Just started an Adult/Youth short trap league at WGC... I haven't shot trap in a while and my 11 year old daughter has shot trap twice. I wasn't wanting to join the league but my daughter was really pushing hard for us to do it. I shot a 23 and she shot a 6. I'll take it!! She was pumped when she was done and I was surprised how much fun we had. Then we headed to the sporties course. I got my 4th 50 of the year and she did very well with shooting a couple targets that she wanted to shoot at. She now has the bug bad! She doesn't understand why they can't be open everyday of the week! I've created a monster and I love it!!
I had heard about that turnout at Rome. That's awesome!
My report from yesterday: Doubles were 1st event. From out of nowhere, I shot the best score of my life. 96! Never missed a 1st target. My best score this year was an 89 and my average was around 85. Just watch. Next time I'll probably shoot an 83 or something. To balance things out I shot the worst score in many years in the handicap event. No idea about that either as that's the discipline I am most confident in. Next time. State shoot is around the corner, beginning July 9.
That’s awesome!!! Keep up the hard work and thank you for getting our youth hooked on the sport.

NATS here we come!
Heading up to Green Bay tomorrow for a registered shoot. Haven't touched my gun for 3 weeks for a variety of reasons. Should be interesting....
And on a side note.... Last year my sporties average with my reloads was 44.31. This year I switched to Aguila Sporting Clay HV Competition ammo and my average is currently at 47.9. Both loads performance and cost was right around the same. With me using a semi-auto this year, I am happy to not be picking up hulls!
I haven't used the calculator in quite a while but I reload because I know what I am getting when I pull the trigger.
That's what I was looking for . I am using my 20 for sporting clays , so I don't need velocity, just spread . Plus what 200 for a new Mec can buy a lot of shells .
Strange... I was just posed with the same question yesterday from one of my shooting partners. We both reload premium 12 loads for almost half of what we can buy premium 12 for. He asked if it could happen for 20 as well. What we found out was that if hulls we free, paying for powder, shot, wads, and primers.... It could be done for right around $5 a box.
Wow , complicated table . Just wondering if it's worthwhile if I can make 20s for less than 5.00 . I do load my 12s .
