I've been wondering if one of the choke tubes I already have will get the job done on yotes because most of the purpose built tubes are so expencive. So how much constriction the various chokes that you guys are useing on yotes have. Time to get out the calipers and take some measurements. I need the inside diameters of both ends of the choke or just subtract the muzzle measurement from the rear measurement.

What you need to do is pattern your shotgun to see what your getting, thats really the best way. Use the shells you'd use to hunt and set it up for whatever range you think you would take a shot at, then go from there.

I know about patterning. I'm just trying to get an idea of how much constriction is typicaly used in purpose built predator chokes.

I remeasured mine today. The inlet actually measures .740 and the outlet is still the same at .680
