Watching some videos over the holiday, and seeing a push in many countries for steel, even in a target arena.

Does anybody have experience with light, fast skeet loads in steel (and possibly degradable wads?) Obviously the shot won't be #9, but ISSF mandates 24g.

6 or 7 steel will easily break any skeet target. If I was somewhere that required steel for clays, I'd buy up cases of the CTPS wads on sale at BPI for $50/4,000 case. They need to be trimmed to work in 2-3/4" hulls but they are a great value in steel rated wads.

Alternatively the MG42/TUWGL12/STS wads work well for steel target loads without the need to trim.

yes. The NL banned lead about 20 years ago. My buddy Jan Cor shot in Athens in the O games. His best result in a world cup was in Acapulco where he made the final with 122 in the comp with 24 in the final where he took 5th. That was shooting lead. Then, he shot a 123 in the Dutch national championships using steel a year later, thus proving that steel shot is not a handicap when shooting Olympic skeet.

we would shoot 24 grams of #7 or 7.5 steel shot. No problems shooting it in a fixed choke gun, even a Belgian browning. Not so for trap.

What is interesting is that winchester now makes 24 g of steel shot in #9. I didn’t think that steel shot that small had enough mass to break targets at 20 yards or so but maybe they are using a heavier steel.
