    See a lot of white Dust & NO Pcs.
    What Load is best?
    Seams like you need a lot of pellet hits.
    Thanks Pete

    Put the load in the middle of any target-including Bios- and the end result is a smoked target. The difference is purely mental and single pellet hits on pitch targets only yields harder to see black dust. Nice, tight chokes-at least imp.mod.- are the answer for all Trap targets!!

    The heaviest load you can find. All loads work but the heavier the better.

    I shoot and 1 1/8 for ata trap.
    For bunker i use the normal 7/8's

    OK if you center the target any load will break it.
    If you only catch the fringe of the pattern what size shot is best?
    7 1/2 or some thing smaller?
    Thanks Pete

    It seems to me the recipe for BIO targets have changed somewhat in recent times. I'm still using the same gun/load with hard shot and don't see nearly as many totally dusted clays as I did a few years back.

    For the old BIOs, I loaded some 7-1/2s soft chilled lead at 2-3/4 dr. velocities and that worked best for me. Hardly any flew off leaving a trail of dust behind like hard shot did. I didn't care much for those BIOs then and still don't. Hap

    Hey Jim
    That is not a legal load at our club.
    But I bet it would do the job.
    Max is 7 1/2
    Thanks Pete
