Winchester Ammunition launched the Expedition Big Game Long Range ammo line in spring of 2017, and as soon as I got my hands on it in 6.5 Creedmoor I fell in love. Across a dozen or more TTAG review guns, the EBGLR load was the most consistent and accurate load in at least three quarters of those guns and was in the top two or three loads in the rest.

It’s really good looking, consistently-loaded ammunition topped with high ballistic coefficient Nosler AccuBond Long Range projectiles.

My only complaint since the line’s launch is that it was only available in three or four cartridges, which expanded over the last three years to include: 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Winchester, 7mm Remington Magnum, .30-06 Springfield, .300 Winchester Magnum, and .300 WSM.

I kid you not, every time over the last few years that I received a .308 Winchester rifle for testing I tried to find some Expedition Big Game Long Range ammo and was reminded that, oh yeah, they don’t make it in good ‘ol .308. Well…now they do!

Winchester Ammunition has just released EBGLR in .308 Winchester, 6.5 PRC, and in the new cartridge from Winchester and Browning called 6.8 Western, which looks pretty awesome on paper.

Expedition Big Game Long Range™ 308 Winchester: Improved Performance From a Time-Honored Cartridge

EAST ALTON, Ill. (February 16, 2021) — Almost as popular as its older brother, the 30-06 and, as surely tested, the 308 Winchester have for generations given big-game hunters outstanding performance in a compact cartridge and shorter-action rifles.

Now, Winchester® Ammunition raises the bar by pairing the tried-and-true loading with the superbly reliable and supremely accurate 168-grain AccuBond® bullet in the Expedition Big Game Long Range™ 308 Winchester cartridge.

Expedition Big Game Long Range offerings are loaded with the AccuBond Long Range bullet, which features a polymer tip and extended ogive and boattail, making for high-ballistic coefficients for improved long-range capability. Maximum retained weight and deeper, controlled penetration are brought about by the bonding of the lead alloy core to the bullet jacket. Additionally, the bullet jacket is engineered for reliable expansion at long ranges without failing at close ones. When it comes to terminal performance, Expedition Big Game Long Range gives the hunter massive knockdown power and surer kills.

Look for Winchester Expedition Big Game Long Range AccuBond Long Range chambered in 308 Winchester at a retailer or dealer near you.

Winchester Expedition Big Game Long Range is built for the toughest big game wherever your hunting takes you.
