Skeet shooting first hit the firearm world in the early 1920’s, when it was called Clock Shooting. A grouse hunter by the name of Charles Davis built the first course, which was circular and arranged like a clock with a trap house set at the 12 o’clock position. The course changed in 1923 when it was cut in half and had a second house added at 6 o’clock, and the man behind the changes, William Foster, decided to do his best to make it a national sport. In 1926 the sport was featured in two magazines, National Sportsman and Hunting and Fishing, and along with the articles came a name-the-sport contest with a $100 prize for the winner. The winning entry was “skeet” which was taken from the Norwegian word “skye” which translates to “shoot.” Today, skeet shooting is incredibly popular.
These 12 gauge shells have a ¾ ounce load, so they produce the minimum amount possible of felt recoil while still delivering enough power to shatter clay targets. They’re loaded with #8 shot, and those pellets will certainly destroy clay; some clubs use #8 shot as their size limit, so these fit the bill just right. These are target rounds specifically meant for clay pigeon shooting. But they do have one extra feature: these are tracer rounds. You can use them as a teaching tool to correct your own or others errors while shooting after dark, or you can use them just for fun at night shoots. The chemical that makes them glow is considered environmentally safe by the EPA and also isn’t overly hot, so it won’t start fires.
You get 100 of these fantastic tracers in this box of ammo from Fiocchi. Fiocchi was founded in 1825 and takes great care in the production of their ammunition. Their headquarters are located in Lecco, Italy, but they also have an Ozark, Missouri plant for distribution in the United States. The tracer portion of these shells is made by Cyalume Technologies. In addition to being extra-safe tracers these rounds are labeled as not leaving residue in the barrel of your shotgun. Whether you want to improve your clay shooting skills or just enjoy the fun element of the glowing arc tracers provide, get your order in before someone else beats you to it.
