I took the old stock for my 870 express and cut it down to fit him so I am using my Grandpa's old 870 wingmaster with a fixed full choke and 2 3/4 inch chamber. I thought that full choke would throw a great pattern...I was wrong. I have tried just about every load out there in every shot size and nothing patterns well. As of right now federal 5's with flitecontrol wads are the best I can get, but even those aren't throwing a pattern that I am real impressed with. It will kill one but doesn't leave much margin for error. Shy of buying a new barrel with screw in chokes does anyone have any suggestions? The only thing I haven't tried is federal 6 shot with flitecontrol because I can't find any.
