Skeet shooters

Hey,

 

I'm starting to shoot skeet more and I shoot with IC chokes. I'm shoot a steady 22 on the field now. Would it be worth the money to purchace skeet chokes. I know there is a differance in the pattern but is there that much of a differance.

 

thanks

You may see a marginal benefit. However if your dialed in with your shooting it wouldnt matter if you had a mod choke in or cylinder, you would just see a lot more powdered birds. I am only an occasional trap and skeet shooter so for skeet I still use IC, if I got into a league then the skeet cylinder choke would be the better choice.

Save your money. I've purchased a couple Benelli Skeet tubes over the past year and they are identical in diameter to the IC tubes. The only reason I bought them was my Renaissance came with only IC, Mod and Full tubes and my brother bought a used Franchi 720 which only had the Mod. tube. I shoot 8-10 rounds of skeet a week and any choke between cylinder and IC is just fine. I have a couple O/Us and SxS guns with fixed IC/MOD barrels and TMAC is right, the MOD tube does just fine, it just grinds them finer.

Skeet chokes should be 0.005 constriction, or about 0.725 ID.

 

IC is just a hair tighter.

 

When I shoot skeet with a 12 gauge, which is almost never, I shoot cylinder chokes.

 

Will it get you a bird that you wouldn't have gotten with an IC choke? I doubt it.

 

BTW, an 88% average, if you're just starting out, is pretty good.

 

If you really want to step your game up, get the video by Todd Bender from Sunrise Video. Excellent video for skeet shooting.

i use a modified, the same choke i hunt with. it seems to keep me a on my toes. it also seems to make the clays a little harder to hit. i kind of enjoy the challenge. and have used a full just for grins. there is no right or wrong really. its all about having a good time, and doing what ya like.

i can usually shoot a 22 or better and i like to see dust rather that just 2-3 pieces so i use the full choke.

i dont try to shoot 2' out of the trap house either i like to let um peak in altitude then turn um into dust.

alot of the other guys i know use the mod choke.

i shoot skeet with a modified, some times a full just spice it up. the only advantage i can see in a skeet tube vs a i/c or mod , is you can get them a little faster off the thrower,if your doing good with what you got, why change?my worst score with a mod is 88/100, my best is 96/100. "if it aint broke, dont fix it"
