If your idea of happiness is a growing pile of shattered clay, this is the ammunition for you. Winchester Super Target was designed with sport shooting in mind. These are steel shot; steel is a less toxic option than the traditional lead and is also harder and lighter than lead. Because steel is 3 times harder than lead, it doesn’t deform on impact like lead does. Upon impact, steel shot retains its round shape and develops a 50% to 60% shorter and 60% to 70% narrower shot string than lead shot. Basically, steel shot gives you a more precise, compact pattern. If you’ve never used steel shot before it’s a good idea to practice with it so you can get used to the variations.
Winchester was founded in 1866 by Oliver Winchester. For more than 150 years the company has been in the business of meeting the needs of shooters everywhere; generations of shooters have turned to Winchester when they need to feed their guns. Winchester uses clean-burning propellants and high-quality primers to ensure your ammunition ignites and performs reliably. All firearms and ammunition are made in the U.S.A. and must meet stringent standards. When you’re looking for ammunition, why not turn to the company known for its role in shaping the firearms of the Old West?
These 12 gauge shells are the standard 2 ¾” in length and have a 1 1/8 ounce load. Although 1 1/8 ounce can cause greater recoil, you’ll find the felt recoil is reduced by Winchester’s use of a hinged wad. These shells are filled with #7 steel shot and have a muzzle velocity of 1200 feet per second. It’s great for sport shooting and hunting, in fact, because it’s non-toxic steel, you can use it for waterfowl hunting. If you live in an area where non-toxic loads are also required for upland bird hunting, these shells will work. You get 250 shells in this box, so you’ll have enough for a great weekend of hunting with your friends.
