The Winchester Repeating Arms Company was founded by Oliver Winchester in 1866 with the design of the Winchester Model 66. Eight years later, operations were expanded to include ammunition production. In the nearly 150 years since, Winchester has successfully sustained its legacy of American tradition, building a name that has become synonymous with qualities that exist in only the finest of businesses. Their commitment to excellence, outstanding pride in their product and innovative spirit has cemented their place at the head of the arms and ammunition industries.
For many, Winchester means fine weaponry. For most, it means ammunition. As a major global supplier of high-quality ammunition, Winchester has long held a reputation for its second-to-none research and development practices as well as their aforementioned innovative spirit, which has yielded some of the world's most popular firearms cartridges. It is also responsible for their inventive lines of ammunition, including the unmatched "Super-X" line of buckshot.
As noted, Winchester XB1200VP Super-X buckshot is a product from Winchester's "Super-X" line. Marketed as a stalwart load intended for a range of applications, all Winchester Super-X buckshot features time-tested technologies that deliver on all fronts. This state-of-the-art load, like all Winchester ammunition, is manufactured in the United States by the Olin Corporation at the Winchester Centerfire Operations Facility in Oxford, Mississippi. Additionally, all ammunition lots are inspected for quality assurance purposes prior to packaging.
That said each box of Winchester XB1200VP Super-X buckshot, as noted, contains 15 premium shotshells. Each 12-gauge shotshell measures 2 3/4 inches in length and contains nine pellets of double-aught (00) buckshot, which is an ideal load for both deer hunting and personal defense. Additionally, this particular load is capable of producing muzzle velocities that have been observed to travel at speeds of up to 1,325 fps.
