1290 fps for 1 1/8oz, 1325 for 1 oz, and 1350 for 7/8 oz. I doubt it would be much problem with the 7/8oz load, but the 1 1/8 or 1 oz loads at those speeds, or faster, would be uncomfortable over the course of 100 or 200 birds.
The thing that's always made me wonder with these and previous "limits" is that who's going to carry around a test barrel and appropriate chronograph to determine any violations? With a homeowners chrono and depending on barrel lengths, chokes, barrel IDs, temperatures and so on, you're not getting an absolute result anyway. If, on the other hand, the components used are listed in books as X or Y velocity, that's hardly a reliable benchmark either. My guess is that the rules are there for the incident when there is a challenge made and a thorough investigation after the fact....breakemall....Bob Dodd
Easiest way to keep it legal and legit ... make it a rule that you must purchase your all ammo from the location hosting the registered shoot and if not purchased from them you will be charged $5 or $10 to have 4 shells randomly selected from your your reloads and while 3 of those shells are shot threw a chronograph for an average speed result the 4th shell is cut open and your shot measured for verification.
Other than that it is all on the honor system and only the honor system and you must trust your fellow shooters.
Remove the speed restrictions all together and watch sore shoulder shooting begin. Even the sporting clays shooters very rarely use the fast shells. 3dram 1 oz or 1 1/8 oz is what the majority of sporting shooters use. The better shooter will always win! a faster shell doesn't make up for poor shot placement, it just compounds the problem!
Since I've never heard a delegate suggest a change in the present rules, I doubt anything is going to happen. I'm certainly not in favor of unlimited speed. Just go to "games" some night and see if you'd like to be on the same squad - at the same shoot, in fact - as some of the ammo you see and hear there.
what is " Honor " definition please. what is " integrity " definition please
