Winchester Ammunition added popular new calibers and bullet weights to its USA Ready line of select-grade ammunition products, including 10 mm, 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5 PRC.  

The increasingly popular 10 mm is now offered in both USA Ready full metal jacket (FMJ) for training and competition, as well as in the USA Ready Defense line for personal protection.

The Winchester USA Ready rifle-ammo line has also grown, with the addition of a 140-grain open-tip bullet loaded in 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5 PRC that promises the ultimate accuracy and reliability in long-range target shooting.

Winchester USA Ready products provide a new option for competitors and target shooters who are looking for premium performance and components for their ammunition. Flat nose or open-tip bullets are used for optimum accuracy, and match-grade primers provide improved consistency. 

Winchester USA Ready Defense, including the new defensive offering in 10 mm, utilizes premium components and match-grade primers alongside the company’s innovative Hex-Vent hollow point bullet. The Hex-Vent is a rigid insert that shields the bullet’s hollow point from obstruction while channeling material flow to help ensure positive bullet expansion in tissue, even after clearing barriers that could otherwise plug a hollowpoint cavity.

In addition, Winchester also includes a unique lot code on each package that allows customers to look up the factory testing results for their specific lot of ammunition online at A dedicated page USA Ready page includes velocity, accuracy and pressure data from each manufactured lot, providing unprecedented specificity for the end user.
