I searched all over town for some 20ga shells. I found a flat of Fiocchis that were only 1075 fps. Beggars can't be choosers, they are far from ideal ,but will I notice on the skeet field?

Your shoulder will notice unless you have a really heavy 20 ga. Might shoot tighter patterns too.

Walmart is selling 8 shot 20 gauge. I check every morning.

I was home to my hometown in PA last week, and went to DICK's and WalMart, both had nothing but 28 ga shells, at about $16 a box. DICK's had Aguilla, and WalMart had TopGun.

Shoot em' up and enjoy yourself! Don't even give the fps a thought. (Easier said than done!).

I was pretty heavy into informal Vintage Skeet tournaments for a while a few years back. Also, at that time, besides hunting, skeet was the only discipline I shot, league, fun, and vintage. Now, I only shoot sporting, with modified skeet as practice.

I happened to win a flat of RST Vintage shells that were about the speed of yours. I can't recall exactly, but they might have even been a bit slower.

I shot them up and never noticed a bit of difference in my scores or quality of the hits. If they were all I could obtain, or had on hand, I'd use them even in an NSSA shoot and never give it a thought.

Have fun!

The only way you'll notice is if you let it get in your head.

Forget the fps and shoot 'em.
