What are the target angles specified in the PITA Rule book?

Is there a difference between what PITA spec are Compared to ATA angle specs and the target distance in PITA?

Go to www.shootpita.com the rule book is posted for all to see.
You should find that it is the same as ATA.

"(b) Targets shall be thrown from an automatic angling trap that has been set in the equivalence of the #2 target spread hole of a Winchester model #1524 hand set trap. All automatic angling traps not having the ability to be placed in the #2 target spread hole will be set to throw targets at angles of, no less than a straight away from firing point #1½ to the right and firing point #4½ to the left, or more than a straight away from firing point #1 to the right and firing point #5 to the left of the imaginary line through firing point #3 and the trap."

And for your reading pleasure, their shell charge and velocity rules:

"(c) Any load with a maximum velocity greater than 1290 FPS (Feet per Second) with a maximum shot charge of 1 1/8 ounces (31.89 grams). For 1 ounce loads (28.30 grams) the maximum velocity is 1325 FPS; for 7/8 ounce loads (24.80 grams) the maximum velocity is 1350 FPS as measured in any individual shot shell. In addition, no load containing more than 1 1/8 ounces (31.89 grams, tolerance +3%) and shot larger than number 7 ½ chilled shot can be used. The above standards replace the old standard of no load heavier than 3 drams equivalent of black powder."

Looks like both exactly mirror ATAs
