Move Over Fail Safe

Winchester's new XP3 bullets are available in its new Supreme Elite ammunition brand.PERCEPTION is everything to the success of a big game bullet, and Winchester Ammunition believes it has covered all the bases with its new XP3 bullet.  In fact, the P3 designation of the bullet's name stands for precision, power, and penetration.  After shooting the .30-caliber 180-grain XP3 bullet at targets and into water-soaked bundles of newspaper and a bull elk, I'd say Winchester has all its Ps in a row, and then some.

The XP3 features all the accessories perceived as essential in a modern bullet.  Starting at the top, the XP3 sports a semi-transparent red plastic tip.  Winchester states the polymer tip increases the bullet's ballistic coefficient and helps "produce consistent expansion of the hollow point design of the XP3 bullet at a wide range of velocities."  A web of copper separates the front hollow cavity from a rear lead core.  The lead core is soldered to a gilding-metal jacket with a slight boat tail.  The jacket is finished with a Lubalox coat of black oxide.

XP3 bullets were designed and are manufactured wholly by Winchester Ammunition.  That's unlike other bullets, like the Ballistic Silvertip and Fail Safe, made by Winchester in collaboration with Nosler Bullets and labeled Combined Technology.
