EAST ALTON, Ill., May 8, 2018 – Winchester became the first United States manufacturer to introduce steel shellcase pistol ammunition in 2016 with its USA Forged™ line. USA Forged is made in the USA. In 2018, Winchester will offer USA Forged in economically priced 50-round boxes and a 1000-round stackable case, new additions that compliment the current 150-round box offering.
Key features of USA Forged include:
USA-made steel shellcase
Brass jacketed lead core FMJ bullet (Designed for use in all firearms and on all ranges)
Non-corrosive boxer primers for long storage life and reliable ignition
Clean-burning powder for less barrel fouling
Rust preventative coating reduces residue on hands when handling
USA Forged is value priced, making it ideal for anyone looking to save money on high-volume range sessions and plinking for practice or fun. The steel cases also make it easy for pick up when the shooting is done by simply using a magnet to collect them from the ground.
“USA Forged is ideal for shooters who want to spend less on ammunition so they can spend more time on the range,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of marketing and sales for Winchester Ammunition. “Meeting the needs of our customers is always top of mind and this new 50-pack is a simple way to do just that.”
