    Full is just fine unless you just have the desire to spend money on a choke you really do not need.

    In line with Shawn's correct observation, I'd get an aftermarket full or extra-full, any brand at all.

    I don't know. I'll bet most are fine. If you have Invector chokes in your BT then you really need something better. If they are Invector Plus, then the advantage of aftermarkets is less clear and may hardly be there at all.

    You'll not get much smoke from the 27 with any choke on a regular basis unless

    1. You shoot without delay

    2. Shoot with good accuracy.

    How is it shooting now? Does it break the targets or are you having a problem because it may not be the choke.

    Oh heck yeah ... but be sure its a hot zingy load as well so when it gets to the target it really smacks the begeebers out of the target so it goes POOFY in the air.

    I am not overly concerned with what might be stamped on the choke I use. I do want a choke that gives a full choke pattern with Winchester Super Handicap shells. Six out of 10 patterns I shot with my choke labeled IM were tighter than five, out of 10, most open patterns shot with the full choke tube. The choke I use is labeled IM.

    Now Pat,

    Everyone knows you have to shoot FULL choke. It's disturbing to think that you would get on here and leave threads stating that you are shooting something other than. :)

    My Ljutic has a .730 bore and a .030 constriction. It smokes targets from the 16 to the 27, as long a the bozo pullin' the trigger is doin' his part!!

    Pat, I hope you aren't saying that, based on the evidence you present here, that you've concluded that the IM shoots tighter than the full.

    And nailer123, in summer you might want to check the pattern percentage at 40 yards just to be sure, but with Invector Plus I'll bet you are just fine now.

    Truth be told....I shoot Mod/IM/LF from 16 to 30 (yes 30yd for Oakleys). I've won 2 Oakley's "shoot-offs" from 50 yds with my Mod (comp n" choke). I've only "smoked" with my IM and LF....but my son-in-law has "smoked" from 27 yds with my Mod.IT IS the SHOOTER !Chipping has little to do with the choke...anyone can "chip" with an Xfull, but if you're "zeroed" in....any good choke will "smoke-em".However...full's are more popular for whatever reason.I use my LF to get "zeroed".....then use IM/Mod. dependeing on Loads/Wind/Weather/etc.

    You may want to measure you choke tube constriction. Sometimes the manufacturer labels the choke "full" but its actually something else. When you measure the constriction then you have a much better idea of what you are working with. The next step would be a pattern sheet to check for pattern density. For me 35 thou works just fine from the 27 as long as I do my part.

    Cheers

    Not all guns will shoot the same. Some, including mine, pattern better with a improved modified choke. But alas you should check before making changes. - Jim

    FWIW-----the Browning Invector Plus "FULL" CT that I measured was .030" under bore. "Xtra Full" measured .040"

    BTW-----Browning Invector Plus "IM" measured just .020", it's a fact----Browning chokes are on the loose side.

    Shawn and Neil are correct about Browning factory chokes being more open than others because Browning uses a different rating system. The link shown above shows the constrictions Browning chokes are supposed to have. When I had a Citori I needed Extra Full for long yardage Handicap.
