Next year I will be shooting compition skeet and sporting clays and want to know what to expect.
  • Will mostly everyone be getting 25 strait or will there be some 16s and 17s for skeet?

    For sporting clays will there be some 13-20s or mostly 25s.
Info will be helpful thanks :) .

In skeet it depends on the class you are in as to what the average scores are but even in the lowest class a 16-17 wont be competative. As to the whole event, a 25 is what is expected to win as long as you can follow it with 3 more. Skeet is a game of 100s as far as the gun champ and the higher classes go. In sporting clays the scpres all depend on how tough the course is.

In sporting, you will start in "D" class if you have never registered targets with another organization (ATA, NSSA, etc). If you have, you will start in "B" or one class higher than the highest class attained in the other organization, whichever is higher.

I think you're referring to 5-Stand when you ask about 25s. A sporting competition is usually 100 rounds, with 200 and 300 round multi-day events in some cases (state shoot, NTWF, QU, etc). You can't really base your anticipated scores for real sporting on your five stand scores. D class is usually won by a score in the upper 70s for a 100 bird shoot. The HOA will usually be in the mid 90s. Rarely will you get a perfect 100 score on a sporting clays course. Even Jon Kruger misses one now and then. :)
