Product Description

Winchester Blind Side 12 Gauge High Velocity Steel Shotgun Ammunition introduces one of the most innovative shotshell loads in the brand’s 144-year history. The new Winchester Blind Side High Velocity 12 Gauge Shotgun Ammunition combines ground-breaking, stacked HEX Shot technology and the new Diamond Cut Wad in the most deadly Winchester waterfowl load available. Loaded with 100 percent HEX Shot, you get more pellets on target, a larger kill zone and more trauma inducing pellets than ever before, meaning quick kill shots.

Blind Side pellets are not round but hexahedronal – that is, rounded, but with six flat sides, like dice. The advantage to the shape is two-fold: the pellets pack more compactly into a hull, allowing higher payloads 1 3/8 ounces in a 3.5-inch hull while having a higher velocity, and the shape increases shock trauma on tissue when it hits.

Because squared pellets are a poorer aerodynamic shape than round pellets, this new shot has to be contained in a solid, unsplit shotcup to prevent the shot charge from behaving like a spreader load and opening up into very wide patterns. The cup has diamond-shaped cutout petals that deploy as the load exits the muzzle. They hold the shot together for a very short distance before the petals act like brakes and separate the wad from the shot. The combination works well and it seems to pattern like lead: the 1 3/8 ounce loads of 2s we shot printed about 50% patterns at 40 yards through an IC and tightened to just over 70% with Full.

Key Features of Winchester Blind Side Steel Shot 12 Gauge Shotgun Ammunition:

  • High Packing Density
    With the unique shape of HEX Shot, Winchester literally packs the shot into the wad shot cup more efficiently to give the hunter up to 15 percent more shot pellets per shell.
  • Hex Steel Shot
    Six-sided, multiple-edged shot provides increased trauma and wound channels, resulting in fast kills and 250 percent more trauma. The shot is designed to hit waterfowl like high-velocity tumbling bricks—preventing over penetration and maximizing energy deposit and knock-down shock within the bird.
  • Diamond Cut Wad
    The Blind Side Diamond Cut Wad is designed to maximize pattern performance of Hex Shot, resulting in consistent patterns that increase the kill zone up to 25 percent. Winchester Blind Side Steel Shot 12 Gauge Shotgun Ammunition HEX Shot and the Diamond Cut Wad system is also choke responsive, providing consistent patterns through improved cylinder, modified or full choke systems.
  • Drylok Super Steel System
    Important to duck hunters is keeping your powder dry. This system seals out water and moisture and is corrosion resistant for improved patterning and consistent velocities.

Blasting South KillerKiller from Miami, FL USA
Bad A$$... I usally blast duck out of the sky... But this puts them on the Moon!
How is the quality? Does it have every feature you need?
This shot is better than expected. Thick 3" heavy and fast load to blast any size of birds and good a t short and long distance.... In cleaning the ducks with my brother we pulled out the shot from both his expert steel and blind side ... the blind side created major hemorrhaging at 4 shot vs. expert at 2 shot.... good buy.
What do you like or dislike about the features?
hopefully the price on ammo goes down with a new president in a few years ... to enjoy the outdoors more ... and whack more ducks for my dinner plate!
Do you think this item is a good value?
the value of a good shot is never to underestimate ... but a tad up there.
Which flyway do you hunt in?
Eastern Flyway sunny and warm South Florida.
Please give your general opinion of this product.
