    I was thinking of using a turkey choke for practice, Is this a bad or good idea?

    This choke very rarely leaves my Unsingle. I prefer and recommend TIGHT chokes.

    That is what I use. With it, either I smoke the bird or miss it clean. Very, very rare chips. I'm a recreational shooter. Chichay

    If I practice for ATA events, I want to use the same things I will shoot in the ATA events.

    The barrel is fine. I have my doubts about the owner.

    You mean one is supposed to clean barrel ports?

    Most Turkey Chokes don,t work well with small shot . Years ago a new Game shooter bought a Turkey Choke for his BT-99 (going to do it now) . After a week of hitting very little we patterned it (very poor)

    For practice.. I much perfer .040 and more.. with 24 gram.. It's hit.. or miss.. Inkball or nothing.. It trains you to be 100%.. not 98%.. Then.. for a match.. 1 1/8oz.. feels like a trawl net

    I agree PBig Bore,,..when 40 thouanths and tighter guys miss they miss completely...i guess I must be doing it wrong .025 singles and .030 for caps
