Has anybody ever tried to shoot skeet with an extra full choke. :lol: Been dying to try this. I would like to try it to be right on those targets when I shoot compitition with a skeet choke, also I like turning those clays into dust :D . I would like to hear more opinions about this.

I shoot trap in the backyard with my turkey choke every once in a while. Let them get out there a little ways. It smokes em.

The concept has merrit, but I don't think I'd go with the X-Full - maybe Mod. Then shoot Cyl or Skeet in competition. I do something similar at trap for singles practice. I shoot 16 yd practice with an I/M or Full choke to try to tighten up my shooting. Then, when I shoot 16 yd competition, I go to Mod choke to give myself the maximum margin of error.

Like TAL/IL, I think it's a good concept but would first, like he says, start with a more open choke; then if you want, use progressively tighter chokes as time goes on and you become a more accurate shot.

If more skeet and trap shooters would do this, they would become more accurate shooters more quickly. At times, many have the impression that acuracy isn't all that important considering the spread of patterns. Unfortunately, they are correct only some of the time.

I've done it with a 686 in extrafull on the high house. The shot took the center of the bird out without breaking the rest of the target! I could see the wad sailing right through the middle.
Want real fun? Try a round with a contender in .410.

When I started shooting in the UK mnay years ago, one of the top sporting shots was man called AJ Smith. His nickname (to this day) is 'Smoker' Smith.

He went from trap to skeet and did not change guns. (In those days we had fixed chokes only) It was an ink blot when he hit the clay, which he did regularly :lol:

Then he went to Sporting Clays and took a whole lot of prizes. Nowadays as a Veteran he is shooting everything FITASC, and cleaning up there as well.

It certainly teaches you to be precise in shot placement :roll:
