Winchester announced shipments of its AA Diamond Grade shotshell target load are now on their way to retailers and sporting clay courses.

Winchester’s AA shotshell loads sport a high-strength reloadable hull, patented AA wad, and hard shot. The Diamond Grade variant ups the ante with more round pellets with “higher energy retention downrange for dense, consistent, hard-hitting patterns.”

Winchester says AA Diamond Grade features precision sorted, copper-plated, 8% antimony — a hardening alloy– that is four times more than regular target loads.

Winchester AA Diamond Grade is a shotshell for sport shooters who want the very best ammunition when it matters most,” Matt Campbell, vice president sales and marketing, said in a news release. “We want to develop new products that meet the needs of our customers… AA Diamond Grade includes key features and benefits that sporting clays shooters and target shooters will understand and appreciate.”

Shipping 25 shells to a box, the 12-gauge AA Diamond Grade shotshell features four models with varying bullet weights and muzzle velocities. Pricing starts around $10.
