I just got my first 28 gauge, a Ruger OU, and I'm wondering what choke tubes to go with on the skeet range. The ammo is 3/4 oz of 8's. I'm thinking SK/SK or IC/SK, but being that it's just 3/4 oz of shot do I need tp tighten up and to go to IC/MOD ?

I'm new with the 28 gauge, so I need some experienced 28 gauge shooter input. Thanks!!

I'm with Chic....005 (skt) in both is plenty. at 20 yards or less, you can smoke birds with the 28 if you are on them.

Cheers

I wish chokes could do more for me but if I put the .005's on them they break fine.

I have shot the Kolar fixed tubes and they are reported to be .005 and they have always done a great job.

I shot a Ruger for fun some and I used the skeet chokes. Done fine at regular and doubles. Remember it is easy to over choke when you don't need it.

Skt/Skt.

If you're shooting doubles on Stations 3, 4 and 5 you might want to screw an I/C in the top barrel, assuming you're shooting the bottom barrel first.

Your second shot on those will be farther away than normal Skeet distances and the slightly tighter choke may help.

Well , not to sound sarcastic,, but the name of the game is Skeet, and the chokes most use are marked Skt or SK. :lol:

Case, you must be doing something seriously wrong in your doubles - they should both be shot in the same place you shoot your singles... the distance won't change.

Personally, I break targets wherever I can. As long as a chip flies, I'm happy.

As for chokes, my SP V is currently choked mod/IC because I don't have SK/Sk and the cylinder bore got stepped on by some idiot :roll: :shock:

well....except for station 4....unless you're REALLY quick. The second shot on 4 is almost always shot past the stake, which isn't where you would shoot it for singles.

Shooting 'em as doubles, I'd like to see a video of you breaking both targets on station 4 before midfield. :shock:

Actually, I can do that... but my break % drops a bit, so I choose not to :)

I wasn't thinking of station 4 when I made that post. So, I'll revise, by adding "aside from station 4".

:)

If you can break the second target on 4 by midway from the center stake to the boundry stake thats still only a a 26 yd shot, .005 in a 28 is plenty of choke.

Of course logic and reason dictates that you're right, but I still have more confidence when using a .012" top choke, especially on that station. It just seems that better doubles scores and averages, and more success in shootoffs (in all gauges) were the result when using the tight top choke.

Win just one big shootoff against some of the top dogs while using it, and you'll have enough confidence to last you for years to come.

Sometimes confidence trumps logic, reason, and technicial advantage. :lol:

I had heard that George Lehr was able to, and had in the past, shot doubles in the middle with one move. That is to say that he didn't reverse the gun swing. I recently met George at the Great Eastern and he confirmed this although he did say that the lead on the second bird was really, really long. Didn't ask, but I'd bet that the second bird was broken before the center.

In my 28 when I shoot skeet I use IC/IC simply because I don't own any skt/skt chokes. The breaks I get are good, when I miss it ain't the choke.
