    After taking about 15 years off from shooting, I plan to start again. I have a question about chokes. I am shooting a Browning XS with 28" barrels. What choke should I use for 16 yd and 22 yd. Thanks in advance.

    I'd start with a Modified at 16 and an Improved Mod at the 22. Some will tell you the tighter the better. It's a matter of personal preference. The Improved Modified is a good compromise choke for almost all yardages. I prefer some of the aftermarket chokes over the OEM ones. I seem to get a more even and consistent pattern. If you have the gold "Midas" chokes, then they are similar to the Brileys and probably quite good enough. As a sporting gun, I'd also check the point of impact to see if the gun shoots flat or slightly high. Check BOTH barrels.
