So have several others. I too think the rule is outdated ,and american style ATA Trap remains the ONLY clay target game that has a "speed limit" . There are still lots of die hards that think souped up velocity gives you some great advantage in the game. Don't think I buy that but ,probably because of it the rule still exist . The real bug a boo in the whole thing is the fact that true velocity of a shell can ONLY be proven by a calibrated chronograph under controlled lab conditions ( something I don't think you will see at the local gun club)! I have only seen shells challenged on 3 occasions in over half a century. I one case the shooter was using reloads in hulls marked as nickle plated shot. They cut a couple of them open and found they were lead 7-1/2s . One other time they thought a guy was using illegal shells . Can't remember the exact reason but ,he was a frequent winner in shooting long range "games" and was known to favor # 6s for that . At any rate they examined and weighed the shot load and it was within legal limits. In these cases nothing was said about the powder charge. The 3rd time was at the Grand years ago. A guy left his shells in the back of his pick up and they got rained on. The paper on the boxes were falling apart. He was shooting reloads for practice and had saved the empty boxes. He then put his factory shells ( which had to be purchased from the ATA in those days) into the empty reload boxes. Somebody saw them and called a line ref. After it was determined what happened that was that. As I said, I'm not a big fan of the " speed limit" rule but ,as long as it is a rule I think everybody ought to follow it. BTW The "HOTTEST " load I shoot anymore is 1200 FPS in registered tournaments and occasionally some Remington Nitros for Annies and Protections in "games" Most times I am using 1 oz. loads at 1200 FPS or less.I've been lobbying for years, without success, to eliminate the muzzle velocity limits.
