Skeet Choke
 
Do you vary your chokes depending on enviroment/range or do you always use the same choke when shooting skeet?

not me but others...
 
I'm not advanced enough to know the different choke and what not, but I know of others that definitely change it.

I think it is more an advanced technique and the novice shouldn't' do it, but they may just be because I don't understand it too much.

What do you do?

The skeet choke is designed to give the best pattern at the distances you see in skeet, when using #9 shot. There should be no reason to go to a tighter choke unless you are trying to "test" yourself. But the best way to test, or make it more difficult, is to drop down in gauge. The 28 and .410 are quite a challenge.

Skeet choke
 
I find that a skeet choke (5/1000 constriction) works well in 12 ga. For 20, 28 and .410 I'll often just use cylinder bore - it hits plenty hard, and a broken bird is a dead bird - you don't have to see smoke.

choke
 
Usualy the choke for 12 ga. skeet is improved cylinder(skeet)shooting any other choke is a handicap but good for pratice

Actually skeet choke is more open that improved cylinder--it's about halfway between cylinder and improved cylinder.

The range does not vary in skeet. You are thinking of sporting clays or handicap trap.

Still a lot of good information out there. Some of us appreciate revisiting these old threads.
