This means no shot physically over 7 1/2 shot. You can use 7 1/2 to 9 shot but not 7 or larger.---AFG
So you mean nothing "Under" 7½!This means no shot physically over 7 1/2 shot. You can use 7 1/2 to 9 shot but not 7 or larger.---AFG
In English, it would be correct to say “nothing over” for size designations where smaller numbers mean larger size.
Would agree that this sign is poorly worded, since the primary goal is safety it should be clearer for even novice shooters. "No shot size larger than 7 1/2" would be a better option in my opinion.
It's a restriction on shot sizes larger than 7.5. Use this pellet chart for comparison.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...
