Browning Wicked Wing Waterfowl Ammunition Now Shipping

posted on October 28, 2019
As waterfowl seasons have begun to open across the country, Browning Ammunition is offering hunters another ammunition option for their excursions afield—the company's Wicked Wing steel waterfowl shotshell is now shipping.

Browning Wicked Wing shotshells are currently available in the following configurations:
