Winchester E-Tech Shotshells

Looking for an environmentally positive shotgun shell? Winchester released the new E-Tech shotshells at SHOT Show 2024. The shells are engineered with state-of-the-art BioAmmo wads, which are made from bio-polymers that have been many years in the making. Whether on the clay range, or in the field hunting, these shotshells perform exactly like traditional plastic shells.

Winchester’s E-Tech shotgun shells feature consistent muzzle velocity when expanding gases are sealed by the bio-polymer over-powder wad and are engineered to stand up to high velocity and pressure when fired.

The shells are outfitted either with traditional lead or without lead and available in 12 gauge.

Federal Personal Defense Hydra-Shok Deep

Federal is reinventing the classic .32 ACP defensive cartridge with the newest state-of-the-art technology. Federal’s Hydra-Shok has been an industry staple since 1989, but moving forward, the Hydro-Shok Deep builds off the original design, with design improvements that meet more modern performance requirements.

The .32 ACP version features a vigorous core design and center post that penetrate to the optimal depths needed for self-defense situations.

The Federal .32 ACP Hydra-Shok round also uses a specially formulated propellant, reliable primers and meets requirements needed to provide stable and deep penetration.

Norma .22 LR Extreme

Norma’s .22 LR Extreme rimfire cartridges are designed with performance in mind. Raising the bar for long-range rimfire cartridges, the patented bullet features an elongated tip for better aerodynamics. The streamlined base causes a lower amount of pressure at the tail resulting in a higher speed over distance and exponentially increases accuracy.

In addition to this, the bullet is a great choice for long range target shooting due to its flat and stable trajectory and the increased weight of the bullet assists in lowering crosswind fluctuation, meeting precision needs beyond 300 yards.

Cutting Edge 8.6 Subsonic Raptor Bullets

Cutting Edge Bullets has added 8.6mm subsonic bullets to their Raptor Line. The bullets are of a lathe turned, and solid copper design and engineered to expand down to 760 fps to provide the most trauma and stopping power.

Cutting Edge bullets have a patented SealTite band that forms a complete seal as the bullet enters and exits the barrel. This also reduces copper fouling, allowing more shots between cleanings. The band encircling the body of the bullets is slightly larger than the caliber diameter and allows for a perfect fit.
