Featuring special headstamps and packaging, the ammo maker says their line of .45, .30 Carbine, .30-06, and 12 gauge ammo will be loaded to correct wartime specifications.

Packaged in period style cartons and collector’s wooden boxes, the loads will include 150-grain M2 ball for the .30-06, 230-grain M1911 loads in .45ACP, 110-grain M1 ball for .30 Carbine and all-brass M19 9-pellet 00 military buck for 12 gauge shotguns.

On Industry Day at the Range on Monday, Winchester had stacks of M2 ball on hand to work through a vintage M1 Garand.

Meanwhile, at their booth, the company exhibited the packaging for all four loads alongside loaned firearms from the Cody Firearms Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Sadly, no brass M19 shells were available.

The loads will be released throughout 2018 and 2019. No MSRP is available.
