    I do sometimes. I use 7 1/2 for everything and I choke full for everything.

    I use 7/8 in 12ga for practice from the 16 out to the 24

    Brad Dysinger uses a B-303 in 20 to shoot his singles.

    I think a lot of kids start w/ 20's. I know mine did and both shot registered w/ the 1100 20ga. They both shot respectable scores w/ the 20. 98 was the best score either did w/ it.

    I have shot my M12 20 gauge quite a bit. I load 1 oz of 7.5 for almost everything. I also play games with it sometimes. 1 1/8 of 6's with some longshot and it will break them from the fence. Have fun with it!

    I remember when Brad started shooting the 20 at Vandalia, did he ever break a 200 with it.

    I saw a very nice Charles Daly 20 gauge O/U made years ago with a Monte Carlo stock and 30 inch barrels. At the time I was shooting BT-99 and Franchi, and let it go by me.

    If I ever see another it will be mine.

    most of the time I just use my vintage 1996 12 gauge Citori Lightning Sporting Cays for trap. Has the high-post rib and 30" barrels. Works well...

    I shot a money shoot at Random Lake Wisconsin this past summer with a gentleman that was shooting a Kolar 20 gauge sporting clays gun. He had 100x100 and I will tell you that I only noticed one target that was broke in several pieces. The rest were smoke.

    SWEET, that`ll shoot like a rifle.You will have to do the tighten up with your game to get results,thats the beauty of it.When you switch back to 12g 1oz it`ll feel like shooting from the hip.

    Wally how do you make the 28" a 30" --and are those 12 ga stocks made to fit a 20-- never saw a 20 MC stock.

    we have made a 2in extension with mobil choke threads , the same outside diameter as the barrel-it leaves a fine line-which when reblued is hardly noticeable after a rerib job over the new extension--the stocks are 12ga retro fiited to a 20ga frame-- i have being made this next week some monte carlo stocks that can be shaped either way. and then checkered!--- the combs are taken down to the shooters prefered drop and usually no adj comb added- we reshape the offset to get barrel bead alignment if needed--sweet shooting guns---let me know if you want one put together---most are in the $1600-1800 range depending what we get bot for reciever and barrel to start with!!!!

    I think Brad told me, 199/200, was his best with his 20 ga.? Not bad for made up 20 ga. trap shotgun I'd think?
