Winchester E-Tech, an Innovative, Environmentally Friendly Shotshell

Wednesday, January 24, 2024

EAST ALTON, IL — Winchester Ammunition has changed the ammunition landscape through innovation time and time again. Whether it be John Olin’s Super-X that set the standard with progressive-burning powder or the iconic AA® shotshell with its reloadable, plastic hull and unique plastic wad. Winchester has put itself on the cutting edge of innovation once again with E-Tech™, an environmentally friendly shotshell that utilizes wads made from biopolymers that are certified as home compostable.

E-Tech, loaded with BioAmmo’s one-piece 4-petal shot wad, is a great option for those that want to limit their use of plastics. Over time, these plant-based wads will degrade into natural elements without sacrificing performance. The biopolymer wads have been extensively engineered to match the performance of traditional plastic components for reliable and effective performance on target.

E-Tech ammunition comes in two versions: 12 gauge, 2 ¾ inches, 1200 fps velocity, 1⅛ oz. load of #7.5 shot; or 12 gauge, 2 ¾ inches, 1325 fps velocity, 1 oz. load of #6 steel shot.
