So in reading the rule for ammunition, it seems that the velocity restrictions for slugs would rule out using Remington Slugger (1560fps) and Freedom Munitions slugs (1550fps). These are 2 very popular slugs which both shoot accurately and function for me. Any chance this rule could be relaxed to allow these slugs?

We have evaluated and determined that we will stick with the posted ammo specs. We apologize if this is inconvenient. We need to preserve our large steel targets.

So will this be done by chronograph or what is posted on the box of ammo (factory specs)?

In looking at the various slug makers there are many slugs that are over the FPS limits per the rules for this shoot. If you could send out an email to all competitors so no one is surprised by this I know it would be appreciated. Not everyone may read the rules and follow this forum. Thanks.

Trying not to get to far into the weeds. I would hope everyone will have their boxes available for factory specs (and their ammo match the box). When it comes down to it, we will depend on everyone to do the right thing. I think most of the shooters I have been squadded with over the years will follow the rules. If the RO sees some welts in the steel we will probably take a look at the ammo and boxes.

We might be able to find some thicker steel targets, but we are 4 weeks out and we wanted everyone to have enough time to order slugs if needed.

Have you ever had issues with the "fallen clay doesnt count as a hit" rule?

Im also curious how the "if a target is not set, shoot over it" plays into this.

Good question.

I have seen rubber bands used effectively to keep clays on the stands.
