Default shotgun choke

hey was up guys! quick question new to skeet i wanted to know i am training my self to use modified and light modified as my chokes and i know they are used for 25-30 yard range.. also i know at that close of a range it's pretty hard i am doing ok with those chokes, my whole idea behind using these two chokes it just to make it a bit harder and once i get good with these then the other chokes will me a bit easier i guess.. everyone i know uses cylinder for the skeet targets ^_-

but i wanna know any of you guys use modified or light modified to shoot sporting clay's like skeet that close up?

Using a tighter choke for practice can improve your scores when you decide to open them up. For most sporting clays events, I stick with IC and LM

Yep, M & M for practice, IC & LM in an SC tournament.

All skeet shots are 22 yards if you break them at the midpoint between the houses. You can use anything for fun. I use a full choked .410 frequently and with pretty good results. Nothing changes in skeet. The throwers are fixed. Once you figure out the leads, you can get quite good very quickly. When I used to do club shoots, I would typically use tighter chokes for practice and open them up for the shoot.

Are you shooting skeet or sporting clays? Shooting with a more restrictive choke in either game will help improve accuracy.
