East Alton, IL – -( Winchester Ammunition continues to pioneer innovation and expand its rimfire offerings in 2011 by adding the Varmint HE 3/1 Segmenting expansion bullet to its rimfire hunting lineup.

The unique 3/1 segment design exclusive to Winchester, features a 37 gr plated HP fragmenting expansion bullet that delivers a blistering 1435 fps velocity, optimized for maximum accuracy.

The programmed hollow-point fragments include three forward segments, plus a solid rear core designed to provide explosive impact energy plus penetration.

In addition, the Varmint HE consists of non-corrosive priming and clean burning powder to generate a sure fire ignition every time.

“Without a doubt, Varmint HE ammunition provides explosive impact,” said Brett Flaugher, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition.

“The 3/1 segmenting design makes this product truly innovative, but unlike other high energy bullets on the market, our new 3/1 fragmenting design allows initial impact shock, and deep penetration resulting in maximum terminal effect.”
