405 Winchester Ammo

The 405 Winchester, also known as the 405 Win, 405 Winchester Centerfire and 405 WCF, is over a century old and is a large bore round. It was designed for the famed Winchester lever action repeating rifle model 1895. The 405 Win is one of the most powerful rounds ever designed solely for a lever action rifle with projectiles that typically weigh 300 grains. A 300 grain 405 Win bullet is capable of reaching over 2,200 feet per second. The cartridge gained some fame after becoming a favorite of Theodore Roosevelt, who had taken the round and a Winchester rifle hunting in Africa. He referred to the weapon and the round as a medicine gun for lions. The weapon served our former president extremely well, as well as generations of hunters.
