    I was told that Browning chokes constriction is more open than other choke tubes, so can anyone tell me if they really are more open?
    Thanks

    Yes they are definitely more open. Browning used to have a website that showed the exact specs but it is gone. Browning rates their choke tubes by the percentage in a 30" circle instead of constriction like other mfgrs. IM in Browning Invector Plus is rated to be about .020 - .022 constriction compared to .025 for others. Browning Modified is rated at .012 - .015 constriction which is Light Modified. Browning Full is about .030. Browning factory chokes work when you understand their rating and use a tighter choke tube than the other mfgrs.

    The only way to tell is to measure the bore diameter and the choke tube. HMB

    Most likely.

    If you want full choke performance get a Briley full or, better yet, and extra full.

    If you buy a Full it is gonna be more of a Light Full. The Midas chokes are made by Briley I think and have a more accurate designation. I found Browning IM to be fine for 16 yard targets and Browning Full to be fine for up to about 24-25 yards. I bought a Wright's Full for 27 yard Handicap.
