View Full Version : Patterning 12ga trap gun

September 17, 2005, 03:49 PM
Got back into trap shooting and would like to pattern my shotgun.
I'm shooting singels and need to know a few measurements.
#1) What distance shoud I pattern at if I'm shooting singels?
#2) How large should my "target" paper be?
I am using a Remmington 3200 Special trap with a full choke over an improved modified.
Any info would be appreciated.. Thanks

1, 35 yards. Most folks hit their birds between 33 and 37 yards when shooting at 16 yards.

2, 4'x4' if you can.

Pattern both barrels. You may find a better spread with one given the same load.
