    Trapman you need to know your POI. I would take the time to pattern different chokes with different shells.

    My BT-99 gets a higher percentage of shot with 1 ounce loads through a Carlson's extended IM than it does with the Browning Full tube.

    Also, you can do a search on POI, POA, lots of info on here. Wayne

    Ditto on the Imp Mod; the kid was 0 for 5 on full, and I told him to use the IM and he started hitting like a major leaguer. I havent had the best results with Mod because I use 7/8 oz 12's and the pattern may be too thin but it may be ok for 1 1/8 loads.

    regards

    Same as Matt for me. I have found the Browning factory chokes to be pretty much junk. I like Wright's.

    I have a BT 100 32in barrel and Briley LM from 16yds is the best. Even on nice days I've shot it from the 20 and 21 just switch from 8 shot to 7 1/2.

    My Unsingle has a new style Angleport Gold extended XF. It stays in regardless where I shoot.
