What Chokes do you use in Trap games Buddies and Annies?

Back up shot in these games, involves heavy high velocity handloads, shot past the 27 Yard line.

Due to the distance and lead needed to hit these targets – high velocity loads is the norm.
However, this goes against the belief that high velocity loads blow your pattern.

Do you go to a tighter choke or will that hurt your pattern more?

I use an extra full choke at the 27 with the same wally federals that I shoot 16s with in the buddy shoots. Works fine just gotta learn to lead them a bit.

If I have a tubed gun, I generally use a IM Comp-N-Choke and 1 1/8oz of 6's going 1350fps or so for back-ups. I can break them as far as I can see them with both. I use my 'caps load for call birds until I get out past the 30yd line. And yes, my 'caps load is ATA legal 1 1/8oz of 7 1/2's or 8's going 1235fps.

Big shells all the time lead to bad flinches and sloppy shooting!

I don't change a thing. I belive shooting a "duck" load does no better in the parking lot than a 3 dram Estate. I shoot a full choke from the 16 yard line all the way back to the fire pits and I can shatter an Annie target a foot off
the ground with a 1200FPS 7.5 shot. I believe it's the shooter, not the shell. My close friend does equally as well with fixed IM chokes in long yardage games. Don't beat yourself up with a heavy hunting load. It's really not needed.
