I bought a case of the Rio Classic Game 1 1/16 3 1/4 dram load to try on the Sporting Clays range,the box says they are 1250 fps.My chronoghraph say more like 1300 average,but suprisingly light in the recoil department.I shot a box at the trap club for handicap last week(24yds I usually shoot a 3 dram 1 oz.load)and they are pretty impressive,would this be a legal ATA load.Jerry

Jerry,

I'd say not, because they, the ATA, would go by the 1 1/8 oz limits. This would be 1290fps.

I've shot some of those shells before and they do work well on the sporting courses. I prefer the 8's, but the 7 1/2's work well also. These also make nice call bird shells when shooting games.

if they are factory shells, I would think ATA would go by the FPS listed on the box, not what you came up with.

. . . unless what was marked on the shells differed from the box, ec90t. That might lead to further review. I don't look at as a problem, since the same could be done with shot-size and that hasn't happened in a while.

I shoot 30 grams of 7.5 at 1175 fps with greed dot from the 27 and love them. We have so many great scores that I don't see how cheating on loads will give an edge over the legal loads that we shoot. Bruce
