I posed this same question on another forum & someone said he thought they are made by Winchester to browning's specs. I'm ckecking on them because a local gun shop have flats of dove & clay for $59.00 per flat

Winchester firearms and Browning firearms are the same company, now owned by FN in Belgium; however, Winchester ammunition is Olin Chemical

The 12ga and 20ga hulls that I have seen are a dead ringer for AA-HS hulls.

I might try a case of 20 gauge. i'd prefer 7.5 shot over 8 shot though. for 12 gauge the .22 per round AA's are hard to beat.

Browning Shells

I'm pretty sure the Browning shells are made by Federal. Compare the addresses on the boxes and I believe it's the same.

when my local store restocks i'll try a box of 20 gauge & let y'all know how they did. if they perform for me i'll buy a flat.
I just rejoined the Arnold gun club so I now have access to a pattern range, 5 stand, skeet, & trap setups.

Any company will run you batch of shells any color with your name on them for a price. I believe the Brownings are just repackaged Winchesters.
