Re: Shot size and choke

#6 in my improved/modified O/U I shoot a light load in my improved and a heavier load in my modified and I have selective triggers to change on the "Fly."

Re: Shot size and choke

It's hard to beat high brass and # 6's in Mod choke,but if I am out West or late season wild birds it''s #5 in full choke!

It's breeding,training...and something unknown.
