    Any one have any experience, good or bad, with Noblesport trap loads?

    Specificly, 2-3/4 DR. 1-1/8 oz #8's. My kids usually only shoot 16 yard singles.

    We use them on our High School Trap team all the time. I have also shot them on occasion. I haven't found anything at all wrong with them. The girls on our team love the Low Recoil loads. I have shot that exact load you named. Good shells.

    These are the low recoil loads we use with some of the recoil sensative shooters

    For 16 yard definitely the one ounce 1200 fps low recoil shell. It patterns great and crushes targets. I shot them for several years. I wish I could get some more.

    These are great loads for the $$$. They are also the best reload able hull of the Eurotrash brands. Wish I could bet some of their wads but they are no longer imported.

    Very good ammo. I used a bunch of the subgauge Nobel Sport when I was shooting skeet and it performed very well and loaded good. The LR1 load duplicates my favorite do it all load and if I had access to bunches of it at a reasonable price I could almost be persuaded to quit reloading (almost).

    I got a couple flats of the 7/8 oz 1200 fps and really like them at 16's- smokes targets with tiny recoil- I need to get some more or duplicate the load.

    Great shell for the money.

    Reloads just fine with Windjammer wads as well.

    Zanders in Sparta, IL is a distributor.

    They are a great shell for the money; however, they tend to stick in some high end single barrel trap guns. Also, they have a base wad just like Winchester shells. I would not reload them if I shot a pump or auto-loader.

    Noble Sport is the only import to offer reloading data for their hulls. The only problem is that no one brings the wads in. loaded 1000's of them with their TG 24 wad. great load but can't get the wads anymore.

    I have had a few stick in my Ljutic- Not as bad as Rio's but had one stuck last night- Average about 1 per 100.

    Great shell! With typical European steel base that sticks in some guns!

    A clean burning shell. Works great in a 1100.
