    I bought some Winchester Light Target AA,s at a very good price . I can,t find anything as to the speed of the shell . They are 1.1/8-7.1/2-2.3/4dr. I would think speed would be around 1145 ??

    Big M,

    I thought that in 1 ounce loads in 12 gauge, the 2 3/4 Dram velocity was about 1185 fps and the 3 Dram velocity was about 1210 fps.
