Winchester XP3 Ammunition - 150 gr .270 cal Review:
Warning, this video shows an exit wound on animal flesh.
Sorry this video is currently not available. Please notify us.
The ammo I used was a .270 caliber with a 150 grain bullet. This bullet is a very flexible round that will shoot flat at long distances thanks to its polymer tip and still be able to handle short ranges with good expansion. This is a bonded bullet rated for game like antelope all the way up to Elk. I shot a black bear with this round at about 30 yards and the entrance wound was the size of a pencil and the exit hole was about the size of a tennis ball. This was a dramatic wound channel that was actually bigger than the exit wound of a .50 muzzleloader bullet that was used on another bear. These are premium bullets at a premium price, but worth it if you don't reload and want a top of the line bullet with great ballistics. These bullets are made up of a nickel plated casing and a lubblox coated bullet that is supposed to help with barrel fouling.
