    I wouldn't go much tighter than Improved Cylinder. Buckshot does not respond to tighter chokes in the same way that birdshot does. If you're looking for extended range out of buckshot, ammo selection is your best bet. Go with Federal loads using the Flitecontrol wads. I've found that the 00 buck patterns tighter than the 000 and the 00 Tactical (reduced recoil) loads do much better than the full-power loads. That's my guns. The Flitecontrol wads work much better with no restriction (cylinder bore choke). You should try different loads to see what patterns best in yours.
