 Post subject: Which choke tubes for skeet with a 28g O/U?

I normally shoot skeet with my 12 gauge and ,005 skeet choke tubes. I just purchased a 28g O/U and am wondering if I should use skeet choke tubes in this shotgun as well or is there something about the 28g and the way it patterns or the lesser amount of shot that would make using more/less choke advantageous? Also, Briley shows 3 different "skeet" chokes for my 28g which seems like a lot.

.003 light skeet
.005 skeet
.007 improved skeet

I know lots of people will just say shoot whatever chokes come with the gun, but my plan is to buy a couple of Briley extended choke tubes and I want to get it right the first time. I once read “they call the game skeet, not improved cylinder” which I found very telling, but thought I would get practical input from people who are more experienced shooting skeet with a 28g.

I suspect I will also be buying M and IM for 16 yard trap but that seems like it would be too tight for skeet.

Thanks in advance all.

I would make it simple with skeet/skeet. Worked for me for years.

That has been my initial thought as well Jim but thought I would tap the wealth of experience here before putting in my credit card number. :D

The others are often called "skeet in" and "skeet out"; that said, the basic skeet chokes should work fine. It did for me when I had my 1100 28 ga.

I would stay with "skeet" and "skeet".
Show me: JMO but I like extended chokes because not only are they easy to read and easy to change, but if the gun falls it's easier to deal with a bent choke tube than it is the end of the barrel.

Definitely agree that extended chokes are easier to read and much easier to change with or without tools if they have the knurled ends which the Briley's typically do. Plus, I think the extended chokes look kinda cool in an O/U. Only use flush for the SxS's because I like the more traditional look in those shotguns

Somebody asked which chokes came with the shotgun (Cz Redhead Premiere): it's the standard set C, IC, M, IM, F. They are all flush mount and quite honestly they look a little cheap. To be fair, extended chokes may not shoot any better than the stock flush mounts but anything that helps with the confidence, real or perceived, will help me breaks more targets I think. And, if I'm going to buy new chokes that gives me the option to buy chokes that dont come with the shotgun. I shoot skeet prolly 80% of the time and 16 yard trap the rest of the time so skeet tubes prolly make the most sense at this point, and then get M/IM when I've had a chance to shoot the flush mounted chokes at the 16 yard line. I think I will continue to use my Beretta 12g O/U for sporting clays though.

Thanks for the advice everyone, I really appreciate it!

Thanks for that clarification oneounceload, that makes perfect sense! A little more open for the "incoming" shots and a little tighter for the "outgoing" shot.

Unless you're a AAA shooter, you won't notice a difference with anything between cylinder and IC

Even then it is doubtful.
