    I know that Leo and the top guns say stuff like, "Any choke is OK as long as it is full." I also know that I am not fit to carry Leo's shells! I would like to have the opinion of you folks on whether a Briley Light Full choke in my Browning would be enough choke from the 23 yard line? Thanks, Martinpicker (Jack Farrow)

    I've broke clays consistently with a IM choke from the 27 in practice.

    IM, LF, F all will work from 23 depending on you, your load and your gun. Keep your wood on the wood and you'll break some clay.

    If my Browning had choke tubes that is exactly what I would shoot from 16 yards to as far back as you want to go.

    Briley "light full" is .030" constriction. Yes, that's plenty at 23

    Martinpicker What I have found is every shotgun is not mad the same or should I say every barrel is not mad the same I have shot KX5 , Perazzi and browning skb and a winchester select energy and a Devault infinity and they all pattern different my select sporting gun is different from the brownings even though they both use the invector plus tubes the select is made in FN Belgium and the browning citori in japan and MY Devault infinity patterns tight accross the board I use a MOD choke and just smoke targets from the 25 -27 with both 1oz and 1 1/8 oz loads so I suggest to you go shoot it and pattern it from 35 yds out and see how you break targets remember one thing 1 1/8 oz load has a 9 foot shot STRING if you are on the target it will break you have to hit the target with pellets for it to break.

    Tim.That is just for #9 shot. 7-1/2 shot only measures 7'-6". Do the math will ya?

    I use a Clearview .28 constriction at 23 yd. in an older BT 99. .36 at 25-27 with good results. Clyde

    Martinpicker,

    A light full should be OK, but you never know.

    The answer is, like mx2005 said, you really ought to pattern it at a distance appropriate for your yardage, with the shells you are going to use. 35 to 40 yards is good.

    See what the patterns show.

    Since eyeballing it is, at best, guesswork, a really good idea is to use Dr. Andrew Jones shotgun insight program to analyze the patterns. Then you'll know.

    Thank you folks. I should have told you the loads I will be using are ounce and an eighth of 7.5 shot with 3 dram equivilant powder in Gun Clubs and Estates. I appreciate your opinions. Martinpicker
