Tonight on American Rifleman TV: 50 Years of the Winchester AA

posted on August 12, 2015
For 50 years an incalculable quantity of the spent red hulls of Winchester’s AA shotshells have covered clays courses around the world. As you’ll see on tonight’s episode of American Rifleman TV, there have been many improvements since 1965 to the materials and methods of producing these shells, giving the brand a reputation as some of the most consistent and tightest-patterning loads in the industry. Come along as Managing Editor Joe Kurtenbach heads to East Alton, Ill., to see how these very recognizable shotshells are made and what has given them a half-century of staying power. Watch a video preview above. undefined

Later we’ll review the Steyr AUG/A3M1, and “I Have This Old Gun” is the Ruger Speed Six.
