I just got back from shooting trap at our local trap range. Wow!!! what a blast I took my CVA SXS 12 that I got from the forumn. when I walked in and opened my case I had several men come look they were very intrigued. alls I had was #6 shot according to my measure I started out with a light load 1 ounce of shot equal amount of powder. at first I started with over powder card .5 cusion wad then over shot card. I was using pyrodex RS recoil was mild out of the 8 lb double not having much experience with a shotgun as for 35 years I just bowhunted, a couple guys followed me around giving me pointers. I managed to hit some I did better on the longer shots as my bore is borderline full/extra full. I let a few guys shoot it and they was knocking them down!!! the next round I had bought some RMC/oxyoke 12 gauge wads I loaded 2 0ver the powder and a over the shot card. I did a lot better this round still under 50% hit rate but I believe I can get better. ill be heading back in a few days ill take my go pro and attempt some video. I know one thing I love having 2 quick shots it the need be.
