Congrats on your new 10 :thumbsup: I hope it serves you well for many years to come. :beer: If you decide to fine tune your patterns, you may (or may not) want to look at Trulock chokes. They make some fine chokes for the Mighty 10 (IMO). Check out Manventure Outpost they sell them for around $30 . I have the IM ,IC, and Full in my 10's. My BPS 10 loves T shot (1 1/2 oz at 1450 fps) with the IC Trulock tube.

I shoot my friend's sometimes. It had a hard pad at first, now wears a limbsaver, that tamed the bite.

It has always had me scratching my head as to why Browning continues to put a solid rubber pad on their BPS10. The unfortunate part of it is Limbsaver does not offer a pad to fit this gun. Also, if your BPS has a synthetic stock, installing a better pad or cutting it for correct LOP is difficult. To do it right, it is strictly a grind to fit custom operation. With my last BPS10 which was my son's gun, I fitted a Limbsaver pad but the fit was poor but it got the job done. The recoil pad on the BPS is its only negative feature that is hard to correct.

I don't have one of the newer 10s, bought the Ithica Mag 10 many years ago, and it is still killing geese for me every year.
Now I have a Beretta A400.
If I can drive to the spot I'm hunting, and if i will be shooting ducks as well as geese, I have both guns with me, but if I have to lug everything any distance by hand, the A400 does duty for both.
I will never sell the 10 ga. as it seems to me the geese come down just a little quicker with it over the 12ga......sometimes!
Early season birds come down with either gun, just like they hit the same wall.

I shot my new 10 gauge today and that thing is awesome!! It kicks way less than the SBE2 I had. I'm excited to play around with different loads and chokes! :beer:

Over the years, I have gone through several 10ga chokes. The ones I still have are the 720 Terror, 705 Terror, 727 Browning Extended and CompNchoke full. My go to choke is the 745 Briley X2. The Briley seems to be less particular about its diet and shoots all loads well. My favorite factory fodder is the Estate ammo with Federal running second. I recently picked up a case of Win Drylock Supreme 1 3/8oz #2s to try. I have not shot any of them yet. I mainly shoot my reloads in 1 1/2oz #1s but still like to have some factory ammo too.

From memory, I would say about 5 to 6 inches high at 40 yards shooting a 1 1/2oz load of #1s at 1450fps. I normally always pattern at 50 yards where its maybe 3 inches high. At 60 its right on. The drop on the above load is about 7.5 to 8 inches at 60 yards.

Yep, center of pattern in all my Browning 10s. Did not see this much elevation of patterns with my Sp10s. The Brownings are all this way as far as the ones I have owned and patterned. They are designed to shoot this way as being a long range waterfowl gun. On closer shots, the bird will still be in the pattern if you are on target. When shooting a Browning 10, I forget about pellet drop, just aim and shoot. I have no complaints with this being a design of the gun.
