Winchester’s AA shotshells are one of the most popular target loads on the market and the choice of USA Shooting’s Shotgun Team. Now, Winchester has added a 20-gauge Featherlite load to the brand.

“Our new, 20-gauge Featherlite AA shotshells are high-performance, low-recoil training loads for sporting clays, trap and skeet,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing and sales. “This new Featherlite load was designed to address recoil, which is a concern among many sport shooters.”

AA shotshells are designed for the range with Winchester’s High-Strength Hull, one-piece wads, clean burning powder and hard shot for consistent patterns. The 20-gauge Featherlite shells are loaded for 2 3/4 inch with 7-8 ounces of No. 8 shot for a velocity of 980 fps.
