Really, the biggest investment you have to make in your trap and sporting clays game is your ammunition. For that you can always count on the good folks at Winchester. This 12 Gauge shell from the American icon’s AA Light Target label is optimal for pulverizing clays, as it is loaded with 1 1/8 ounces of #7.5 lead shot. Those pellets are small enough to fit hundreds to a shell to give you a dense spread downrange, and the hard lead Winchester makes them out of resists getting squashed down to harm accuracy. Winchester also carefully controls their shot size, adhering to a strict standard for what constitutes #7.5!
This shell’s one-piece AA wad fully cups the shot to keep it from dirtying up your barrel, and it collapses in the middle to take a considerable amount of sting out of recoil. It continues to cup its shot upon exiting the barrel as well, keeping it packed tight together for more effective patterns far downrange. Winchester polishes off each AA Light Target shell with a dependable primer and hull, and their powder burns quick and clean to reduce maintenance.
