Yes. I have several boxes of both the Winchester 64-grain Power Point and the 64-grain Supreme Power Point Plus and they both have the Cannelure.

So now the regular Super-X 64 gr Powerpoint comes with a cannelure too? I'm just wondering because it didn't in the past. -CH

I bought both (Power Point & Power Point plus) from "Cheaper Than Dirt" in September 2002. Both have the Cannelure.

Cool! Glad to hear they made the change. BTW, can you tell any difference in velocity or POI between the two loads? It seems I once saw somewhere that the PP+ had a higher velocity. I am just trying to determine whether or not this is the case. -CH

Winchester claims a muzzle velocity of 3,020fps for the PP and 3,090fps for the PP+. They don't say what barrel length, but I would guess it's from a 24-inch barrel (most manufacture's claims are). I can't really feel much of a difference when shooting. The big difference is the bullet in the PP+ is moly coated and has a much slimmer and longer profile with a more pointed nose. I'm not sure if the jacket is any thicker or thinner though. If you go to Winchester's website they have the specs and pictures of both rounds with the bullets cut in half for viewing comparison.
