    sean,

    the teams all have shell sponsors.

    the american team is sponsored by winchester.

    before shooting commences the referee will take a shell from each shooter for testing to ensure the shells conform to the equipment standards.

    I've heard that a lot of competitors shoot B&P shells. Anyone know if it's true? john

    I know what Kim Rhoade will be shooting, 24 gram loads from Winchester. Too bad Winchester doesn't cover her whole practice ammo though. Much of that she pays for herself.

    Ahmed Almaktoum of the UAE with the ultra high rib Beretta used Kemens. Good shell.

    The porting on the lower barrel is very extended, and it appears he is using Angleport Chokes (good choice).

    Ahmed used RC4's. THE best shell when it comes to international trap. If you could get them to import to the USA, they'd be astronomically priced.


    The Beijing range opened for practice on July 27th. The only shell available after August 1st was Fiocchi's International load. The majority of your major shooting countries ship their shell of choice over. All of the USA competitors used Winchester's International loads.


    Going through the pictures:


    Red Hull = Winchester


    Black Hull = RC


    White Hull = Fiocchi


    There's a picture of a box of spent hulls in this photo gallery:

    For some reason RC will not allow shells to be imported into this country. Don't understand why but people have tried and they will not sell to anybody who intends to import into this country.
