It has an old poly choke that I generally keep at cylinder bore choke and I have been running 7/8 oz light target loads. I believe it was a 1934 gun IIRC. For some reason this gun and my 11-87 Remington lend themselves to hip shooting, at least for me. My one friend said I had to try for a third round, so we went and got another round paid for. Other two friends had to leave for the day. We went out and shot again, the wheels fell off for me on that round and dropped 3 birds, which is still great from the hip. The desk guy at the club gave me a 50 Straight patch, said I needed to get it embroidered with 'From the Hip' on the edge. I had been working at this for a long time, was hoping that my one buddy that I have been teaching skeet to for the last year would get his first 25 the same day as me running a round from the hip. He still had a very good day with a pair of 22's and a 23.
