    i have a Fabarm and i always shoot Full choke and steel shot… also have a beretta semi auto and also use full choke on that.. always shooting 36gr mags #3 shot with both… beautiful patterns on water and very long range shots on goose and ducks..

    I don’t understand why the bigger manufacturers dont supply more chokes with new guns , 2 of each .

    Never change your choke unless you are shooting a rabbit. Sporting Clays.

    A very informative video for someone new into choke tubes. Pretty much gives all the information a new shooter needs regarding choke selection, well done George. Just a point about the choke gauge you mentioned, it will only tell you the difference between chokes, not the actual restriction which is determined by the internal dimension of the barrel in relation to the restriction at the muzzle. Those Muller chokes really look the business.

    That was a great little video, I’d never understood the fractions (5/8) that people occasionally referred to but now it makes sense.

    Hi it is a great video. We appreciate your effort to eloborate about chokes. I have a Beretta 692 sporting. I would like to know which choke is preferred for lg rounds ?

    I can’t understand what this guy is saying!

    I shoot skeet with steel (Gamebore, 9 24g) I use Cyl and Cyl choke because steel patterns tighter than lead – using Skeet and skeet with it is like using IC/IC and thus is to tight. You should do a video on steel pattern and how tight it is for the shot compared to lead.

    I prefer the Homer Simpson choke…very tight and constricting.

    As a beginner with an O/U double barrel 12 gauge, I should use skeet, improved cylinder, and light modified? The tightest that would be used would be modified for trap?

    Excellent video!
    I own a Beretta 686 Sporting adjustable and I shoot skeet with steel. Gamebore 7 24g. I’ve been told that never exceed 1/2 choke using steel. Is then 1/2 choke optimal for the upper boar and 1/4 for the lower bore?

    Is there any relation between weight of the shell and number of the choke, please ? You are great.

    Nice video. I usually go for 1/4 & 1/2 but have messed about with 3/4 & Full for a challenge. I just shoot on a normal clay range but it is nice to be informed on chokes now and then as I have x5 chokes with my two guns and a fixed choke side by side (Spanish) which is probably 1/4 & 1/2 but not checked as yet. Anyway, great vid guys. Keep up the good work!
