New from Winchester: Deer Season XP Copper Impact rifle ammunition provides devastating terminal performance on deer with increased weight retention and deeper penetration.

Like the original Deer Season XP, Copper Impact features a large-diameter polymer tip and an engineered hollow-point bullet that initiates rapid expansion on impact. What differentiates this new version, is the solid copper bullet design that offers improved weight retention over standard jacketed lead-core bullets and a different colored polymer tip for product differentiation from standard Deer Season XP loads.
