Default Mossberg 500 28 inch barrel modified choke good for clay?

Good morning everybody! today i will be going up against a remington 870 with a screw in choke improved cylinder 28 inch barrel, we will be shooting trap and skeet at my local shooting range the looser has to buy lunch. I dont really want to buy lunch but this is the first time ill be using my mossy my mossberg 500 is going to be equipped with a 28 inch barrel that has a MODIFIED choke built into the barrel i cant screw in different chokes so this is the only choke i can use modified choke vs improved cylinder choke which is better? He keeps calling mine a mossturd but is this barrel good for bird/clay?

357,

Sorry to say he has the definite advantage. Skeet guns normally have a Improved or a Special Skeet Choke. Trap Guns traditionally have a Full Choke or Special (tighter) Trap Chokes. However to make the bet fair, demand that he only use his Modified Choke (if he has one) in his shotgun to compete for the lunch on both fields! If he uses the Improved Cylinder for Skeet mandate he use it on the Trap Field! That should more than even out the score. Unless he is lightning fast on the Trap Field you should have a slight advantage there!

Will a modified choke bust clays? Yes. You just have to let the bird get a little further out compared to an improved cylinder or skeet choke. Wait for the bird to get 25 to 30 yards out.

How much clay shooting experience do you have compared to the other shooter? That may be where the real advantage lies. Have you patterned your gun? Do you know if it hits high, low, left or right? Different loads that open patterns faster could have an advantage or help even the field. If you are going up against a more experienced shooter who has more practice and familiarity with his own gun, and you are going out for the first time with yours, unfired, you are already at a handicap. I wouldn't bet anything until I did a few boxes of ammo.

Well he is my stepdad before i bought my mossberg we just used the remington 870 and took turns with it, i wanted my own and decided to get the mossberg 500 because it was only 367$ at big 5 and came with 2 barrels im thinking its a mossturd but its my mossturd and im proud of it no i havent shot it or patterned or shot it yet our range only allows us to use #8 birdshot i think. we currently use remington sport loads so im not sure what ammo is best for me im kinda wishing i bought an 870 but the mossy was a better deal oh well im not complaining im happy with my first shotgun.

We both have about the same skill set. we take turns with the 870 but he gets out and shoots a tad bit more with it. hes only gone about 5 or 6 times the past 3 years without me, he is a little more familiar with disassembling and cleaning it iv sat and watches but im more familar with handling and shooting it so its mostly a draw so its remmy vs mossy we will see wich is the better shotgun im worried my mossy will lose though because we have been using the remmy for about 3 years but we shall see.

get ready to buy lunch! he's shot with the 870 and so have you, but now you're using a shotgun that is unfamiliar to you and he's using one that he knows. you're at a disadvantage.

there is only one thing that makes a person a better shooter and that's trigger time. so, for the most part, the person who shoots more, ususally is going to be a better shooter.
