Ammo — it’s what makes the deer hunting world go ‘round. Every fall, deer hunters stock up on it to shoot and hunt with. This year will be no different. What will be different though is a hot new slug option on the market, courtesy of Winchester. The new Deer Season Slug is here, and we’re truly excited about it.

This new ammo option conducted incredible amounts of research and comprehensive testing to ensure this load is deer-ready. And it is. It utilizes a rear-stabilized wad. The best part? It travels downrange with the slug. This increases accuracy which translates to better shots and more recoverable deer.

  • Designed for superior performance in all (12-gauge) shotguns
  • Integrates a rear-stabilized wad to improve accuracy
  • Offers high velocity and carries greater energy and knockdown power
