    I am wanting to start shooting trap and have a savage stevens 512 o/u 12 gauge, what type of choke should I use, I was told to use the IM choke from 16 to 24 and a modified for longer shots.

    Put the Full choke in and throw away the key.

    Just use the IM. Then enjoy yourself.

    Picket, IMHO, the IM will suit you fine, the Modified is actually a larger constriction than the I(Improved) Modified.

    If your shooting doubles, put your Modified in the barrel you use for first bird, and the IM in the barrel for the second bird.

    see which barrel works best for singles, and make that your 2nd barrel for doubles..

    good luck
