New for 2022: 3 Winchester Hunting Ammunition Options

Columnist Melissa Bachman personally tested each, and explains here what makes these new ammo options so special.

posted on February 4, 2022

Winchester Ammunition is leading the hunting pack in 2022 with its "Primed for '22" launch of a remarkable array of ammunition products. These aren't just simple line extensions with new calibers; these are true innovations that will increase your chances of a quick, clean kill in the field. NRA Women Columnist Melissa Bachman, who is also a member of Team Winchester, has personally spent the last year working with these brand-new offerings in rifle calibers and shotshells.

Starting with BlindSide 2, Winchester's devastating shotshell optimized for waterfowl hunting, you'll see for yourself what makes this load so effective. Additionally, there's a new offering, simply named Bismuth, that delivers superior downrange performance in a non-toxic load. Winchester hasn't forgotten upland wingshooters, either, as the company's Super Pheasant Diamond Grade shotshells prove. Rifle hunters, rejoice ... Winchester Ammunition's new 6.8 Western Power-Point and Copper Impact cartridges are here to bring down game quickly and ethically at ranges you won't believe.

Check out this video and get primed for '22!
