Best choke set up for 20 ga O/U
wondering what you grouse and upland guys think the best choke would be for my 20 GA O/U. It currently has a choke with 3 notches ( modified) and 4 notches (improved cylinder). I am not positive on what one is in what barrel but I think that the modified is on the top and improved cylinder is on the bottom.
What do you feel is the best way to set up this set up.? IC on the top, and Modified on the bottom, with the top barrel selected first? I mainly want this gun to shoot grouse, and wood cock in moderate cover, but will also be shooting some quail, chucker and pheasant. I will be hunting dove a few more times this year as well, then I want to have it set up for grouse and woodies. I hunt over a flushing dog if that makes your suggestions sway one way or the other.
Also what shot size do you recommend for the 20 gage and for what game. I don't really trust what is on the back of the boxes for say.
I took 7/8 oz of #8 for dove, but think this will be a little light for grouse. I was thinking that maybe 1 ox of #6 would be good for grouse. I am not sure if 7 1/2 is going to be more light. I would like to have a lot of bb's coming out of the barrel, but the pattern shot I took with my 20 before the dove hunt, looked really spread out with the IC at 25-30 yards.
I am open to any suggestions you all would have, and am eager to get back out there and see what works.
