New For 2024: Winchester 400 Legend Deer Season XP, Super Suppressed Ammo

posted on January 27, 2024

During the 2023 NRA Annual Meeting, Winchester debuted its 400 Legend cartridge in its Power Point line. Now, it is extending the offering into its Deer Season XP and Super Suppressed families, the latter of which is on display at SHOT Show's 2024 Industry Day at the Range.

In the last several years, there's been an uptick in the use of straight-wall cartridges for hunting big game animals, whitetail deer specifically, which is thanks in part to legislation to allow for the use of rifles chambered for cartridges such as .45-70 Gov't, .444 Marlin, .44 Rem. Mag., Winchester's 350 Legend and more. Winchester sought to improve on the concept with its 400 Legend cartridge and now offers a bullet designed wholly for hunting whitetail deer, Deer Season XP, in its lineup. The new 400 Legend Deer Season XP load features a 215-grain, lead-tipped projectile designed for rapid expansion and maximum upset. Winchester states this new load offers 100 percent more energy on target at 100 yards compared to 12-ga. slugs while also cutting 55 percent of the comparable recoil.

Featuring the Open Tip Range bullet weighing in at 300 grains, Winchester New Super Suppressed 400 Legend load is not only hard-hitting, it is quiet, and its cup-and-core, copper-over-lead design offers premier protection qualities. And powered to give subsonic velocities, this new 400 Legend loading is ideally suited for use with silencers. The Super Suppressed line is not only engineered for noise reduction, its characteristics help to decrease fouling and buildup in barrels and muzzle devices while also being soft on the shoulder.
