    I have a chance to buy several flats of the Fed paper Internation shells. Has anyone used any of these. They are advertised to be 1325 ( I don't plan on using them for registered) Just games

    My daughter has shot them for a while. I bought several cases from a guy in IN at $55 \ flat. Unless they have changed the rules you can shoot them in ATA due to the lighter payload. It has been a couple yrs since I read the rules.

    Shoot away great shells.

    You cannot use Federal International Loads in ATA registered shoots.
    Reason: They are copper coated.

    G. GUNS AND AMMUNITION

    Any shooter violating any of these Rules shall be disqualified from
    competition in accordance with these Rules. Any such violator shall
    be referred to the Executive Committee for possible further disciplinary
    action.

    A contestant cannot use:

    2. Loads that contain nickel or copper coated shot or tracer loads.
    However, the use of lead, steel, bismuth, or other composite nontoxic
    shot materials shall be allowed. Any gun club allowing shot
    materials described in this Rule, other than lead, shall be required
    to cover or shield all hard surfaces on trap fields which are known,
    or reasonably believed, to cause pellet ricochet with material which
    will prevent the shot pellets from rebounding and/or ricocheting.
