who would be the best for opening a screw choke? I'd like to have a .010 opened to .007 or .008 for the 2nd shot on skeet doubles. Don't need any special tuning ala eyster, ect, just opened a couple thou.

trpshtr2001- i wish it was that easy, but the kolar factory chokes only ever came in .005 increments.

perazzi- thanks for the offer, i'll keep it in mind. I've got a date with a handful of shells and a football field worth of paper when the weather breaks.

You can do it yourself with a brake cylinder hone. Start with 220 grit and finnish with 600 grit. HMB

It may or may not be the "magic" .002, you won't know unless you try it.When you change shells, then the magic probably changes too. Have fun, Bob

As I have measured several choke tubes,from differant manufacturers, over the course of many years, with very accurate measuring devices, I would say that you are vastly over simplifing the solution.

A number of choke tubes have a shape to the restriction. And mearly taking off a couple thous off the restriction does destroy the shape, and may not have the desired result.

Buy a new choke tube. Or go ahead and destroy the one you have. It's you choice.

You can have the choke tube "duplicated" with the constriction you desire . Modifying an existing tube WILL change the configuretion of the tube and probably render it worthless BUT shiRt , I've wasted things a lot more valuable than a choke tube when "challenged" by a "what if" .

Pick your gun and then fill in what restriction you want. They will make you any thing you want around $45.00. In either bright or blued finished. About three weeks from order to your door, or that is what both of mine took.

Not saying it's the chokes but both pattern great as far as shot in the ring goes.

I think he wants a tighter choke for the 2nd bird on skeet doubles...................not a spreader type load.

Skeetman, If you indeed want to open your choke for the second shot in doubles, I agree with Perazzibigbore. Soft chilled shot will open faster than a 3% to 6% antimony shot and I would add about 50 fps. to your load as well. Hope this helps. Break-em all. JEff
