Winchester Ammunition Introduces Copper Impact Ammunition

EAST ALTON, IL – Winchester launches its Copper Impact® rifle and shotshell ammunition line in 2022, now offering even more popular calibers and heavy-hitting bullet weights for big-game hunting.

Copper Impact rifle bullets are engineered with longer ogives and boattails providing higher ballistic coefficients, which increases accuracy at longer distances. With Copper Impact, a hunter gets monolithic solid copper Extreme Point® hollow-point bullets with distinctive polymer tips that create both a large-impact diameter and immediate expansion upon contact.

As a solid bullet, the Extreme Point® produces greater weight retention over standard jacketed bullets. Copper Impact bullets are permitted for use where lead-free ammunition is required, but regardless of location, this line of ammunition performs on big game from pronghorn to elk.

Copper Impact Rifle Ammunition Features:

  • Large-impact-diameter Copper Extreme Point® expands immediately upon contact to deliver massive knockdown power
  • Solid copper bullet design offers improved weight retention over standard jacketed lead-core bullets
  • New 30 caliber, 180-grain loads for big game

Copper Impact rifle bullet offerings are expansive with more than a dozen options, from 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.8 Western and 300 Win. Mag., to shotgun slugs in both 12 and 20 gauge.
