Winchester PDX1 Ammunition was tested by the FBI to see if it can stand up to real world, life threatening situations. This ammunition has impressive expansion and notable velocities at various ranges thanks to Winchester's proprietary bonding process. In PDX1 ammunition, Winchester engineers have created a self defense load that exhibits controlled expansion and a higher weight retention.
In addition to the 3 pellets of Grex buffered 00 buckshot, this load also features a 1 oz rifled slug which creates a tight pattern for extra protection. Loaded in black hulls with a black oxide high-base.
What Customers Are Saying
Not bad at all
I had my reservations about these rounds due to the low velocity rating and was worried about the accuracy of the slug with buckshot, but I saw them at a local shop and purchased a box just to test at a range. Fired two shells from my 20in Maverick 88 at 20 meters and had both slugs right on top of each other and the buckshot spread just over 7 inches at the furthest points of impact. Needless to say I was pretty impressed and decided to load the rest of the shells and let loose just to see if my first two shots weren't a fluke. Slugs all stayed in a nice group and the buck shot never strayed past a 7 inch spread. This is now my round of choice when it comes to home defense, and I might even try it the next time I go hog hunting to check its knockdown power.
