Remington Nitro Trap loads are 3 dram equivalent.There was a league shoot at a local trap club, one of the shooters in a team was accused of shooting factory nitro shells from the 16 yard line in doubles for his second shot, this club does not allow any thing more than 3 dram loads from the 16 because of tarps being damaged, a couple hours later that team was contacted by phone and said they had to give up 50 targets for a penalty, I think this was handled wrong, how can they prove it was that persons shell that was picked up off the ground with so many others, and who is to say it wasn't a reload, your thoughts
Don’t know if there is a Nitro Sporting Clays but a 3 dram trap load of 1-1/8 oz shot is limited to 1290 fps velocity and I think Nitros come in at 1235 fps, well under the SMMAI spec, 3 dram 1200-1290 FPS Max.
What is the club’s wording of their rules? Is it “3dram, 1200fps, or trap loads.” If “3 dram“ or “trap loads,” Nitros trap would be legal. If 1200 FPS is posted, then rule is what it is, Nitros could not be used.
