Choke for Deer

What choke would I use if I am shooting buckshot out of a 12 gauge?

Re: Choke for Deer

Go pattern it with several chokes. Some shoot buckshot well with full and others good with Ipm Cyl. You should really shoot it on paper at several yardages before hunting.

Re: Choke for Deer

I do not have time to pattern my gun before I go hunting. If you had to guess which one to go with, what would you recommend? I have a Remington Spartan (28"-30") barrel....

Re: Choke for Deer

Full SHOULD work best, keep the shots within 30 yards, aim for the head, and you should be fine.

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook

Re: Choke for Deer

Know matter what choke you choose to use ......YOU <span style="color: #FF0000">still owe it to your quary </span>to shoot the gun before the hunt!!

You have no idea what for pattern it holds at what yardage.

As wild deer stated...DON't USE IT THEN!!!

Just can't beleave you had no time to pattern the gun...there is always time..before the season started..etc.
