Winchester® USA Ready Defense™

EAST ALTON, Ill. (January 29, 2021) — Be ready when you need it most with Winchester® Ammunition’s new USA Ready Defense™ handgun ammunition. Offering the ideal combination of stopping power, penetration and reliable expansion through popular concealed carry pistols, USA Ready Defense ammunition provides the go-to solution for personal defense and home protection.
USA Ready Defense ammunition features a distinctive Hex-Vent™ bullet design. Nested inside the jacketed hollow point cavity is the revolutionary Hex-Vent rigid insert that shields the hollow point from obstruction while channeling material flow for positive bullet expansion.

Along with sledgehammer-like impact, USA Ready Defense ammunition achieves high accuracy and trusted reliability thanks to its Match Grade Primer and lot-controlled loading techniques. In fact, the individual ballistics data for each lot of USA Ready ammunition are available online at
USA Ready Defense ammunition is available in 9mm Luger +P, 40 S&W and 45 Auto.

Being ready is more than a state of mind. Look for Winchester USA Ready Defense ammunition in 20-round boxes at a retailer or dealer near you.
