(GunReports.com) — In 2014, Winchester Ammunition will extend its AA TrAAcker shotshell line into the popular sporting clays offerings of 12 and 20 gauge.
The company says this provides more options to consumers to assist shooters in identifying where and why they’re missing their targets. During this process, shooters and instructors are able to visibly see where they are missing with the AA TrAAcker technology, and can easily make adjustments to correct it.
The AA TrAAcker is the first game and target load to feature a weighted wad that actually tracks with the shot string. This allows the shooter or an instructor to quickly determine where the shooter is missing – making it easy to adjust and hit flying targets shot after shot.
“A new shooter now can learn how to lead a clay target or game bird almost immediately,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing, sales and strategy. “Now we’ve made it more versatile by offering the AA TrAAcker in 20 gauge, not just 12 gauge. It continues to be a great training tool for shooters, hunters, and shooting instructors, especially when youth or beginning shooters are learning every aspect of the sport.”
The AA TrAAcker’s wad is loaded with 1 1/8 oz. of shot for 12 gauge and 7/8 oz. of shot for 20 gauge like a standard AA shotshell. But the wad design includes longer, notched petals and it captures a portion of shot, which stabilizes wad spin and ensures that the wad remains in the center of the shot cloud for optimum tracking.
The AA TrAAcker load is available in orange for overcast conditions or dark backdrops and black for clear skies or light backdrops.
