Try your stock flush chokes first , with good ammo , I would suggest IC or if you have one LM .

Then you would be able to decide for, yourself ! Knowing the distance you normally shoot ( with accuracy ) your birds .

Don't be a fool and buy a tight choke that will handy-cap you from killing birds , you normally kill !

You want one choke that will be good for any shot from 15 to 50 yards?
I've got some bad news for you....... :no:


Now that that's out of the way, one would have to assume that the majority of your shots will be somewhere in the middle of those extreme ranges. If that is indeed the case, go with the Modified.
Actually, 3200 gave you some very good advice.

Thanks I guess I could get a full and shot it if Im going to be long range hunting and shot modified. But I will pattern the stock chokes it will be a while though

As 3200 & Muddy said, pattern what you have first, before going to other options.

IMO, the best way to cover 15-50 yards simultaneously, is to have a shotgun with two (2) barrels, one choked close and the other, far. The Brits have been doing such for ~150 years.

I shoot Kicks High Flyer chokes in IC, MOD, and Full out of my Vinci with Kent 3" 1 1/4 #2's (1425 fps) exclusively. Each choke has its uses and application, but you should be honest with yourself about how far most of your shooting and ability is. Like the others have said, don't handicap yourself with a more constrictive choke. Unfortunately one choke will not do it all.
