    I have a browinng 425(left handed) I purchansed from millers in delaware about 2 months ago, a great all around gun, I'm very happy with it. I trap shoot about 75% of the time but go to M&M in new jersey for sporting clays-great place! anyway, when I purchased the shotgun and told bob miller how I planned to shoot with it, he put on a IM extended choke on the bottom and and IC on the top(I purchased the browning midas extended chokes). Would anybody recommend changes. I understand the differences in the tightness of the shot/spread ie full-the tightest if I'm correct. thanks for suggestions

    I shoot a 425 for trap. While I use the basic INV+ chokes, if all you're shooting is singles - the IM is fine unless you wanted to tighten up a notch and throw in a full. If you're shooting any doubles, I would expect the more open choke in the "under" barrel, and shooting that one first.

    i loaded up some 1 oz. home made shot and shot 2 rounds of trap today with skeet chokes from 16 yards and broke targets just fine--powder no..but not just chips either.

    The link above shows the Browning factory specs for chokes. Notice that these are more open than other aftermarket manufacturers because Browning rates their chokes in a different manner. I heard that Midas chokes are tighter than standard Invector Plus. The IC should be good for Sporting Clays but sounds too open for Trap.
