Winchester Tracer Load


I am researching the Winchester 12 Gauge Mark 5 #8 tracer load. I know it was introduced into production in 1965 but that is about all I can find out. ATF was of no help, all my contacts have retired (including me) and the experts of Winchester just knew it had not been made for some time. I have the history of the load,what I was hoping to find out is when Winchester stopped making it, and if possible (probably not) how many were made. Probably a lot to ask but if anyone out there has any info I would deeply appreciate it. This is research for a story where this load was used in a homicide, it actually was. Thanking all in advance.



Nobody has noticed your question because this board is usually for practice, faqs, and such. The administrator usually will move it for you but I think he naps most of the day. Move it over to the General Discussion board and you’ll get a lot of responses.
