    use and why. Thanks

    The faster you shoot the targets, the more open the choke. .010 for the first bird and .025 for the second bird is a good starting point. The distance the target is from you when you pull the trigger is the key. HMB

    Ditto on what HMB advises.

    T&E will determine which chokes will work best for you under different weather circumstances. Also, different shell loads will vary and that needs to be taken into consideration also.

    For me, I have found that Lt. Mod (1st shot) and Mod (2nd) works best.

    I use a 0.015 and 0.030. I could likely use a 0.010 for the first target, but I'm not that speedy to the second, so I use the 0.030.

    Almost all of the top shooters use a minimum of .017 thousands on the first shot and .030 thousands on the second shot. Source is Phil Kiner's "the secret" in February 2007

    My K-80 Trap Special has .017 and .027, done by Tom Wilkinson. I had a Beretta O/U that was done by Tom Seitz many years ago and it was choked .020 on the first shot and .030 on the second, loved that gun. But I have shot my very best scores with my Super-X that the barrel was tuned by Tom Seitz, it had .032 thousands choke. Many 100's with that gun. A big sloppy choke is not the answer for better scores.

    32" Perazzi. .028/.015 top/bottom.

    1 oz 8's 2 3/4D for first bird,

    1 1/8 7 1/2's 3D for 2nd bird.

    For doubles his first shot is .017 and the second shot is .o37. He has a theory about how you need to learn to shoot a "hot core" and not rely on a big pattern. Hope to meet up with you somewhere along the trap line.

    I think I'll go with leo....

    I just got done shoot two rounds using a skeet choke and improved mod and as of now I'm in love with this combination.

    It was almost as if I didn't even have try to hit the first bird.
