A good choke-shot combo
Hey guys, so I have a moss. 500 with a skeet choke and I'm shooting 7.5's at 16 yards/20 yards and I have heard this is generally a combo for failure while playing a round of skeet, and I'm not having very good luck, so what do you think is a good combination?

I take it you are referring to informally shooting clay pigeons rather than the actual game of Skeet. The layout of a Skeet field puts the targets in the 21 yard range. That combination should actually work fairly well, but at that closer range you may want a cylinder choke instead. If you are shooting real Skeet, Skeet is the choke to have. While I would prefer 8s, I have been shooting 7-1/2s lately because they were what WalMart had on sale in both 12 and 20 gauge . When I miss I can blame the shells, but inside I know it's me. When I am on the bird, they break.
