From what I gather from reading and asking other shooters you can shoot Trap with anything from 7 1/2 to 9 shot loads. I bought some 8 shot because it was in the mid range not because it was preferred by those who shoot Trap all the time.
I shoot trap every Thursday in the VT non-winter months (6 months).
