    Depends on the gun but Mod to IM (.020 to .028) sounds about right. My old Ljutic will bust targets with authority from the 27 with .022" fixed choke. Numbers are just a starting point. It's how the gun hits targets that counts. Different guns, even the same make and model will probably react differently from each other with the same choke restriction. Marc

    I agree with Leo's assessment, any choke is ok as long as it's full.

    Stu Wright opened up my old BT-99 to .023.

    Great for singles & hits 23 yd caps hard.

    .038" and #7.5 seems to work about everywhere.

    Depends on the ammunition too; some shells perform better (tighter?). My opinion, for best score no less than .022 - no more than .035.
