Shooting at a moving target with a shotgun has never been considered the easiest thing a hunter does. Whether you're eying up some passing waterfowl or getting ready to bust some clays with your friends, you're going to have days where you miss. But where did you miss? High, low, behind? Now, with its latest release, Winchester is giving shooters a chance to find the answer.
The company's new AA TrAAcker is a non-pyrotechnic shotshell that's loaded with a plastic colored wad that tracks in the shot cloud, making it visible. Whether you're helping train a shooter, or you are the shooter, AA TrAAcker will help track leads on clay targets or crossing birds.
The AA TrAAcker, initially offered in 12 gauge No. 7s,will be available in multiple color wads for varying light conditions. The black colored wad is optimum for clear skies, and the blaze orange colored wad is ideal for overcast, dark backdrop conditions. The innovative wad design includes longer, notched petals, and captures 1/8 ounce of shot—which stabilizes wad spin and ensures that the wad remains in the center of hte shot cloud for optimum tracking.
