The 50 yard 10"plate hit count results, the manufacturer ,the shell length, and the shot size. Thanks.
Just a Little suggestion not to criticize or start an argument but as you have found out, all chokes act different on different guns with different shot sizes.
A shotgun that likes 7 1/2s normally doesn't like 2s or the bigger shot. One that likes 2s normally doesn't like 7 &1/2s.
What works on my shotgun may not work on yours, so you will just have to try different chokes and shot combinations to find what works for you, I have had shotguns that just would not shoot #2s
so they were dedicated to the #5 shot and smaller. fortunately my turkey/coyote shotgun likes the larger shot. for turkeys I use 3&1/2'' 2&1/4oz lead #4s in a extra full (.685 dia.) and a modified (.710 Dia. for steel, heavy shot and buckshot for best results.
In my case if the shot size and pattern are not repeatable "Every time" I don't consider it a good combination. also my preference is 60 yards max with an occasional 70 yard shot if I have no other option but never over 70 yards with my loads and the shotgun I use for this type of shooting.
We also have the option to use buck shot for the really long shots but I still limit my shots to 70 yards even though they will kill farther.
Good luck finding the right choke and shot.
