    Fellow Shooters: I've been told that if your are shooting in higher elevation areas such as Colorado Springs, that you could go down one choke size, if you have removeable choke tubes, due to the higher elevation and air density. I was wondering if some of you have had any knowledge of this. Thanks.
    Will.

    If someone tells you that, look at them like they are an idiot. You won't be wrong.

    I'm not the expert here but Sportshot is correct.

    Thanks guys for your info. I'm arriving in Colorado Springs next week for the U.S. National Championships for shotgun. The last time I was there, I had a fixed choke top/bottom barrel. This time I will have a MX-8 barrel with a fixed choke on top and choke tubes for the bottom. Here in the low lands, I shoot a #6 choke and was considering using a #4 to open it up a bit. I've only had this barrel for short time and I've only used the #6 choke which I believe is the IM, looking through the Perazzi book.

    Will
