Sorry this is not the correct Clay target I have been a competition clay target shooter since the early eighties and this brand of clay was manufactured and used in the late 80,s early 90, you will notice the word Olympic is spelt differently because the company by law could not use the word Olympic, i have the clay pigeon brand used in the 1956 Olympics and it is called a Bronze wing with lCl stamped on the underbelly
