Shotgun slug technology has certainly advanced over time and Winchester Ammunition is at the forefront of product innovation. The Deer Season slug benefits from those technological advancements and is an ideal option for deer hunters throughout North America.
Deer Season ammunition combines Winchester’s extensive experience into a product engineered specifically for deer hunters. The Deer Season Slug looks similar to a traditional Foster-style slug, but is unique in that it is paired with a rear stabilizer that is inserted into the heel of the projectile.
The slug and stabilizer travel as one downrange, resulting in accuracy that deer hunters need in the field.
“The new Deer Season slug will be a great addition to our slug-hunting cartridge options, particularly for those looking for excellent performance at an exceptional value,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of marketing and sales for Winchester Ammunition.
In addition, this shotshell is designed to be used in smooth bore, rifled choke tube or fully rifled barrels to make ammunition selection easier than ever. Additionally, the large diameter impact tip of the slug will provide rapid energy transfer on deer.
• Designed for superior performance in all shotguns
• High velocity – carries greater energy downrange for more knockdown power
• Integrated Rear Stabilized Wad – travels downrange with the slug for improved accuracy
New for 2018, Winchester is offering its Deer Season slug in a 12-gauge, 2 3/4-inch load with a velocity of 1,600 fps. Deer Season Slug is packed five rounds to a box and will be available to hunters for as little as $7.
