Winchester Ammunition Expands Dual Bond Bullet Line
East Alton, IL – -(AmmoLand.com)- Considered one of the most innovative products in Winchester Ammunition history, the Supreme Elite Dual Bond bullet line is expanding in 2010, adding .44 Rem-Mag and .45-70 Gov’t to the big-bore hunting lineup.
The .44 Rem-Mag features a 240-grain bullet and the .45-70 Gov’t features a 375-grain bullet. The ‘bullet within a bullet’ design delivers dramatic stopping power and massive tissue damage and is suitable for whitetail deer to large dangerous game, such as bear.
“The Dual Bond bullet is technologically unsurpassed by any bullet commercially available today,” said Brett Flaugher, vice president of domestic and international marketing and sales for Winchester Ammunition. “Anyone who shoots this bullet will experience the best Winchester has to offer in our slug and big-bore hunting lineup.”
The outer jacket is designed for maximum upset and to open up into six segments. The inner jacket works with the bonded lead core and forms another six segments at a controlled rate resulting in a an expansion with 12 segments and is 1.5 times larger than the original bullet diameter.
The heavy outer jacket is mechanically bonded to the inner bullet. The inner bullet utilizes a proprietary bonding process, which welds the lead core to a second jacket that results in a design that provides for a combination of knockdown power, deep penetration and significant tissue damage while retaining nearly 100% of the original weight. The Supreme Elite® Dual Bond® has a large hollow point cavity, which provides positive expansion at a variety of ranges and impact velocities. Combined, this patent pending technology results in lethal energy transfer on impact.
