I recently had the honor of attending a hunt where I was one of six hunters whom were the first to have an opportunity to kill a deer with the new Winchester Deer Season XP Copper Impact load and Winchester XPR rifles.
Excitement doesn’t even describe it.
First of all, the opportunity to test the new round was incredible on its own. Throw in the added perk of chasing big-bodied Midwestern whitetails and it was just too much to pass up. I packed everything up and headed for deer camp.
Before we delve in, its important to establish that this new load is most certainly deer-ready. The engineers who worked on it, definitely got it right. It flies true. It hits hard. It brings deer down fast.
