I used to shoot Modified only because I don't have a Light Modifiied. I have been shooting Improved Cylinder lately and it seems to work very well unless the course has a lot of long shots.

Improved cylinder. It's amazing how far out this choke will work.

I typically have IC in both barrels. However, tomorrow I am going to use IC in the bottom and mod on top to see if I notice any difference.

Put a Mod in and be done with it. The size of the pattern will be determined by the bore diamater of you barrel.

So why put a choke in at all??

I was always sure that the choke changed the pattern.

Does a Modified with spreader loads for the less than 25 yard shots count as one choke?

National champion Anthony Matarese Jr uses one choke in his 391- a Pure Gold 15 which is light modified but really patterns modified.
I use the same choke but don't seem to get the same results.

If you read the literature provided with spreader shells it says using more than a cylinder choke will cause the pattern to perform in a full manner. I think this might scare the rabbit to death though.

I vote for Modified. Light Modified is good, too.

I think too much emphasis is put on worrying about which choke(s) to use. I try to put something in and leave it. Modified seems to work pretty well for me.

Modified and then forget about it. Shoot accordingly. Have fun.

There was nothing like that in any of the literature I read. I read that using spreaders in an open choke will NOT produce a super-open pattern.

Shootsinmaryland it was just a joke hence the scaring them to death comment. I used to use the Fiocchi spreaders with a negative choke but now rarely switch shells or chokes anymore. Speaking of Fiocchi remember do they still make Crushers I don't see Fiocchi offer around here.

PS shouldn't you be at Pintails super bowl blast? I over her in Naptown and couldn't go due to a knee injury.

IC with a relativley high speed, 1 oz. load of 7 1/2's will break anything.
