    rmccartyjr, the exact answer is to use whichever choke puts 80% of the pellets into a 30" circle at the distance you break your targets.

    Beretta's choke markings are a joke. However, their Im and F chokes do actually do what they say. The Mod is iffy. I had to go to a Briley tube to get actual Mod performance.

    A good IM choke (.025") is all you will need from 16 or 21 (been there, done that). For doubles, Mod and IM are good bets. If you shoot your first bird quickly, you can probably get by with the Beretta M choke in the Under barrel.

    Who cares what others say? Shoot them all and find what you like best. Otherwise, you'll never know for yourself.

    If you are shooting 1 oz I would use IM for 16 yards. With 1 1/8 oz of #8 shot, Mod will be a good starting point for 16 yards. Look for solid breaks of many pieces. As you gain skill and confidence choke tighter for practice. With my Beretta 682 I practiced with IM and shot Mod in tournaments. I found that I shot better with IM.

    For 22 yards and 1 1/8 oz of shot I used IM.

    For doubles try IC first shot 1 oz #8 shot and IM 1 1/8 oz of shot. Shoot the first target as fast as you can without being out of control. Then look for and move to the 2nd target.

    I would use 1 1/8 oz of #8 at 1145 f/s for 16 yards, punishing your shoulder with 1200 f/s loads may lead to flinching. If you just want to use 1 type of shell for 16 yard singles and handicap try 1 1/8 oz of 7 1/2 at 1145 f/s, until you get to the 24 yard line.

    Rich,

    using the Beretta optima chokes that came with your Etchen 687 use "mod" for singles, "imp mod" for hncp, "mod/imp mod" for dbls.
