Winchester makes the highest quality ammunition components available to the ammo reloader. And each and every component is made to meet and exceed the most demanding quality control and performance standards in the industry - Winchester's!
Bullets are custom-designed and manufactured to precise specifications to deliver specific on-target performance characteristics. These characterisics vary depending on bullet design. Winchester carries a variety of component bullets for both centerfire rifle and handgun ammunition.
Shellcases for handguns and rifles are engineered to precise tolerances to ensure smooth-feeding and positive chambering. Winchester carries unprimed rifle shellcases and both primed and unprimed handgun shellcases.

Non-corrosive, all weather primers deliver fast, dependable ignition under any shooting condition. Winchester works to make sure all primers are reliable, instant and precise. In Winchester testing labs, primers are constantly and rigorously tested for consistency and sensitivity at temperatures and conditions far beyond the range of normal usage. Winchester guarantees better sensivity for more positive firing in all guns, carefully-controlled weights of primer mixtures, consistency in size and quality, precise measurements and tolerances for anvil heights, and stability in extremes of temperatures and humidity.
Reloaders seldom give wads the same critical attention given to other components. Often the result is poor performance - due entirely to the wad. Paper cup and fiber wads provide effective gas pressure seals inslug loads. Plastic shot cups protect buckshot pellets and provide improved pattern performance for new low recoil buck shot loads. And of course the reload wouldn't be complete without Winchester shot. Winchester's uniform, chilled lead shot provides consistent shot patterns and better penetration. Strict quality control throughout the manufacturing process assures the ultimate in performance.
