WHICH BARREL SHOULD YOU SET UP WITH A CHOKE YOU WANT TO SHOOT FIRST IN AN OVER AND UNDER, THE TOP OR BOTTOM, AND WHY?

Set whatever barrel you want to shoot first if you have choke tubes, just use the more open chokes for the first shot and tighter ones for the follow up. If you have fixed chokes you will want the more open choke first as that shot is typically the closer one and the tighter pattern will hold longer for the second shot. The barrels are regulated to have the patterns meet at 40 yards on most guns. You will typically find the top barrel to have a tighter choke on fixed guns also. By far the best thing you can do is get out and pattern the gun, shoot at a 30 inch circle at 40 yards and see what it does and where each barrel shoots. You will gain more info from that than anything else.

You want to shoot the under barrel first. This is because it is lower and more in line with the stock, therefore the recoil will be directed straight back with less muzzle jump. Less muzzle jump will theoretically allow you to get back on the target faster for a second shot with the top barrel if needed.

Thank-you, I've been shooting this way, the bottom barrel first, top second, with the more open choke on bottom, I just never knew if that was correct and why. I appreciate the response!

My O/U shoots bottom barrel first. I never thought about switching it, but maybe cause it shoots just the way I like.

I have sxs guns now but when I had O/U's I shot the bottom barrel first, generally. It seemed to have less muzzle jump.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
