Skeet to Im. Cylinder 1st shot IM to full second shot. I personally like 1 oz of # 9 @ 1225 1st shot, 1 1/8 oz # 8 @ 1200 second shot, but then I am not a high dbles shooter, only average 92, so take it from there, YMMV. Scott
Phil, got to the Silver Dollar and purchase a flat or two of the 7/8 oz Low recoil Noble Sport shell that they stock. Any 11/8 second shot will work. Low recoil first shot will allow you to say in the gun for the second shot. Choke is pretty much a what your happy with. I like imp cyl and light full. I have a 3200 that is mod/full. Crushes em. As satated above get the first shot quick as you can, you know where it is each time, and the get to second shot BEFORE it starts to fall. Practice is the key. Jake
All of the recipes above will work fine. There is no reason to beat yourself up with heavy loads.
Imp cyl with 7/8 or 1 oz 8.5's
Imp mod with 1-1/8 oz light 8's
Key to good doubles is quick on the first one so you can shoot your second similar to your normal shot.
First, position you feet for the second shot.
As stated, you know where the first bird is going to be; concentrate on every bird shot in front of you and focus on that spot in the background once you mount the gun, open your gaze to see the birds. Soon as you call the first bird should be right in your sight.
If your feet are positioned correct, you can just let your body naturally release right to the second bird. You really don't have to "swing" the gun hard at all.
It will come quick with regular practice. Once they start breaking it's a ton of fun!
.020" x .030", if you're using the Beretta factory chokes that'd be "Mod" x "IM". For shells I usually use my reloads 1oz #8 @ 1180fps x 1 1/8oz #8 @ 1200fps, these are also my singles x handicap loads, keep it simple. I've also used "light 8's" for both shots and they worked OK but were a third load to have to haul around.
Choked .013 Botom and .023 top, Shoots 2-3/4 Dram 1-1/8 8s for both shots
Sorry for the shakey video... I was having trouble getting on the Second bird
before she would break it..HA HA.
Saw a camera Crew from the local news station come out one day and Video tape her shooting... the Cameraman was resting the big ass Camera on her shoulder while she shot (so he could get good vids) She never missed a single target that day either.. amazing !! Now If I could just shoot them that way.. I really would live up to my name HA HA!!
