Winchester® Ammunition introduces its 2009 line of centerfire rifle ammunition. Super-X® Power Max Bonded™ is specifically designed for the whitetail deer hunter and takes the time-proven jacketed bullet design to a new level of performance at an affordable price. Winchester’s proprietary bonding process welds lead to a copper alloy jacket where the two act together during expansion for improved penetration and retained weight.

“The bonding technology improves bullet performance with increased retained weight and deeper penetration, while still providing a quick and lethal knock-down,” said Glen Weeks, Centerfire Product Manager for Winchester Ammunition.  “For any whitetail hunter who is interested in bullet strength and penetration, the new Power Max Bonded is it.”

Key features of the Super-X bullet include:

  • Protected hollowpoint PHP design
  • Lead core bonded to jacket with proprietary process
  • Massive frontal area of mushroom is more than double original diameter
  • Lead remains bonded to jacket after impact

Super-X Power Max Bonded will be offered in the following calibers and bullet weights, with expected store delivery set for June of 2009:
