How long on average does it take to shoot a round of ML Trap?
I don't know exactly, it's not like we are in a big hurry to finish. Sometimes shooters even take a break in the middle of the match.
Muzzleloading trap does not use squads like modern trap. Shooters load at the loading table, usually somewhere in the shade, then carry their loaded but uncapped or primed gun to their next firing position, muzzle up and above head height at all times, prime or cap at the firing station, call for the bird and shoot, then leave the firing station to reload.
Every shooter has an individual score card that's pinned to the scorekeeper's pin board and at the 4 day shotgun only shoot held near Wichita Falls, the shooters all wear a number on their back for the scorekeeper.
I have never participated in the Friendship trap and skeet matches, but people who go there report that shooters have permanent numbers assigned to them and most of the shooters have them sewn onto the back of their shooting vests.
At Brady, only a handful of people shoot shotgun matches so we all just know each other and pull/score for each other. Pretty informal.

People who own double barrel guns can load both barrels and shoot twice before reloading.
