Besides the late Leo Harrison, do you know of another All American or a high average 27 yard shooter who used or uses a 0.045 choke constriction? Anyone know what the barrel I.D. is on the Beretta DT11?

DT11
18.4 mm = .724" with a 19" forcing cone!

I'd still measure with a bore gauge to confirm

Thank you Neil.
For the kind of range at which we typically break targets in our sport, it's been my experience with a fair number of guns over 30+ yrs of shooting that once you get to .035 points of constriction in a well built choke there's not much gain in what I'll call "hit quality" going to .040 and above.

My take on the subject corresponds with Neil & Don Steele posts above. The tighter chokes throw their best patterns with quality hard shot and moderate velocities. Fast loads using low antimony shot and extra-full chokes seldom get ideal results. For clays out
in the 50 to 70+ yard range I prefer Imp. Mod( -.028) or Light Full (-.033 ) My Browning XS, both barrels measure 0.743.
