identify your target and attempt to call in a bird within 40 yards or less. However, it is sometimes difficult to measure the exact distance, so every hunter wants a load they can depend on to reach the turkey at a respected distance beyond 40 yards. Long Beard XR includes Shot-Lok Technology—a hardened resin that completely encapsulates the lead pellets. Shot-Lok actually eliminates air space around the pellets, preventing movement, which ultimately leads to virtually no pellet deformation.

As the shot is charged, the resin fractures, forming a micro-buffer as the shot pattern leaves the gun barrel—the pellets remain round and fly straighter and tighter resulting in highly consistent payloads and devastating knockdown at longer ranges.

Advantages of Shot-Lok Technology—

  • · Protects shot during in-bore acceleration
  • · Shot launches from barrel near perfectly round for extremely tight long-range patterns
  • · Twice the number of pellets in a 10” circle out to 60 yards
  • · 10% greater penetration over standard lead loads beyond 50 yards
  • · Devastating terminal on-target performances

“Long Beard XR is the most innovative turkey load ever developed in the history of Winchester, and our engineers continue to raise the bar every year with new products across many categories,” said Brett Flaugher, vice president of sales, marketing and strategy for Winchester Ammunition. “We are very excited to get this product in the hands of the millions of turkey hunters across North America … they will immediately recognize a difference in performance.”
