MatthewWyatt,
Stand your ground, wads can go 75 yds and farther. And once they get up in the breeze they can fly off just about anywhere. Our club shelters, sidewalks, and parking lot are littered with them, and those are all uprange behind the shooters! Who knows how far some of them end up downrange.

I started shooting a light O/U at Trap last year and used 7/8oz factory loadings at 1200fps from Federal and Fiocchi. The wads from the Italian shells looked like some kind of G-design, and if anything could soar 75 yards, they were it. Straight flight paths for the most part, too. As effective as anything I shot in the way of 1oz, at singles, doubles and short handicap.

Wait until the lawnmower gets a hold of them. You'll find wads e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e.

My gun club has to get an annual reinspection from the local PD, because of our zoning. And every year we have to do police walks to make sure the wads that migrated find their way into the trash. That said, the downrange area of the trap field is fairly paved in wads.

Without assistance from the wind I doubt that wads travel 65 yards.

Standing on station 3 on a trap field, that wad would have to make it to the 50 yard pin where a legal trap target should fall that would be 66 yards.

I think we are exaggerating just a bit.

Pretty rare for there to be exaggerations when it comes to shotgunning, i'd admit.

If the wind is out of the NE with low humidity, and a full moon it could happen but not today because it's Friday the 13th.

Yes the wads don't break apart but doesn't affect my shooting at all. I really like the herters have shot 5 flats lately shoot really good for me.
