Introducing the New Winchester Model 70 Super Shadow™ Super Short in WSSM Calibers.

Product Spotlight

What do you get when you evolve the high performance Winchester Short Magnum concept into the realm of smaller, higher velocity bullets? You get the 223 WSSM and 243 WSSM cartridges – Winchester Super Short Magnums. They are short, stout and fast like no other production calibers ever. The case is based on the proven WSM design, but is shortened and necked for some of the best bullets ever. The cartridge case, with both new calibers, is over ½” shorter than popular “short” action calibers. This means the steel action itself is shorter. And with the shorter action – an entirely new class of action for the Model 70 – you get a shorter overall rifle length for maneuverability and pointability. A Winchester chambered for a WSSM is easy to carry and easy to shoulder. Yet, with its advanced recoil pad design, these little magnums are tamed and easily handled even by smaller shooters. The WSSM concept itself provides an exceptionally efficient burn, primarily because of the larger diameter of the cartridge base. This additionally increases the uniformity of the powder burn itself. Seasoned target shooters will tell you that a uniform burn equals uniform accuracy. You get the velocity of an efficient burn combined with the accuracy of a more uniform burn. No wonder the Winchester Super Short Magnums are destined to be hot for decades to come. The 243 caliber bullets used in the new 243 WSSM are among the most accurate and ballistically stable made. For this reason the .243 caliber is considered ideal for deer hunting and is felt by many – in 95 grain and 100 grain offerings -- to be the best whitetail loadings for nearly any situation. Most states also allow the use of .223 caliber bullets for deer hunting as well. With it’s extreme, flat shooting characteristics, the 223 WSSM gives today’s “rifleman” a serious tool for precision big game hunting as well as potentially being the best caliber ever for varmints and bench shooting. Like its WSM counterpart, the new WSSM calibers will be chambered in the all new Winchester Controlled Round Push Feed action (CRPF) in the new Super Shadow stock design, creating a package with ultimate ballistics, accuracy, handling and durability. Initially, Winchester will offer 55 and 64 grain loadings in the 223 WSSM and 55, 95 and 100 grain loadings in the 243 WSSM.
