ABT Clay Pigeon Shooting
Competitive and Non-Competitive ABT Clay Pigeon Shooting available within County Durham
An Automatic Ball Trap (ABT) squad consists of six shooters with only one target shot at each stand before moving to the right for the next target. Two shots are allowed at each target but unlike Down the Line (DTL), either shot scores equally. ABT targets are faster and have a greater range of angles and heights than DTL. They are thrown on random trajectories from a single trap in front of the centre stand.
So, in a nutshell, it is very similar to DTL but instead of the trap oscillating left and right it also oscillates vertically and most importantly the speed and the angles are more extreme.
