BISMUTH: LEAD PERFORMANCE... WITHOUT THE LEAD New for 2019, Winchester® launches its Xtended Range with Bismuth shot and Shot-Lok® technology shotshells. The density of Bismuth is moderate and traditionally outperforms steel shot. Shot-Lok® Technology, paired with Bismuth, protects the shot against setback forces so that they maintain perfect roundness and improved performance downrange.
This is the ideal cartridge for wetland hunters who only get one shot at their quarry.The density of the Bismuth delivers near-lead penetration. The cartridge uses Shot-Lok® technology to protect the Bismuth shot against damage, improving pattern density and energy compared to lead loads.
The Xtended Range Bismuth cartridge places twice as many impacts within a 50 cm circle from 50 metres than an equivalent lead load.
