    Hello all,
    I am installing a new trap field lighting system and would like to know if anyone who has installed them before would know of the NEMA number beam spread that's most efficient.

    Thank you for your help,
    Pat

    At Tucson, we have 6 each metal halide 1500 watt fixtures (Hubbell) on combination fields (trap and skeet).

    The center pole has 2 each with a NEMA 3 reflector.

    The outer poles have one NEMA 3 and one NEMA 6 reflector for spread to skeet house.

    If you only shoot trap, the NEMA 3 would do just fine.

    Why is there is very little published about trap and skeet field lighting? I bought the NRA range source book CD a couple o years ago and all it had were the layouts and nothing about lighting. It seems it is catch as catch can and you are on your own to butt your head against the wall to figure out what to use and how high and lumens etc. We installed a couple of stadioum lights at out single house field at the P. F. A in Whitehouse Ohio last spring.Damn at the correct angle you can see the shot string and many times the puff of orange from a one or two pellet hit! We do have four filler lights about twenty feet high in line with station one and with station five. The big ones are in line with station three, actually between two and three and three and four. Bill. PS I will try and find out the height and rating/wattage of each of the lights and post them here in a few days. B.
