Winchester Ammunition adds 10mm to its lineup of full metal jacket and Defender loads, bringing more variety to 10mm pistol fans.

The FMJ load ships in the all too familiar white box with 180-grain flat nose full metal jacket 10mm loads nestled inside. Winchester says this load was designed for target practice and competition bringing both “superb performance and a great value” to the table.

Following the FMJ, Winchester also announced the 10mm will also appear on the Defender self-defense and hunting line. The 180-grain bonded ammunition sees the jacket welded to the lead core bringing consistency in penetration as well as increased weight retention. Winchester says the bullet design, originally created for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was developed to introduce both consistency and reliability to pistol shooting.

The FMJ and Defender ammunition are available now, shipping in boxes of 20. The FMJ retails for $24 while the Defender in 10mm is priced at $30.
