Hull Cartridge Review

Skeet Skeet 0 Comments

Hitting a standard DTL target isn’t of itself that much of a challenge. Hitting 100 of them in a row with the first barrel most certainly is. It is a constant search for perfection with a margin for error slimmer than your average supermodel. This means that equipment has evolved over time which is fine-tuned to give the best results in this quite specific situation. The typical trap gun for example, as developed for DTL, puts steadiness and pointability at a premium.

TARGET & TRAJECTORIES

In calm conditions both traps shall be set so that one target shall emerge from a trap house (High House) at a point 91cm beyond the station marker 1 (measured along the base chord extended), and 3.05m above the level of station 1. The other target shall emerge from a trap house (Low House) at a point 91cm beyond station marker 7 (measured along the base chord extended), and 76cm from the base chord extended (measured on the side of the target crossing point), and 1.07m above the level of station 7. The targets shall fly a distance of 50m to 52m and pass within 45cm of a point 4.57m above the ground known as the Target Crossing Point (see plan). Where the Referee is satisfied that a variation in target trajectory is such that the equity of the competition can not be maintained he may ask the jury to reset the targets.

Targets to be used shall comply with ISSF Rules.

Regular Target: One which having been set as in Rule 1, appears instantly when the shooter calls.

An Irregular Target:
An unbroken target which has not conformed to the definition of a regular target.
Two (2) targets thrown simultaneously in singles.
Targets thrown broken: under no circumstances shall the result of firing upon a broken target be counted.

Regular Doubles: A regular target thrown from each trap house simultaneously.

Irregular Doubles:
If either or both targets of a double are thrown as irregular targets.
If only one (1) target is thrown.

SAFETY

It is the responsibility of all shotgun users to behave in a safe manner at all times.

Treat every gun as if it is loaded.

Carried guns must be open and empty at all times except when on the shooting stand and it is your turn to shoot.

When the gun is closed keep the muzzle pointed down-range at all times.

In the event of a misfire or malfunction the gun muzzle must be kept pointing safely down-range. Hand the gun to the Referee with the muzzle still pointing down-range.

When “clearing” guns ( which will be permitted on your first layout only) never shoot at the ground or near the traphouse.
