About Super-X

The technology behind Super-X was conceived by past president and owner of Winchester, John Olin. As a chemical engineer and avid duck hunter, he correctly theorized that progressive burning powders could achieve faster velocities and more downrange energy without the dangerous pressure spikes that would have come with using the common powders of that era. While it is common today, Super-X was revolutionary and offered dramatically improved performance over the competition in its early days.  

Mr. Olin once shared a funny story about a duck club rivalry that inspired this development. A “duck shooter” he shared the blind with would shoot ducks on the water rather than as they were flying. After a heated discussion about conservation and sportsmanship, Mr. Olin had made up his mind to develop a product to teach this man a lesson. When he came back the next season, Olin had a product that allowed him to effectively shoot ducks fifty yards away — an impressive feat at that time. The rival “duck shooter” didn’t get a duck that morning, and Super-X was born.

This same concept of progressive burning powders achieving high velocity was later applied to a line of centerfire and rimfire products that have been extremely popular with recreational shooters and hunters ever since.
