Gear Review: Winchester Varmint HE 3/1 Segmenting Bullet

Winchester Ammunition continues to pioneer innovation and expand its rimfire offerings in 2011 by adding the Varmint HE™ 3/1 Segmenting expansion bullet to its rimfire hunting lineup.

The unique 3/1 segment design exclusive to Winchester, features a 37 gr plated HP fragmenting  expansion bullet that delivers a blistering 1435 fps velocity, optimized for maximum accuracy. The programmed hollow-point fragments include three forward segments, plus a solid rear core designed to provide explosive impact energy plus penetration. In addition, the Varmint HE consists of non-corrosive priming and clean burning powder to generate a sure fire ignition every time.

  • Velocity: 1435 fps
  • Grains: 37 gr
