    Are 24gm

    The 'new' ATA specs, 3dr, 1200, Dr. Longshot, ±90fps, 1290-1340fps ... have my pea-brain spinning.

    Are dedicated, labeled 'International' loads, like the Federal N119 & N118 and the Win AANL127 legal for ATA events? I have some OLD N119 and they are nickle-plated, but I don't think the new ones are, nor are the new Winchesters.

    Plated shot, either Ni or Cu, is not legal, yes?

    Curious.

    What weight of shot? For a 1oz load, yes. For 1&1/8 don't think so.

    Plated shot is not allowed so some of the loads mentioned are not legal.

    I'm not sure that either Federal or Winchester are using plated shot any more, but the advertised velocities are 1325-1350fps for 24gm (7/8oz).

    So the question is......

    7/8th of an ounce at 1325-1350fps

    Is this legal, at an ATA shoot?

    Big AZ Al, Yes. Shells 7/8 and lighter can go 1350 fps.

    Bob, remember that Dr. Longshot wrote that, and so it is wrong. And he knew it was wrong when he wrote it.But then, that's Gary, isn't it?

    But Neil, you have to admit his consistency inspires awe.

    Non-plated <i>labeled</i> 'International' bullets are legal is what I thought, but ... I got ... distracted by reading.

    Bob,

    Plated shot isn't allowed by the ATA, as Neil stated. They are allowed in registered NSCA events.

    Has anybody ever had their ammo checked by the ATA or shoot management? HMB

    I suspect if some D-class potshooter from back-of nowhere was putting up possibles at a big meet, and was shooting bullets labeled 'International' ...

    ss, I cut (what was supposed to be) a Win AANL127 factory-roll and the shot was not plated.

    I have a few cases of old N119s and they are nickle-plated, but a friend has some new, current manufacture #8½ and says they are not.

    Dunno.
