What chokes do you have ? I have a 1300 featherweight with several winchokes from cyl through to full and found modified throws OO buck pretty well.There must be plenty of old winchokes still kicking about at gun shops and shows.cheers KIWIAm new here and just caught the thread. I have the Win. 1300 Upland model in 12 gauge bought back around 99. Wanted something for Upland bird and to use with buckshot for deer. I found the shorter barrel of 24 inches is making my buckshot patterns open up too quickly. Can anyone recommend a load which is designed to keep a tighter pattern at say 20-25 yards? I hunt in heavy brush mostly hence the buckshot loads over slugs. It uses screw in chokes and I heard Carlson puts out a Coyote choke which holds a tight pattern for extended range.
