As a longstanding supporter of the Amateur Trapshooting Association, the Winchester AA/Grand American commemorative ammunition is both a collectible for the mantel and a solid fit for a round at the shooting range. This special AA ammunition features packaging the Grand American 125th anniversary badge, along with imagery celebrating the rich history of the event.

The 125th anniversary Grand American AA shotshell from Winchester is a 12-gauge, 2¾-inch, 1⅛-ounce, No. 8 target load with 1,145 f.p.s. velocity sold in 25-round boxes with the aforementioned special packaging.

Winchester will be out in force as competitive shooters and spectators from across the country journey to Sparta, Illinois, for the 2024 ATA Grand American World Trapshooting Championships, which will be held from July 31 to August 10. The event is considered the largest shooting sports competition in the world.

For those attending the event, be sure to stop by the Winchester Ammunition and White Flyer building on vendor row to check out the commemorative ATA Grand American AA ammunition, branded merchandise, meet with Team Winchester members and staff, and participate in exciting daily promotions.
