This is where you're style of shooting and the patterning board and your shells all come into play. At what yardage do you hit your fist and second shot? Pattern your shells at that distance, at see what chokes give you the best results. Then try a round with them. If you are getting solid breaks, there you go. Anyone who tells you lt. mod and heavy mod or something like that is only telling you what works for them, in their gun, with their shells, this may or may not work for you. Bruce AA

.008 and .023. One of the most important things is POI of the barrel for the second shot. When you shoot that second bird is it rising, level or falling? This year 94. HMB

Depends if you're shooting a O/U or one barrel (semi/slide)gun.

One barrel, IM all the way.

O/U, .015 first shot and .028 second shot if still rising. If target is falling, you'll need to tighten up a little more.

Learn to shoot a 7/8 or 1 oz load for the first shot. Recovery time is the key to the second target.

Listen to 1Brucem, he got it right. Said a different way, the shell/choke combinations that give you 85% patterns at the distances you break your targets will give you your best chance for success.

Thanks ZZT, to add to what ZZT says, 85% can have a very hot core or a more even distribution. Look for the choke that gives the 85% with out a very hot core. Bruce
