Winchester has unveiled the 400 Legend, a new straight-walled cartridge promising exceptional ballistics for hunters and sport shooters alike. This cartridge offers moderate recoil and impressive terminal performance, particularly within 300-yard hunting situations.
Eligibility for Restricted States
The 400 Legend’s straight-walled design allows it to be used in several states that impose restrictions on bottle-necked cartridges for hunting purposes. This powerful cartridge is ideal for hunting deer, pig, black bear, and other big game, providing significant advantages in ballistics performance, recoil, and penetration.
400 Legend Features & Benefits:
- Similar energy as the 450 Bushmaster with 20% less recoil
- Over 20% more energy than the 30-30 Winchester and 25% more energy than the 350 Legend, with greater penetration
- 100% more energy than a 12-gauge slug at 100 yards
- 55% less recoil than a 12-gauge slug
A Testament to Winchester’s Innovation
Ben Frank, senior product manager for Winchester Ammunition, remarked, “As the leader in cartridge development, the 400 Legend is a testament to our Winchester team that continues to prioritize innovative products and our world-renowned brand.” The company’s recent achievements with the 6.8 Western and 350 Legend showcase their commitment to offering hunters and sport shooters value. Winchester’s legacy in manufacturing high-quality products with enhanced ballistics remains unmatched.
