How To Watch Your Shot String!

Traacker-wad-020613Shotgun shooters would greatly benefit if they could see where their shot string goes when they let one fly, but a fired 12-gauge shotgun shell unleashes a column of shot from a shotgun barrel at about 1,200 feet per second, and that’s too fast for the human eye to see. Winchester is changing all that and making it possible to track the flight of the shot string with the introduction of the Winchester AA TrAAcker.

The AA TrAAcker is the first shotgun shell that features a weighted wad that actually tracks with the shot string and allows the shooter or an instructor to quickly determine where the shooter is missing. With that known, it makes it easy to adjust and nail flying targets shot after shot.

“A new shooter now can learn how to lead a clay target or game bird almost immediately–that’s the results you get with AA TrAAcker,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing, sales and strategy. “The new AA TrAAcker is a great training tool for shooters, hunters and shooting instructors.”

The secret of AA TrAAcker is in the innovative wad design that 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 the shot pattern for optimum tracking. The wad tracks a full, one ounce of shot down range for highly effective performance on clay targets and fast flying game. The AA TrAAcker load is available in two highly visible colors: orange, for overcast conditions or dark backdrops, and black for clear skies or light backdrops.
