    I've never owned a competition gun before, but have recently gotten a Browning Citori XT Trap Gold. I would like to know, can game loads and buckshot be used with it?

    Thanks,

    Other than recoil issues with Magnum Buckshot and heavy field loads, you should have no problem. I never saw a use for a field load heavier than the Super Pigeon Load (3 1/4 X 1 1/4) for any hunting chores other than waterfowl.

    Many folks use light field loads at Trap. Cheap ammo still breaks 'em at the 16, and many folks use them at short yardage Caps, as well as Dubs.
