1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Don't bother. Just get a regular 1 1/8oz bar, it will still need to be opened to throw an actual 1 1/8oz charge.

    skeet_man,

    The 1 1/8 oz. Special Skeet bar should throw about 1 1/16 oz. with hard #8 shot per MEC.

    I'll bet a regular 1 1/8oz bar would be damn close to 1 1/16oz w/ #8, if not a little under. They (any MEC bar I've ever used) are usually at least 1/16 under what they are marked using #9 shot, and would be more so with larger shot. I've NEVER run across a MEC bar that didn't have to be opened significantly to throw the correct amount of #9 shot.
