Winchester® Ammunition to Celebrate Legendary Firearm with Win1911™ Ammunition Line
EAST ALTON, Ill. (Nov. 18, 2013) —The Model 1911 pistol is an American icon. Since its wide use in World War I, the M1911 pistol has become one of the most popular pistols of the last century – being made by almost every American firearm manufacturer. Winchester® Ammunition has now released The Win1911™ line as a functional ammunition line to accompany the M1911.
The .45 ACP rounds will be available with either a flat nose full metal jacket (FMJ) or jacketed hollow point (JHP) design. The flat nose FMJ rounds are built for high accuracy and exhibit precision groups. The JHP rounds are designed to shoot to the same point of impact as their FMJ counterparts, and the ballistics are also matched in velocity and trajectory. Together, both products in the Win1911™ line are perfect for practice and personal defense.
Both the FMJ and JHP designs feature nickel-plated bullet jackets for easy identification and 230 grain bullets.
“The M1911 pistol is one of the most recognizable and iconic firearms on the market. We at Winchester have undertaken significant testing to maximize functioning and accuracy with these new offerings to create an ammunition line that lives up to the name of the legendary pistol,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of sales, marketing and strategy.
