These shells use copper plated shot for better patterning. In comparison to bare lead shot, copper-plated pellets resist deformation and retain their spherical shape better when the shell is fired. This helps them stay on target and reduces the chance of "flyers" straying wildly outside the pattern.
This ammunition produces significant recoil and is not designed for home defense, where multiple follow-up shots might be needed.
Winchester shotshells are loaded in Oxford, Mississippi at a state of the art facility built in 2011. Winchester itself has been around since the 19th century and enjoys a strong reputation for the high quality of its ammunition.
