Winchester AA Shells Soon to be Available in Commemorative Wooden Box

While I initially thought “gimmick” the logical portion of my brain housing group immediately jumped to the practical implications of having a wooden storage box. I might (finally) have something to store those awkward hulls in efficiently.

Sadly, the box will only be available for a single loading, the size 8, 1 & 1/8 ounce, 1145 FPS loading. For most, this is good news but I like the heavy loads for competition. Regardless, its a solid step in the right direction and a solid improvement over cardboard. download

    wheres the best place to buy them?

    No, your first instinct was right.

    What they need is a box that can store 25 used hulls as well. Otherwise you have to manage a box and a bag until you reload them. And the worst is when you forget a bag at the range, and toss them all over your car floor, then hope not to get pulled over on the way home.

    best place to get nice wooden boxes for storing tools, parts, empty shotgun hulls, etc:

    wine shop dumpsters.

    or just go in, buy a bottle, & ask if they have any extra wooden cases.

    they look like this:
