Want something new to toss into the compost bin? All you have to do is pack your range bag with a lot of Winchester Ammunition’s new environmentally friendly shotshells—E-Tech—which utilize wads made from biopolymers certified as home-compostable.

Loaded with BioAmmo’s one-piece 4-petal shot wad, E-Tech is a great option for those who want to limit their use of plastics. Over time, these plant-based wads will degrade into natural elements. But this small gesture toward going a bit greener doesn’t mean sacrificing performance. The biopolymer wads have been extensively engineered to match the performance of traditional plastic components for reliable and effective performance on target. Check out the chart below for velocity and other specs.

Offered in 12-guage No. 7.5-lead shot and No. 6-steel shot, E-Tech shotshells are ideal for recreational shooting, competitive shooting and hunting.
