Winchester® Ammunition’s Supreme Elite Bonded PDX1™ was recently awarded the 2010 Golden Bullseye Award for “Ammunition Product of the Year” by Shooting Illustrated magazine, one of the NRA’s premier publications.

“We are truly honored to be receiving this award from Shooting Illustrated,” said Dick Hammett, president of Winchester Ammunition. “It means a great deal to us for our ammunition to be recognized as an award winning product from such an outstanding publication. The PDX1 is the best of the best when it comes to personal protection ammunition, and our work with the FBI and this award continues to prove it.”

“The Golden Bullseye Award honors our winners for bringing to market products remarkable in their utility to shooters and hunters,” said Joe H. Graham, executive director of NRA Publications. “The award is a symbol of excellence and innovation in firearms, accessories and related equipment. We congratulate the winners, and we are confident shooters and hunters will receive this year’s winning products with enthusiasm.”

The Bonded PDX1 line uses the same technology the Federal Bureau of Investigation uses as its primary service round. The Bonded PDX1 is engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, as defined by the demanding FBI test protocol, which simulates real-world threats.

All of the Bonded PDX1 elements working together as one system, help ensure consistent expansion and is capable of penetrating a wide range of barriers ranging from clothing to drywall, to plywood, and auto glass.
