I bought a HTs Lusso fixed choke a couple weeks ago and hit the pattern board today,,,
Bornaghi Gold, 7.5, 1250 FPS, .734 bore, .020 bottom barrel .028 top
30 yards, 20in pattern with the .020, 18in with the .028
Seems a little tight...? Very few fliers

Try another couple brands of shells and see how they do.

Sounds about right. Perazzi are choked tight.

Well I finally got a chance to shoot it yesterday, the closer shots are definitely more interesting
the longer ones were fine, love the gun 8/11oz, swings great. Trying spreaders next time out

I have found ALL fixed choke Perazzis shoot a tighter pattern than the markings on the choke.

I have spreaders for close-ish targets.

Briley , Wilkenson , etc can change this to almost anything you want.

I agree with your Perazzi choke observations. Mine is 16 and 24 but patterns tighter than the Lt. Mod and Imp. Mod standard.

Sounds like FULL and X-FULL to me, but look at the bright side... it would make an excellent "turkey shoot" gun. :wink: :D :D

Never sent the barrels in, I’m still undecided on opening up my current configuration or thin walls

I believe that you could have the current chokes opened up (at very little cost). Then, if they don't prove satisfactory to your liking, you could have the thin walls put in. However, once you have the thin walls put in, you can't go back to fixed. That's why I would suggest opening the chokes to what you think you would like and try that for a good while. It's your gun and your decision, of course.

I have a shooting buddy , named Gus. Gus sent his pigeon gun , a Fabbri to Briley for thin walls. The other guys were questioning Gus's sanity and I reminded them that Gus could buy Fabbri w/ his pocket money.

They all said , "yup , that's right, and he should do exactly what he wants."

FWIW, I had LM's in for the last shoot and 8's (I'd cleaned the chokes and forgot to put them back in my truck) and I did just fine , even on two 60 yd shots (2d shots on a SS single).

We often overthink all this.

Overthinking this is an understatement,,,,I know these barrels are tight, knowing this lends to rifle shooting it on certain targets. In my head,,,,,I know this.
More open choked guns (.15/.15) I tend to relax more and my scores show this
I had the barrels boxed up, tried to call Lucio twice but no call back so he’s out.
Still in the box and shooting a different gun now

I recently watched a World Champion talk about chokes. He describes a shoot-off in the World Fitasc finals. He bested the other 2 previous World Champions by a few birds on what he describes as the most difficult targets he ever saw. He knew he didn't want to be under choked and thought he had installed .24's. After he was done he realized he 'accidentally' left in a pair of .15 chokes when he thought he had .24 chokes in his barrel. He says the others said they had .30's in both barrels. But he also said everyone lies about chokes. lol.

I also have a new HT that I haven't been able to shoot in a competition yet. It is fixed and the pattern board says tight and tighter.

Barrels are on there way back from Briley, 2xSkeet, 2xLM, 2xM, and 1 IM.
Ben Avery should be opening up soon so we’ll see how they shoot

Please keep us posted. I'm very curious of the difference from factory to thinwalls.

I've run into this type of situation several times as have many other shooters. IMO, leave the gun as is, and use spreaders and if your in "no man's land", outside of effective spreaders, but still too tight for that true pair of incoming/crossing tgts. where one hits the dirt at 16 yds. and the other at 24 yds., go to a 1 1/8 oz. promo load that you think is not very good for the tgt. that's in the dirt @ 24 yds...........dead a pair. Or, just buy the Fiocchi spreader of 1 1/8 oz. @ 1250 fps. and shoot it at the 2nd. tgt, - they are a tighter spreader out of my Pguns.

I have had the same experience patterning my gun with good stuff, promo shells and spreaders. It amazes me how the patterns open up as you move to the promo shells and then the spreaders. Number of my friends have had the same results. I forget what pro shooter said this: “ there is no ammunition out there that I can out perform!”
