I shoot a Modified choke for Trap singles ...from the 16 yd line - to the 20 yd line. My primary shell in a 12ga is 1 oz of 8's at 1225 fps...

Just a Note....but you stand 16 yds behind the Trap house ( at 16 yd singles ) and as you call for a target ...it will fly about 20 - 25 yds before it starts to level off and fall..so call it 35 yds ....ideally you want to shoot it when its still under power and rising... and you select your choke - to give you a 30" pattern ( with no holes in it big enough for a clay to fly thru unscathed --- at the intended kill range ) ..and at 35 yds a Modified choke in most guns will give you a good dense 30" pattern. In general, you need 3 or 4 pellets of a load of 8's to break a Trap target at that range...( 1 oz loads have about 409 pellets of 8's in a shell )....you can shoot 9's at 16 yds as well ....or 7 1/2's ...
