In order to meet the demands of the growing 3-Gun market, Winchester has developed custom loads, with a dual emphasis on speed and accuracy.

Winchester’s Win3Gun is competition-grade ammunition, available in the calibers used in 3-Gun competition-9 mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, 5.56 mm and 12 gauge.

All pistol cartridges (9 mm, 40 S&W and 45 ACP) in the Win3Gun line use lead-free primers and heel-encapsulated bullets. This makes the pistol offerings incredibly clean firing, which in turn keeps the compensator ports of popular competition pistols clean and free of vaporized lead.

The Win3Gun line also includes a center-fire rifle round in 5.56 mm with a 55-grain bullet and two 12-gauge shotgun loads with 7½ shot and 00 buckshot.

“3-Gun competition presents a very unique set of challenges and our engineers have stepped up to give competitors a new brand of Winchester ammunition on which they can stake their reputations,” said Brett Flaugher, vice president of sales, marketing and strategy for Winchester Ammunition. “Win3Gun meets the power factor requirements of most competitive shooting leagues and is designed for great functionality, speed, cleanliness and winning.”
