I have shot registered ATA Trap for 17 years, always shooting 2-3/4 dram 1-1/8oz 8s all the way back to the 24 yard line with Remington being my first choice in ammunition.
As I get closer to becoming a veteran shooter I have tried different ways to reduce felt recoil; so, after reading about the STS 1oz loads I thought I'd give them a try.
I first tried this load out on the patterning board, and observed that my POI remained at 70/30 with a dense pattern that didn't leave any openings for a target to slip through.
Shooting from the 16 yard line I was able to smoke targets as well as if I were using the 1-1/8oz loads, with a very noticeable reduction in recoil. The STS 1oz loads have now become my preferred 16 yard target load. Thanks Remington!

I shot 10 boxes in 12/2010 in Texas and I really liked them. No malfuntions in a SBEII. They kill right now no wounding geese. They do kick like a mad mule. I removed cones, ported bbl, back bored the SBE and shoot ported chokes. This probably took out 40% of the kick. I can now see what I hit. - T. W.
