First Look: Winchester USA Forged 9mm

First Look: Winchester USA Forged 9mm

In a nod to recreational and competitive pistol shooters, Winchester introduced the USA Forged steel case 9mm round, which are manufactured in Winchester's Oxford, Miss. facility. USA Forged is the first example of a steel-cased pistol round that is wholly made in the United States.

The round, currently offered only in 9mm, consists of a 115-gr. full metal jacket bullet. Each round is loaded to exacting Winchester standards and are said to feature great on-the-range performance with an average muzzle velocity of 1,190 fps. The rounds are loaded with non-corrosive boxer primers and use clean-burning powder to minimize fouling in high-volume range sessions.

The jacketed bullets are safe for use in ported, vented or suppressed pistols and range clean-up is a snap when shooters use a magnet on steel cases. Each steel shell case also includes a proprietary coating to improve reliability and corrosion resistance.usa-ammo-forged-winchester
