I'm getting ready to purchase a 3/4 and 7/8 oz charge bar for my MEC 700 Versamec and noticed that MEC has listed a "standard" and "skeet special" bars for each one.

Anyone know what is the difference between them?

Thanks

The 'skeet' bars generally throw a lighter than listed charge, to avoid any problems with the Nat'l Skeet association's tournament rules as to charge weight in a specific gauge. They are supposed to be fairly close when using #9 shot, the skeet standard. Shot weight varies quite a bit, depending on the content of the lead (antimony, etc).
