Last Sunday went and shot a round of clays. I decided to take my newest aqustion a Breatta Silver Snipe 12ga. I bought a few years back to go with my 20ga. model.
It is choked full and mod. and I have only shot it a couple of times to pattern it at different yardages and to see what I could reload to open the pattern up a bit.
So at station one a very difficult station for me where I consider it a good start if I break one bird, with my normal 20ga Mod choke. I got 3 of the 4 birds, Ok I admit the course had been changed for the sponcered shoot the week before.
The changes were all weird, all that well for my partner and he never did see the 1st bird except the smoke from my first hit.
Station 2 like all the others was changed, 1st. a really high flyer about 30 yards out going right to left was smoke also, 2nd. from left to right a mini about 25 yards out got knocked silly.
The rest of the course went pretty much the same. In the end we guessed I killed 85% of the birds many smoked into dust. Like I tell the girl at the desk, a score card is some thing we would need if we were cheaters.
Now what could it be that caused me to have such a good day? just a really good day? The tight chokes of the shot gun? The shot gun fit me so well,much better than any others?
Don't really know but plan on taking that shot gun again when I go.
