    pattern them is the only true way to tell

    why not use them as marked?

    The numbers you listed are the amount of constriction which equals the amount of choke. For lead shot those constrictions would be .002 = cyl. bore, .006 = skeet 1, and .009 = imp. cyl. I am not familiar with the constrictions used for steel shot. HMB

    Have you thought about looking at the Remington website? They have a plethora of information regarding Remington guns on that site.

    No problem shooting lead through those chokes. You will probably find that even the 'pass' tube is a bit too open for trap targets when you use lead target loads. No problem, go buy a IMOD of FULL lead tube for when you want a tight lead shot pattern.

    Sounds like you bought a modern day duck gun for hunting ducks with steel shot. If that is the case, just use the chokes you have as marked.

    you have to remember steel shot is very hard compared to lead. old rule of thumb is use two shot sizes bigger in steel than you would in lead, and two sizes more open choke for steel. usually imp. cyl. constriction for lead will get you a modified or tighter pattern from steel, depending on the shot size you choose. the only sure way to tell is pattern it on paper. some modern choke tubes are marked for constriction in lead and what it is for steel. have fun.!!!

    Wolfram is right. If you get too confused throw the chokes away and buy a new set with regular markings.

    Why not just spend $20 at Wally World, Gander Mountain, Bass Pro, Cabela's, Dicks or any good sporting good store and get yourself a modified choke for the gun?
