    I use a Sporting barrel on my K-80 for ATA Dubs, and have only been able to run them with this barrel configuration.

    I have sporting barrels with flat and ramped ribs on both my K-80 and Perazzi Doubles guns.

    Joe,

    No, the sporting clays barrel won't work on trap targets. The trap targets know what kind of barrel the shot comes from and they just flat refuse to break if the shot doesn't come from a trap gun barrel.

    If you happen to shoot at trap targets with a SKEET barrel, that's even worse because the trap targets will throw the shot back at the shooter.

    And if you believe that, contact me about some oceanfront property I've got for sale in Arizona. I'll make you a great deal on it. ;)
