FNG from SoCal

Hi! I'm new here but not new to shotguns. I've been shooting clays for around a decade and have several guns, mostly subgauge. My first shotgun was a 12ga 28" Citori that I use for trap and field.

Skeet, however, is my favorite game and I've been shooting the .410 there alot but recently I've been struggling with the away birds on stations 2 and 6.. picking up the bird too late for some reason.

I reload all my own shells and think I need to speed up my 28ga skeet load because I seem to need more lead with the 28 than the 410 after switching to 20/28 from Universal. First world problems.

That's all for now. Thanks for having me.

Welcome from TN!
Where are you shooting skeet in SoCal? I was stationed up in Victorville for 12 years in the 80's and 90's, shot at the airbase there until they closed it and I retired. Did some registered skeet at El Monte, Redlands, Miramar, Edwards, etc.

Thanks TN!
I mostly shoot at my club, we have one skeet field and one trap field. I've also shot at Oaktree and Triple B.
I'm always looking to shoot more skeet!
