Winchester

.410 Ammunition   

This company is a long time friend of .410 enthusiasts. Winchester produces a larger variety of .410 shotshells than any other ammunition manufacturer. In keeping with their tradition of providing shooters with more options, Winchester has developed the unique dual-payload PDX-1 .410 shotshell to complement their popular 000 buckshot loads.

          

Winchester PDX1:

2½” .410 Defense Load     

    

The PDX-1 offers a balanced solution for self defense. The three defense disks provide tight central groups and greater penetration, like buckshot, while the 12 BB shot pellets spread out to create a larger strike area. This round is designed to be fired in .45 Colt/410 handguns and .410 shotguns, including .410 shotguns fitted with full chokes.
