Madison, N.C. – From the company that created the performance standard for ultra high density, non toxic shotshells with the Premier® Hevi-Shot® brand, comes a revolutionary new product that raises the performance standard yet again. Remington is proud to announce Wingmaster HD, the ultimate in high-performance hunting ammunition, will be available for the 2006 waterfowl season.
Remington’s industry-leading R&D team, in partnership with world-renowned metallurgists has developed a technological breakthrough in material composition and pellet forming processes. Utilizing Remington’s proprietary composite of tungsten-bronze-iron metal (approved for waterfowl hunting by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service), Wingmaster HD outperforms existing products with distinct and measurable advantages in pattern density and overall multi-range effectiveness.
With “Drop-Dead Better” Performance - Wingmaster HD exhibits the following advantages:
12.0 Grams/CC Pellet Density | The optimal pellet density for an ideal combination of pattern energy and dispersion without sacrificing pellet count at extended ranges – unlike some competitive loads.
Round, Smooth, True-to-Size Pellets | Wingmaster HD pellets are smooth and round, resulting in true flight for dense, efficient patterns with no flyers. Every pellet is consistent in size and shape and equally effective in performance.
Choke Responsiveness | Changing hunting conditions often call for an adjustment in pattern diameter. Wingmaster HD has a hardness rating similar to steel shot resulting in improved choke tube responsiveness – a benefit not previously obtainable with high density shot materials.
Equal Energy in Every Pellet | Because Wingmaster HD pellets are true-to-size and round, individual pellets maintain consistent velocity and energy for deep penetration at long range – better than competitive products of comparable density.
In recent years, non-toxic shotshell ammunition technology has advanced dramatically, forever changing the sport of waterfowl hunting. Remington Premier Hevi-Shot gave hunters the capability to effectively harvest birds with a degree of lethality never before attainable. Remington’s commitment to continuous improvement and evolving technological advancements has led to the development of Wingmaster HD, once again, setting the standard for the next generation of non-toxic shotshell ammunition with “Drop-Dead Better” performance.
