    Got tired of shooting bullets out of my .040 orig Perazzi MX3 .725 bbl and sent it off to Briley to have chokes put in. They did a wonderful job, It "peeps" perfectly wit all 3 chokes (.020, .025, .030). I got the thinwall that are about 2-1/2" long. Began with the .020 at the singles stripe, and then went back to learning my recently acquired MX15. And for fun went bak and shot a 27 yard round with the MX3 and forgot that I had the .020 choke in the gun. I broke-em-all usinig light 8 Estates. I even broke the off shots well.

    Getting handle on this "cross-fire" thingy... Still shooting 2-eyed.

    "Peeps" are Bob Schultz of Target shotguns and my fave items for looking thru a bbl and seeing if some so called bbl driller-outerer has bored the bbl catty-whumpus. Seehase is the one that desigend the commercial product of placing a obstruction in the choke wiht a small hole in it nad then looking thru the breach and checking out the "rings" to see if they were even and "concentric". He only made a few, And I would like to have a real set, but I use a deprimed 20 ga hull withe the plastic cut-off about a half inch above the brass. If a bit loose I shim it wiht a layer of scotch tape. I'll go see if I hae a pic and come back. If not, I'll take a pic of one of my sets and post it.

    up for new post pattern board

    The lowest hash marks are for the .020 choke tube. The middle is the .025. The top is .030

    I sht one or more at a hashmark. I do this standing from 13 yards

    [​IMG]

    The shell shows a norm for me of about 2-3" above center

    [​IMG]

    This one shows a silghtly higher norm fo rme

    This may be higher than I actually shoot.

    All-in-all, the Briley chokes shot strate and you can visibly see tthe less open choke as you go form tomp to bottom.

    All it proved to me was that the gun was shooting strate and at about a 75/25 level POI. I do not use paper. Just put the hash marks on with a magic marker. 3 days from now, most of the hits nad hash marks will be gone.

    Why do I use this? To make sure I am not trying to teach my mind a new POI and to make sure the gun shoots strate.
