Winchester Nwtf Commemorative Ammo

As a tribute to one of the most prolific conservation organizations of all time, Winchester has announced its National Wild Turkey Federation 50th Anniversary commemorative Long Beard XR turkey ammunition.

The packaging on the limited-edition ammunition calls attention to and promotes the NWTF’s 50 years of delivery on its mission to conserve the wild turkey, and preserve our nation’s hunting heritage. The commemorative ammo is available in 12 gauge, 3-inch, No. 5 shot and features NWTF, Winchester and Mossy Oak Original Bottomland camouflage on the packaging, making this truly a collectible.

“The Winchester commitment to conservation spans more than 150 years, and as the NWTF’s first million-dollar sponsor, we congratulate their leadership and membership on this milestone anniversary,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing. “The NWTF has reached millions of people through its conservation, hunting and shooting sports programs, and we’re very honored to help support the organization’s continued efforts.”

Long Beard XR turkey ammunition utilizes the patented SHOT-LOK resin, which fully encapsulates and buffers the shot within the shell to prevent pellet deformation upon firing. The copper-plated lead shot is kept perfectly round to dramatically improve patterns down range with more hits on target and increased energy at extended distances. Long Beard XR was introduced in 2014 and quickly became one of the most innovative and superior turkey loads, setting records at the NWTF Still Target competition, as well as being recognized as ‘ammunition of the year’ by several industry organizations.
