    Any of you ever patterened a Cutts with a Spreader at 25 yards vs say a WS1? I have considered looking for a Cutts barrel but wondered how the pattern compared to most other skeet chokes?

    Just patterned 12 ga spreader ; pattern was very good at 25 yd but a bit thin at
    30 yd.....no I didn't count pellets and all that stuff. See my post re/ Cutts
    barrel problem . Anyone know where I can get mod or IC tubes : Brownell's catalogs them but tell me all have been discontinued sometime ago. Years ago I had a Model 50 Win with WS-1 choke and as I recall it was a bit on the tight (IC )
    side ...

    To find Cutts Chokes. For my guns, I just went to the gun shops in my vicinity. I found all I needed for my 12, 20 and 28 gauge guns. They were either free or I paid a nominal amount.

    I shoot both Cutts and a Kolar comp. The Kolar is on an 11-87 12 ga, and has the Kolar Skeet choke. The Lyman Cutts I have has a Spreader, IC, Mod, & Full chokes, and is on a 12 ga 1100. The Spreader is more open that the Kolar Skeet, and the IC is just a bit tighter than the Kolar Skeet. Of them all, the Kolar Skeet gives me the best breaks and I have a couple of 99's and one 100 with it (Skeet, of course). I also have a Standard 20 ga 1100 with a Kolar and Skeet choke, and it performs well, too.

    I see Cutts chokes on eBay regularly, although some have an inflated opinion as to their worth. I was able to get an IC for $40 delivered, but that does not happen often.

    The IC choke is one of the harder ones to find.

    Kolar made S for skeet chokes, and D for doubles chokes.
