Briley Full and Wright's Full out of my Beretta 682 Gold E Trap Unsingle 10 shots each the Wright's threw more consistant patterns. As to which one was better, they both had nice patterns. The Wright's just seemed to repeat the same pattern over and over again. The Briley had alot more flyers in the outside rings. This test was done on the grease board at the WSRC. That was with 19gr Green Dot in a STS hull, W209 primer, Fig 8 wad and 1 1/8oz of #8 shot. Results from other guns may vary. Thats my story and i'm stick'n to it.

another vote for Briley's. Also, it will vary with every gun and every load you shoot. So to get your answer you will have to buy both and try your favorite load and test as many times as you feel are enough. Break-em all. Jeff

<blockquote><i>"Unless we know why you vote for this or that choke, what value is it?"</i></blockquote>

That should be obvious: they cost $20 less and tested side-by-side, Brileys produced more uniform patterns with the same load formula from the same gun on the same day. On targets, Wright make chunks while Briley made crumbs.

Try hard to borrow tubes to try before you decide which to buy.

On my MT-6.. Wright had it all over Briley chokes... On my 18.4 series3 they were about the same.. In my Remington 870 pump.. Briley won.. On my Perazzi with Series2 chokes Wright won.. and was farther topped by chokes by Steve Balswin.. I look at a uniform 24" at 30 yards.. nothing outside the ring counts.. A space that a target can get thru is instant failure if it happens more than 5% of the time.. A hot core is not a killer unless the rest of the pattern is poor.. I like tight chokes.. Test run on only .020 or higher..

Marc.. did you try Briley chokes and see if they worked any better??? Stu has done countless choketube threadings for me.. and each and everyone has been perfect... While I like his choketubes..for some barrels.. others perform better.. Why???? I don't have a clue.. I'd like to see you contact Stu.. and see what he can do to help.. I hate for any of my friends to have even 1 unhappy customer..

If anybody wants a #5 and a #6 Wrights extended choke tubes to fit a .750 bore Kolar I will let them go very cheap. Just speak up and they are yours.

You know Goose, some one will try them in their gun and they may work great. How do you figure? It makes no sense at all but it happens. Oh well, Bob :)

Seems to me that how either one performs in anybody else's gun doesn't mean much. They're both good companies, but what matters is how they shoot in your gun. What shoots great in mine may suck in yours.

Sent you an e-mail Norman.

Bob, I understand what your saying I just don't need them anymore. I figured someone mite want them for half price.

Briley has it all over wrights in my KX-5. I tested on paper, steel pattern board and targets. I wasted $ on the wrights, lesson learned.
