They didn’t just slap a turkey on the box and decide to call it Longbeard XR and market it to turkey hunters. In fact the engineers at Winchester decided exactly what they wanted to accomplish and created the technology to make it happen. For example, the Longbeard XR has taken the effective range of a common turkey load and extended it. This didn’t happen overnight, but once you understand how they created it, you will quickly see why it has become so effective. The results speak for themselves, but it’s always interesting to learn exactly what has been changed to make you a better, more effective hunter in the field.
