Thats right, out of 4 boxes of Winchester AA's 20g , i had two shells that didn't work. All the others found their targets tonight in my skeet league.

I shot a 75 strait and on the last round going for a 100 i dropped two targets, both on High house 4.

It felt good tonight, hadn't shot that well in a while. The clays looked like trash can lids to me tonight.

My best is a 99/100 also shooting a 75 strait and missing one high 5.

just felt like braggin.
.....you've got to ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?

AA's are usually the best you can buy for trap and skeet. I went to the sporting clays range last weekend and 75/100 was my score. Those targets being launched on edge at 30 yards got me as well as a couple high overhead 90mm targets launched from a telephone truck bucket about 35 yards above your head and going away. My reloads worked flawlessly.

I bought a case of Winchester supreme steel shot. Out of the 10 boxes, at least 50 shells were bad. They were not full of shot, most of them had about 1oz. of shot...as they were supposed to have 1-1/4oz. I was quit pissed off...since they were supposed to be "higher grade" shells. I called and talked to someone at Winchester and they told me to send them back, they sent me 2 replacement boxes and aww be dammned if a few of them were bad too. I called em back and informed them that I am never buying their so called "product" again. Kent has all my business from now on (not to mention they are cheaper) :thumbsup:

The remington sheels did the same to me when I was wood duck hunting. They were the Hevi shot shells and they cost 22.00 for a box of 10. I called Remington and all they did was send me a hat. Never again will I buy Remington

A had a bad run of Winchester primers one time with a dud in every 100, but never bad factory loads, but then I don't shoot factory stuff unless I need new 28 or 410 hulls.

You may want to make sure your firing pin is not damaged or gummed up. You can have the occasional miss fire from firing pin issues. Make sure the dent is deep and try shooting it again or better yet have someone try it in another gun. If you’re sure it is the load then I would let Winchester know. The AA is about as good as they get and Winchester prides them selves on this load and it’s reputation in the competition world so I am sure they will make it right.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!
