1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    what constriction do you want? The number X .004' equals constriction.

    no such thing as a #14. .724 bore, .685 choke = .039 constriction, or a #10. I have see an eleven, but a 14 would equal about .060 constriction.

    OK Joe What do I have? I bought the gun used with the chokes. There is a
    # 14 etched on the side of one.The same type of choke shown in one of the threads above. With my mike I get a .685 reading The bore reads.727=.42
    I am useing a inside mike for those readings. With the bore gauge
    I got from Ken I get a .43 reading. Am I doing something wrong? I think that
    = a tight full.So i'm looking for a little more open choke. thanks for your help, Please let me know what you think. Butch H

    Butch,

    From what you describe, you are measuring the bore and constriction properly and the choke is the difference between the two. Your calculation, however is not .42 it is .042 which is the original EXTRA FULL factory OEM choke on your TM1. That choke may have been necessary with the old style European shells that were around when the TM1s were manufactured, however, a choke of .042 with today's ammunition is much too tight, IMHO. A constriction of .032 is more than enough to break targets from 27 yards back and beyond with HDCP 7 1/2 shells...we do it all the time!

    What EuroJoe has posted is correct...multiply the choke number by .004 to determine the choke number with the constriction you are looking for...

    .004 X 6 = .024

    .004 X 7 = .028

    .004 X 8 = .032 (BINGO) and thank you EuroJoe for giving me one!!! These are hard to find.

    .004 X 9 = .036 FULL...just a tad tighter than I like even for handicaps.

    .004 X 10= .040 just about right back at an unaltered TM1 barrel configuration.

    I hope this helps...
