    Any issues with using ported briley chokes with ported browning bbls?

    just thinking if both ports are relatively close to each other will two ports counter any benefits of the ports?

    Its OK to use them together.

    But there really aren't any substantial benefits to either.

    Might be some benefit in doubles, but not at all in any kind of singles. In fact I'm going back to all factory flush chokes after comparing both during patterning.

    ports in tubes too far out to have any benefit, just a gimmick

    Most ports on chokes i have seen are more designed to aid in wad/shot seperation then to provide recoil or muzzle jump reduction. However i don't know if actually does any of the above.

    I had Briley's in my Beretta O/U.....the ported tubes make a hell of a mess..ya gotta clean them every time you finish for the day..they shed a lot of plastic from the wad and it gets really gummie inbetween them.....LarryB

    It's fine, but porting the stock too would compound the benefits.
