    I have never seen that many, but I've seen a lot in one group. They will almost block out the sun. We used to shoot snows and blues and skin em. I fry em in a turkey frier after an all night marinade and a good rub. Shoot the dry parts up with a brine pump and some liquid garlic and/or onion.Fry em about 2 minutes per pound.

    Oh yeah I forgot, with steel shot I've had good luck with an improved cylinder choke.

    I know there is an extra full...is there a such thing as an "extra cylinder?"

    I think my little Winchester Mod 06 .22cal pump would work just fine :tooth:

    Do they make a belt-fed 10 gauge?

    One dozen 18 pounder cannon charged with 18 lb. canisters of appropriate shot. Give them a broadside when they come in range. Or a MOAB.

    Yep, but it's called Improved Cylinder.

    Actually an IC is a tighter choke than a Cylinder. I think a "Skeet" choke is the widest open choke you can get.

    I have no idea whether or not Skeet is the most open choke, but you're definitely right that IC (Improved Cylinder) is tighter than "Cylinder" (Bore).

    Cylinder is absolutely the most open choke (zero constriction) you can get (short of that ol' blunderbuss) - I don't even think you can get a "cylinder" choke tube from anywhere, the cylinder bore is most commonly encountered in smoothbore slug barrels or HD shotguns, or in any shotgun shortened more than the few inches of choked barrel at the muzzle.

    In order, if memory serves, the general constrictions are: Cylinder, skeet, improved cylinder, improved skeet, modified, full, x-full, "super"-full.

    Actually, you can buy a Cylinder choke tube from Trulock, maybe other places as well.

    There is one more that you omitted.............its called ' Damn!, I forgot to put a choke tube in'....

    ( Never used it myself but know a couple of people that have.)

    A choke of thirty thousandts will fall into which of these constrictions? This is the jugchoke in my new fowler, and I'm just wonderin'....

    My dad went on a hunt in Missouri one time..... he used a Model 12 with a poly choke on it. Three of them crawled up next to a field full of Snows behind a hedgerow. He twisted the choke all the way to cylinder. After they jumped up to flush the birds his Boss who was with him asked, " What the @#** are you shooting from that thing? Everytime you fired I saw blue sky open up!" They got 11 birds with 9 shots.

    Yes I know Improved Cylinder is tighter than cylinder, but flaring the muzzle to make it more open isn't going to spread the pattern. The flared Muzzle actually acted more as a funnel for loading, than as a choke. Modern testing has shown that the flared bore actually had no effect on spreading the pattern.

    Commercial hunters used to use a punt gun for something like that.
