I have posted info on here about the 10 gauge but I don't think I was ever bragging. (I hope not). The 10 gauge is a fine shotgun (in the right hands) for waterfowl hunting when shooting steel shot. I know one does NOT NEED a 10 gauge to kill waterfowl but for my hunting style it works the best for me. There are a lot of disadvantages to the 10, some will say that it is too heavy for them,some may say it has too much recoil, some may say the ammo is too much $ ect...ect... The 10 also has advantages (for me ), better patterns with steel shot, bigger pay loads of steel shot, less recoil (auto). I also use a 12 gauge and the 20 during the waterfowl season but not as much as the 10. I have heard of hunters that use the 410 for waterfowl. Any way you look at it they all have ups and downs. Use what works the best for you and welcome to the world of the Mighty 10.gmkempf wrote:I am hear to tell you that all of you guys out there that were bragging on the Mighty 10 were 100 percent right.
The one choke that really shines in either the Gold10 or SP10 is the Briley .745 Extended choke. I have used this one constriction for years and its my choice over all other chokes for the 10ga. Some will say the Terror .720 is the superior choke tube. I have one of those too. Both are a great choice but the Briley is my favorite to date. If you order a Briley, be sure and specificly ask for the .745 constriction as its the sweet spot. Mine are for the Browning and are marked INVX10 GA.
I have three 10ga Briley chokes. Two are the older ones stamped IM on the knurling. I have a later made one that is stamped LF on the knurling. All three measure exactly .745. From my phone converstation with the Briley tech reps, if I would order one stamped IM I would get a .750 constriction.
