    I have an old Remington 1100 (not trap model)that I want to shoot Doubles with , I'm doing a modification on the stock , the Barrel is a 28" VR with mod printed on the side, will this size of choke be good to shoot Doubles ? , or should I buy another Barrel ?

    Perfect! And both shots have the same POI! Just put some kind of shell deflector on it so you have no complaints from the right! Biff

    Light Mod for the 1st shot...Mod for the 2nd.

    Curt,

    I just want to be there and watch him change his choke tube for the second shot.

    LOL

    My 1100 trap has a 28" mod barrel and I shoot doubles with it with no problem try it before buying another barrel.

    You will be fine shooting Dubs with what you have.

    Keep the gun clean and serviced. If you miss the first bird and the gun jams on the second, LOST PAIR!

    The choke is fine. As coach said, keep it extemely clean or lubed...or we stacked guys will give you the evil eye when you get a jam!

    modified is a perfect choice for doubles.

    Shooting doubles with a modified choke is much better than not shooting doubles. Modified would not be my first choice but doubles are fun with any choke.

    Back when I shot doubles mainly with a shell shucker, I tried the Mod. barrel, but found it a little light for the second bird sometimes. I settled on an IMP. Mod. which seemed to work better.

    With my 303 I shot best with improved modified as well. More open led to the light-on-the-second-bird problem sa refers to. But for just shooting, no one scoring, mod will be OK. It may even be OK when you get good. But a new shooter is usually a slow shooter, and this just makes modified worse.

    Neil hit the issue on the head. Although I prefer an O/U, I've done well with a modified choked semi-auto. That said...I tend to shoot faster than most. I also tried using a light load of 8's for the first shot, then 3 dr. 7 1/2's for the second. My universal epxerience with semi-auots for doubles has encompassed 3 different brands...Berreta 303, Winchester Super-X, and Remington 1100. Keep'em clean and dry...and they'll all work fine.
