Which shotgun choke do y prefer for # 4 BUCKSHOT

As you know you can use #4 Buckshot for predator hunting in Pa... What choke constriction do you like to use when shooting # 4 Buckshot in your shotgun?

I would use the most open choke ya got. I use cyl on my shotguns for #4. I get awesome patterns out of my 870.

All I've ever used for hunting, other than clays or birds, have been extra full to keep the shot dense

Re: Which shotgun choke do y prefer for # 4 BUCKSHOT

It really depends on what your trying to accomplish. The further away you are trying to shoot the tighter you want the choke, the closer the wider you want the choke. Personally I like my gun to pattern with 80% inside 10in at whatever distance I plan on shooting the most. Having said that there isn't a whole lot that a modified choke won't do pretty well in my opinion.

If an inline is just like a flintlock why don't you get a flintlock so you can hunt more seasons?

It's been my experience that choke tubes can and will act unpredictably at times. Just when you think you know which tube to pick for which shot size, you may get your eyes opened. Best thing to do is run a few #4 buckshot shells through each choke you have. The one you THINK should be the best may be...........or it may not. Only the patterning board will tell you for sure.
