Things must be different where you are, I have seen tournaments specify factory ammo only and have found on the sub gauge courses once fired hulls of 20 gauge 1oz. It is easy to cheat at sporting clays if you want to, as no one has ever checked my shells and I have never seen any one checked either. I have also found once fired hulls with 6's on the hull that is clearly cheating and no excuse for it. Just stating the facts of what I have found, not complaining.UltraMag said:I've hardly ever seen shoots that specify factory ammo.
Even most all state shoots allow reloads.
It would be really hard to cheat with a reload at spoting clays when most all targets can be broken with 1 to 1 1/8oz of 7 1/2's just fine, anymore is probably a detriment,and hurts the shooter more than the target.
It may be a liability issue as well, where larger shot than 7 1/2 (which is banned in all SC tournaments) could be a safety issue.
