People run more open on bottom cause itís usually a closer bird. Fire the under first because itís a more horizontal recoil, less muzzle rise puts you in target for second shot quicker. That being said some guys use over first. Hunt pheasant with a guy who uses over barrel first cause after a one shot kill, the gun doesnít have to be full open to reload over barrel making for easier reload....I think he is just a** backwards
