    With all the run on ammo lately I’ve gotten back into Skeet shooting more aggressively. Birdshot is plenty.

    been sitting on the Skeet range the past 3 weeks. Slowly upping my average.

    I’m shooting about 20/25 clays per game.

    had a couple of 23/25.

    hoping to hit that 25/25 before the summer is out.

    shooting a Beretta 687 silver pigeon III 12g. Shooting #9 light loads 1145fps 1 1/8oz loads.

    #9s need to feel wanted too.

    I usually use these #7 on the range.. Aprox $10 per box
    A few buckshots and slugs now and then, just to remember how they feel. ( they are very expensive here )

    WM,

    Better to use the inexpensive 1-1/8-oz ammo than dedicated skeet loads don't you think?
