    Never done it. I'm working on 300. I've gone 200 once in my life. 100 maybe ten times (registered) and maybe 25 times (unregistered) since 1981.

    I used a Perazzi DB-81,Imp Mod choke ,ported,long cones,mercury recoil in stock, and refined trigger[3lb.....no creep]. The shell was a Gun Club hull, 1 1/8oz of 8 1/2 West Coast shot,windjammer white joined-peddal wad, clays powder, and win 209 primer. Smooth as glass and somewhat "forgiving".This all helped, but the bottom line is how well it is all used.

    Great shooting so I see you ran 625 straight so im sure some of these was in the shoot off targets if not then either way still great shooting because I have only ran 375 straight one time before.

    I recall seeing an advertising poster for Alcan shotshells
    featuring J. Hughes and congratulating him for over 700? straight
    from the 16. His son Jim is still active in trapshooting, and if he is
    on here, maybe he can provide more detail.(I saw the poster at Jim's house)
