In my never to be humble opinion, I would go ahead and get a full choke. NOTHING less than IMOD. If the day comes that you want to sell or trade and it has a more open choke, you will regret your choice.

If you have barrel work done, Tom Wilkerson, Kerry Allor or Heritage Gunsmiths. Keep the receipt and you will usually get some of your $$$ back. Anybody else, you will get less for the bbl. Tom Wilkerson now does removable chokes. They are expensive but they are good.

.020 Choke with 1 1/8 oz 7 1/2 or 8s will give great breaks. The above usually have handicap chokes of the low to mid .030s. My Allor O/U barrels for doubles is choked .020/.030

I use a 0.018" for 16 yards, but I shoot very quickly.

I should also add that I shoot a 0.028" for 27 yards. It has served me well in staying on the 27 since 1975.

Many folks say choke for smoke... fine. I won't argue with anyone, on what THEY shoot for chokes, I can only say what works for me.

Probably because I shoot so quickly, I can get away with a looser choke. It would be a cold day in hell, however, when I shot a 0.039 choke from the 27.

As long as we are on the subject will someone please list approximate contrictions of standard choke terms XF,F,LF,IM,M along with the digit numbers used. Example .035 F #10. Asume a .740 bore. Thanks, gyrine

Here's the figures I've used as a rough measure of choke constrictions for a 12 gauge:
Skeet = .005; IC = .010; Light Mod = .015; Mod = .020; IM = .025; Light Full =
.030; Full = .035; X full = .040.
Subtract that from a .740 bore, and you have your inside diameter.
Hope it helps. John
