    I'm getting older and my eyes don't pick up the disc as fast they once did. I'm thinking about trying Winchester Super Sporting Clay shells. They travel at 1350 feet per second. The ammo I was using is rated at 1135 fps. Has anyone used these Winchesters? What are your thoughts?

    Your shoulder will hurt a lot more when you miss.

    We're all getting older :)

    My shoulder hurts just thinking about that payload.........

    You don't need these super fast shells for any ATA games shot at 16 yards. Handicap? Maybe but I'd only go to 1200 fps - just a fraction faster.

    I pulled my first post because I wanted to recheck the math. It was correct. The difference in lead required between a load of 7 1/2s at 1145 and 1330 on a target crossing at 45 degrees (absolute max deflection you should see at Trap) is 2.7 inches at 40 yards and 3.6 inches at 60 yards. To get this you take a 24% increase in recoil for each shot from 18.35 footpounds to 23.88 footpounds in a 8 1/2 pound gun. That is a lot of abuse to your body and brain housing group for very little gain.

    +1 short shucker. I shot a box yesterday and really didn't feel alot more recoil, although I'm not that recoil sensitive (62 yrs old). I do admitt, they are louder - for sure. Hope this helps.

    Try those new Nitro 27, 1 oz. loads. They are fast and low recoil.

    I have shot the Winchester 1 1/8 oz and 1 1/4 oz loads 1350fps in sporting clays, they beat the shit out of you and I am a middle aged guy and roughly shoot 200 to 300 rounds per week. I do my own reloading and reload a nice 1 oz reload at 1300fps using Alliant E-3 powder, Downrange neon green wad, AA hull and 7 1/2 shot. Very little recoil and a very clean burning powder and great wad that seems to leave NO build up. My friend was a Remington Nitro 1 1/8 oz man for the past 2 plus years, he has switched to this load and he is in his late 20's.
