Hi all,

Once more truly novice skeet shooter question... If the range rule says, "no shells over 7 1/2 shot", does that mean you can't use #9 shot, or that you can't use #6 shot?

I'm not sure if they mean nothing numerically higher than 7 1/2 shot, or if they mean nothing physically (pellet size) larger than 7 1/2 shot.

I'm inclined to think that it means physically, because I thought most clay shooting was done with 7-9 shot...

thanks

It's a restriction on shot sizes larger than 7.5. Use this pellet chart for comparison.

We had a guy show up to shoot trap one day. The shells sounded really loud. One of the guys goes over and asks what he’d was shooting. He says “9 shot”. We looked at the shell. It said “9 pellets”. Sorry bud no 00 buckshot allowed. 😝
