Winchester Ammunition Adds To Super-Target Family
Clay target shooters will have a new shotgun shell to try in 2009. Winchester® Ammunition is adding a 12-gauge, 2¾-inch, 1-ounce load to the Super-Target line. This shotshell is designed to give outstanding clay-busting performance in sporting clays, trap and skeet-at a highly competitive, value price.

Winchester has recognized a shift in customer demand from the 1 1/8 oz. to lighter 1 oz. loads", said Brad Criner, Winchester Ammunition's Shotshell Product Manager. "Our new product offering is a light load with consistent patters and very little recoil."

The new Super-Target load features:

* 12 ga., 2¾ in. and 1 oz.
* Shot sizes: 7.5, 8 and 9
* 1,180 Feet Per Second
* 25 rounds per box
* Symbol: TRGTL12
