    Under what circumstances would you use an improved cylinder choke (constriction .010")? Trap? Skeet? Yardage? Is it good for any clay shooting?

    It's a good Sporting Clay and 5 stand choke. I find it good at about 20 yards.

    First shot in both Trap Doubles and Skeet doubles and Skeet single from any station except a little tight at 8.

    Thank you to all who responded. I appreciate and respect your opinions. Where, exactly, does one go to find a Hungarian partridge and at what yardage should that sucker be shot?

    I see Hungarians any morning camping at the club in Madras, Oregon, so I'd wager they're a high desert type of animal. Distance? that would much depend on the lay of the land. My Imp. cyl. is all I use at sporting and 5 stand shot socially. I don't hesitate to use them at skeet too if that's what is in the barrels....breakemall......Bob Dodd

    Kay Ohye used to say the difference in choke patterns is measured in inches, and your misses in yards.

    If you want to "woof" skeet targets, as opposed to just break them, IC is a great choke. Good way to practice. Cylinder choke is enough with 12 and 20...but IC makes the experience much more pleasurable and ingrains the proper habits in your mind's eye.

    Got Hungarians all over here in NE Wis. Damn things know the range of a shotgun too. Soon as you sneak close to a flock they fly to the other end of the field.

    Tasty lil devils, though.

    It's real good for the wabbit targets in sporting clays.

    Great choke for early season pheasants over dogs.
