It was 1920 when grouse hunter Charles Davis first came up with a sport he named Clock Shooting. His course was a circle with a 25-yard radius that was marked much like the face of a clock, hence its name. On that first course a trap was set at the 12 o’clock position, and it became incredibly, instantly popular. The sport shooters were forced to stop when a chicken farm was opened up next door to their course – but they didn’t quit, they simply relocated. A new course evolved in 1923 that included another trap at 6 o’clock and cut the course in half, and in 1926 the sport was introduced in National Sportsman and Hunting and Fishing magazines, along with a prize for a new name. The prize-winning name was skeet-shooting, and today it’s become popular all over the country.
If you’re a skeet shooter, you’re probably always looking for ways to improve your score; this ammunition just might be the key to improving in a big way. These 12 gauge rounds have a ¾ ounce load and are full of #8 shot; this round has sufficient power to shatter clay targets without any problem. What makes this ammunition unique is that they’re tracer rounds, so you can keep an eye on the trajectory and correct mistakes accordingly. Or you can use them at a night event just for the fun factor. The technology behind these tracers is considered environmentally safe by the EPA and is classified as a non-pyrotechnic, so it won’t cause fires. Each shell moves at a muzzle velocity of 1300 feet per second.
There are 10 shells in this box of Fiocchi ammunition, which is really just enough to get you hooked on these tracers. They work as great teaching tools both for yourself and others and are also flat-out fun. These are target loads designed specifically for sport shooting. Fiocchi was founded in 1876 and has spent almost 140 years honing their manufacturing process, and these shells are a great example of their quality and innovation. Fiocchi’s main plant is located in Lecco, Italy, just as it always has been, but they also have a plant in Ozark, Missouri, for distribution in the United States. Don’t rely on guesswork to improve your aim while skeet shooting, order a bunch of these tracers and see it all for yourself. Feed your gun the fun way.
