Winchester Adds Three New Calibers to Deer Season XP Lineup

New Calibers Added to Deer Season XP™ Lineup 


The number of hunters who pursue deer every season far exceeds the number of hunters for any other type of game. Last year, Winchester Ammunition stepped up to give these hunters a load built exclusively for the game they hunt. Deer Season XP was a huge hit as the deer-focused brand made ammunition selection simple and more affordable, while also delivering in-the-field performance. In 2016, Winchester is taking the line even further, adding three new calibers to the lineup.

Key features of Deer Season XP include:
  • Bigger Tip. Bigger Impact® – Radically new large-impact-diameter design expands immediately upon contact to deliver the energy needed for massive knockdown power
  • Accuracy – Deer Season XP flies straight thanks to the Extreme Point® polymer tip, tapered bullet jacket and precision swaged lead core
  • Price – Top shelf performance at a value price

“Due to the popularity of deer hunting and the number of deer hunters across the country, Deer Season XP was an instant hit in 2015,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing, sales and strategy. “The new caliber offerings were selected to serve a broader spectrum of today’s deer hunter.”
