Time is winding down in South Dakota. The Keefer Brothers and Jason Brown spend their final day pursuing the showstopping Merriam’s turkeys. It’s been an unforgettable hunt so far, and the friends look to add to the memories—and the turkey count. When they cross paths with a flock of prairie-roaming gobblers, the crew is ready with Long Beard XR.
The Keefer Brothers and longtime friend Jason Brown made cherished memories while hunting Merriam’s wild turkeys in South Dakota. Though they traded the Midwest timbers for the golden prairies of the west, the crew never leaves home without Winchester. For good reason.
Reliability reaps rewards….With Winchester Ammunition’s innovative technologies, wild turkey hunters end their days afield with feathers in tow.
Winchester Long Beard XR is specifically designed for extreme lethality at longer ranges. When a dauntless tom struts toward a flock of hens, distance is no longer an issue. Thanks to Shot-Lok™ Technology, Long Beard XR ammunition is lethal from over 40 yards away, while achieving 10 percent greater penetration over standard lead loads beyond 50 yards.
So how does Shot-Lok™ technology work? Shot-Lok™ technology employs a hardened resin that surrounds the pellets. The resin fills the spaces around the pellets, eliminating movement and maintaining the pellet’s shape. When the shell ignites, the resin fractures, protecting the shot during in-bore acceleration and creating a tighter, straighter shot for consistent takedowns.
When the birds are off their roost, you want to ensure your game is on. Winchester is not only ready when you are, but provides the precise tools to get the job done.
