A few tips for skeet and trap shooting: first, remember that your shotgun is a point-and-shoot weapon, in fact, trap and skeet shotguns just have a little bead at the end of their barrels. Also, shoot with both eyes open, because it makes it a lot easier to track the flying discs. If you’re cross-eye dominant you may have no choice but to squint one eye, but it’s also worth trying to shoot with the other hand; if you’re cross-dominant and right-handed, try shooting with your left hand. You might be surprised how well it works. Finally, practice mounting the shotgun to your shoulder; a smooth transition and quick follow-through will result in a better score.
You also need the right ammunition when you’re shooting skeet or trap. These 12 gauge rounds have a 1 1/8 ounce load which means they provide plenty of power; a 1 1/8 ounce load is nice for its increased force over a flat 1 ounce load as well as the fact that it has less felt recoil than the larger a 1 ¼ ounce loads. These rounds are 2 ¾” long and filled with #9 lead shot which is a great size for shattering clays. Each round leaves the barrel of your shotgun with a muzzle velocity of 1145 feet per second. This is Remington’s Gun Club Target Load and is designed with skeet and trap shooting in mind.
