What is the best trap load for the local amateur trap club shooters ?
These shooters shoot once per week, two relays of 25 rounds each, all from 16 yard line, using a broad range of 12 gauge general hunting shotguns. Out of 25 rounds, their typical scores are in the 15 to 20 hit range. Broad range of recoil tolerance from senior citizens with shoulder surgeries to young teenagers. They shoot from eight to twenty times per year.
1 ounce or 1-1/8 ounce ?
7-1/2, 8, or 9 shot ?
Need to use the same load for all.
If asked for a recommendation from a beginning shooter, what choke should be recommended ?
Improved cylinder ?
