    From berettausa.com Subtract from .732 nominal for constriction.

    Per my Baker barrel gauge: Bore .732

    Skeet .000

    IC .007

    Mod .015

    IM .025

    Full .037

    If you are a Sporting shooter, .015 is usually light mod, but in this case it's mod. Big difference in the IC vs Mod patterns.

    The IC choke shoots fairly tight, almost like a Peazzi light mod.

    I got very close to Setterman's results.

    Full1 and Full2 are just two different Optima fulls I have.


    Didn't have an official shotgun bore gauge but used one of these instead.
    They are kinda accurate:
