Twelve pellets of #4 Buck shot gives this Winchester 2 ¾” shell quite the punch – enough for large game (like deer – where applicable) and longer range effectiveness on predator game like coyote, etc. The quality and consistency of the Winchester Super-X line has rarely been debated, and constantly been proven over the years and the component selection and build quality Is as good or better than it ever has been.
For hunters looking for a good moderate load for taking larger game, this is an excellent option. Especially where slugs don’t make sense or where multiple tags can be employed for variable wildlife; or even where you expect to encounter nuisance animals like medium predators or scavengers. Shooting a scavenger or a dangerous small animal doesn’t always make sense with a high powered rifled cartridge. Sometimes having the versatility of a shotgun on hand during a hunt is very helpful. This is that kind of load. Something you can count on to perform multiple jobs well, and still effectively dispatch your target game.
Achieving 1325 feet per second of muzzle velocity out of the barrel and offering excellent patterns on target means you are delivering a large quantity of lead onto your chosen target. The build quality and reputation of Winchester Super-X is just a nice background reminder that you made the right choice.
