IC for skeet?

Recommended Posts

Just got an Affinity for my birthday. Shot a couple of rounds of trap last Saturday with my son, and did well enough to have fun. Now I would like to try some skeet. I heard that you need an open choke, such as a skeet choke. Since I am only shooting for fun and to practice for hunting, not for competition, I really don't want to buy another choke if I don't need to. Will an Improved Cylinder work for skeet?

I picket up a Cordoba for Sporting clay and skeet and had similar questions. The answer I got from the guys at the range said the best way to know is to pick your ammo and pattern the gun with different cokes to see which fits the bill best. If you just out to have fun and just starting they said focusing on technique will have a greater impact than getting caught up in chokes. So I just put in my IC and had fun. For sporting clays I went with an LM choke and don't change. I am working more on technique right now. I know someone with more experience can pick my gun up and outshoot me, tells me there is ground to be made up without getting caught up in other factors.

Thanks for the reply. I think you're probably right. I'll work on my technique with an IC for now and worry about the rest later. I've been using Mod for trap and it seems to work fine.

 

BTW, I love the Affinity so far. Beats my old shotgun by a mile!

For what it's worth, IC is my preferred choke for skeet. Unless you're a professional or ultra-serious shooter it isn't really necessary to spend a pile of money on chokes other than the ones that come with the gun. They'll usually meet your needs.
