Ever have one of those days when you miss clay after clay—or dove after dove—and you just can't figure out why? Thanks to Winchester's new AA Tracker shotshells, you'll now know exactly where you missed.
Winchester has incorporated a highly visible wad into the design, which functions almost like a non-incendiary tracer. All an observer must do is watch the path of the wad to determine, for instance, whether you shot behind the bird and to what degree. Then all you have to do is adjust your lead and get back on target.
Just how easily are the wads seen? According to Winchester, the Tracker Wad helps you determine the path of your shotstring to about 30-40 yards.
Two wads will be available: orange, for cloudy days, and black, for bright days. The initial offering will be 12-gauge, 2 3/4", 1 1/8 ozs. of No. 8 shot. According to Winchester, the Tracker Wad adds only about $1 per box of additional cost.
