Browning® Ammunition BXD™ Waterfowl Adds New Shot Size

Arnold, Mo., May 9, 2018 – When it comes to waterfowl hunting, tough shots demand a tough shotshell and Browning® BXD™ Waterfowl Extra Distance delivers. Browning BXD features an optimized wad for long-range shots and premium plated round-steel shot designed to maintain tight patterns and lethal energy out to 50 and 60 yards. Available now, Browning BXD Waterfowl expands its versatility for waterfowlers by adding a 12 and 20 gauge, 3-inch No. 3 shotshell.

Browning BXD Waterfowl ammunition utilizes an aerodynamically stabilized long-range wad that holds the shot charge together through the bore and controls pellet separation for better down-range patterns. The premium plated round-steel shot provides corrosion resistance and enhances aerodynamic performance. Lastly, the high velocity increases long-range performance and lethality.

2018 New Product Offerings:


Gauge Shell Length Shot Size Ounces Velocity
12 3” 3 1 ¼ 1450 fps
20 3” 3 1 1300 fps

“All shot is not created equal,” said Ben Frank, Browning Ammunition brand manager. “Browning BXD Waterfowl uses the most optimum shot for this line of ammunition and pairs it with a specially-engineered wad to provide waterfowlers with the ability to shoot tight patterns at longer distances out to 50 and 60 yards.”

BXD Waterfowl was the recipient of the 2018 NRA American Hunter Golden Bullseye Award.
