- Q & A
There are a few things to keep in mind when skeet shooting that can improve your scores. First, consider how you’re standing. Shotguns are pointed as opposed to aimed, so have your front leg slightly bent and your back leg straight, leaning forward somewhat at the waist. That both helps you rotate as needed at the waist and also helps you control recoil better. Learning to mount the shotgun to your shoulder in a smooth motion is also important, and something you can practice in safe conditions at home. Many experienced skeet shooters practice mounting their shotgun to their shoulder on a daily basis.
You also need the right ammunition for skeet shooting. These rounds are made for your 12 gauge shotgun. Each shell has a 1 ounce load, which is plenty of power for propelling the buckshot inside to your target without the greater felt recoil of a 1 ¼ ounce load. They’re filled with #8 buckshot, which is a popular size for skeet shooting, and each round is a 2 ¾” long. These rounds fly towards your targets at a muzzle velocity of 1200 feet per second. This ammunition is a popular light load for shattering clays.
There are 25 rounds in this single box of ammunition, so you’ll be set to shatter clays with your favorite shotgun. This ammunition is made by Winchester, a legendary American company founded in 1866, right at the height of the Old West. In fact, Winchester’s first claim to fame was a lever-action rifle that became known as The Gun That Won the West. All Winchester ammunition is made with pride in America to high standards. Whether you want to shatter clays or just get some target practice in, these shotgun shells will get you there.
