At the end of the day I watched a guy shoot it with 3 rounds and it nearly spun with the first 2. Something changed there. 30 second penalty was stiff especially after you worked on it for 10.
I shot the spinner for my second stage and it spun with 1 round of birdshot (3.5 dram, 1 1/8 oz. of 7.5) and 2 rounds of 00 buck.
(that was, of course, after I stopped it on my first attempt)
But, I was not in to win anything on my first 3 Gun match.
