Modified to full chokes are the standard for 16 yard targets as you describe (shot at under 35 yards from where you stand) with a leaning to Imp. mod or full. As far as shot size, you'll find folks here shooting everything from 1 1/8 oz of #7.5 to 7/8 oz of #9s and various combinations with those parameters. If I was limited to just one load, it would be 1 oz. of #8s for all shots through an Imp. Mod. choke.....breakemall.....Bob Dodd

I would tell you to go pattern your gun with 7 1/2's and 8's see which throws the best pattern and start with a modified choke because it gives you a little more margin of error. Then once you get on them for sure at practice shoot a full as it will teach you to shoot more precisely.


My .02 for a new shooter.
