    The dram equivelent is slowly disappearing as a shotshell performance indicator. Really it is a measurement from the blackpowder days and not very useful today.

    Resitered trapshooting specifies load maximums based on shot weight and velocity. I think the 3 1/4 DrEq x 1 Oz shells are within the max spec of 1 Oz @ 1,325 FpS. Most manufactures are printing the velocity on the box, check that.

    Those loads are indeed legal for Trap. Nominal velocity is 1290 FPS.
