+1parshal said:Most sporting clays, trap and skeet courses don't allow shot larger than 7.5.
The two kinds of people who shoot large shot and 3" mags are either newbies who don't know any better or hacks who can't shoot and think they can make it up with more power.
Clays are pretty fragile. One ounce of #8 will break them easily if you can shoot.
If you can't shoot, no amount of shot will break them. :wink:
