winchester.jpgFor 2008, Winchester Ammunition offers a reduced recoil load for the .460 S&W Magnum, allowing shooters more pleasurable target sessions and hunting options. A proven big bore hunting caliber, the .460 S&W provides excellent energy transfer and deep penetration. The new Winchester Super-X® .460 S&W Reduced Recoil round features a 250-grain jacketed hollow point bullet, a muzzle velocity of 1,450 feet per second (fps) and an impressive 1,517 foot-pounds of muzzle energy.

Engineered to offer nearly 50-percent reduction in recoil compared to full power loads, while still retaining enough energy for hunting at normal handgun distances, the new .460 S&W Reduced Recoil load is an ideal choice for deer-sized game, predators and target shooting. The more manageable recoil also allows hunters the benefit of quicker follow-up shots.

Long recognized as the leader in big bore handgun products, Winchester continues its dedication to offering shooters a wide array of options to better match their load with their chosen sport or hunt. The new Reduced Recoil load joins the Winchester Supreme® .460 S&W 260-grain Partition Gold® full power load introduced in 2007, as well as a full complement of other big bore handgun cartridge loads.

The new .460 Super-X S&W Reduced Recoil features:
– 250-grain jacketed hollow point bullet
– More manageable recoil for quicker follow-up shots
– Muzzle velocity of 1,450 fps
– Muzzle energy of 1,157 foot-pounds
– Suited for deer-sized game, predators and target shooting
