    .

    What are the dimensions (diameter and height) of a regulation ATA trap clay target ?

    Given regulation flight, what are the minimum and maximum square inches of target area that would be exposed for an incoming shotgun pellet ?

    Given a perfectly centered shot and a perfectly patterning shotgun with an ATA approved shell, what is the probability that the clay target will not break ?

    The probability that it will break ?

    If the gun is aimed correctly the target will break 100% of the time.

    In answer to your first question:

    ...for American competitions they must weigh approximately 100 g (3.5 oz) and be of 108 mm (4.3 in) overall diameter and 28.0–29.0 mm (1.10–1.14 in) in height.

    The rest is up to you.
