OK, I do apologize for the false labeling.. however, I figured that would get more views to this thread. More viewers = more people who might be able to answer my question! OK, I have three shotgun chokes here that came with my Browning Gold 3 1/2 12 gauge. One says plus full, another says: plus mod, and the other: plus imp cyl Which one groups the tightest? how about the widest? Thanks... oh ya and the one that's been in the gun is quiet greast, should i clean it?

I think if you were more honest about your topic you will get an answer.

Full choke - tightest group Improved cylinder - loosest group Modified - Inbetween the above two

Depends on how good of a shot you are. I prefer modified for clay and dove, but switch to full for ducks because of the longer shots needed. Michael

Are you saying that you are going to shoot sporting clays with a 3 1/2 inch 12 guage shotgun shell?

If it were, he should try going out looking like that. He would be guaranteed to pick up some girls at a few select places in Dallas.... Michael

lol noooooo..... i'll use 2 3/4th cheapys... and to ponyboy, as of how good of a shot i am? not to brag, but I can, have, and DO hit clay pigeons IN THE AIR with my bolt action marlin 880 .22lr, very consistantly. I've just always wondered about this choke stuff for my shotgun... I've always used mod. too...

Actually, I use 2 3/4 in a Winchester 1300. The same load I use for dove. One of my friends' step dad bought out a sporting clay business when it closed down and he moved the whole operation out to his ranch for him and his friends to play with. I don't get to shoot with them as much as I would like, but Ive whipped my fair share of old guys with their $1500 O/U's. Michael

Ponyboy speaketh the truth. Full is the tighter of what you have. Imp cyl is loosest you have.
Link Posted: 8/5/2001 12:08:45 PM EDT
For trap type of clay shooting use the full.....for skeet type use the imp cyl

Before I call you a YELLOW DOG LIAR please explain how you shoot clays in the air with a bolt action .22. Are you firing at clays coming out of a trap house, 5 stand, etc...?

Shooting a clay with a rifle, common sense wise, is a bout as smart as taking a "sound shot" while hunting!!! [beer]

The best thing to do would be to pattern this shotgun at 40 yards and based on the amount of coverage that you receive, decide which choke will be best on sporting clays. As a rule of thumb, Browning chokes are typically fairly tight and the improved cylinder should be perfectly adequate for 99% of your sporting clay targets. A wider range of tubes is available on the aftermarket, such as [url]http://www.trulockchokes.com[/url] You will find that skeet and cylinder bore are wider patterning than improved cylinder. My all around favorite is skeet 2; in between modified and improved cylinder and that's what I used in my Gold for EVERYTHING.

Exactly what he said. I've been clay shooting and bird hunting since before I could even shoulder the gun. I used to hold it under my armpit. I actually use modified for my trap shooting because I pick up on the birds alot quicker than most people and don't wait for the bird to peak so I don't need the full choke(which is the tightest). I average 97 out of 100. And yes, this is at a Trap and Skeet range with electric throwers. Anyways, please stop shooting your rifle into the air.

I have a person stand about 15 feet to the side of me, and have them throw them out with a hand launcher... if you throw the clays hard, they do go pretty far. No, I am NOT lying. I usally use the Winchester cheapies, you get at bi-mart for 11 bucks per 500. Today I used .22 Thunderbolts, and did not do quite as good. BTW: My back stop is 1000s of acers of national forest, with no fireroads/camping areas/tailers, etc. I know what I'm doing :)

You are really Chief A.J. or Captain Beta obvious C. I know Chief A.J. so you must be the latter.
