How do I choose the right chokes when switching from lead to steel shot?


This is a great question -- I think it is the number one question regarding chokes and steel shot. This chart below, courtesy of our friends at Briley, makes it very simple to understand. Pick out what you usually use with lead and see how it compares with the patterns it produces with steel shot.


Lead/Bismuth Steel/Tungsten
Cylinder Skeet
Skeet Improved Cylinder

Light Modified Improved Modified
Modified Full
Improved Modified Extra Full
