Hi Skeet Shooters:
Shooting a 12 ga O/U w/ 20 ga tubes.
Still a rookie where shotgunning concerned so learning alot from SW forums.
Like everyone that doesn't reload, keeping an eye out for some 20 ga shells.
Found some 20 ga by Monarch (Academy's house brand). Like all ammo, price has gone up a bit higher to 9.99
But they do have them from time to time at my local store or online/pickup.
I like the no. 8 size, but wondering about the 1300 FPS.
See pix attached.
Where skeet is concerned, what effect, if any, does the 1300 FPS figure have?.
Other periodically available off the shelf 20 ga no 8 Win and Fed says 1200 FPS.
If speed is a factor, would I use them in breezier conditions?
Best to avoid for skeet and save for maybe the odd round of sport clays?
Have found other posts about Monarch but they are fairly older threads.
The Reloading Forum mentions speed of shells as part of recipes for reloading own shells, but that's pretty far down in the weeds for me to really follow along at this point.
