IC year round never comes out/7.5 for dove and #4 for duck.

Donít think I have changed in over 10 years.

Early setup:
Top barrel IC #7.5/#8
Bottom barrel MOD #7.5

Late or white wing:
Top barrel MOD #6/#7.5
Bottom barrel IM #6.

Our place a couple years ago mostly had high flying white wings so I went to #6. Turns out that at a distance it doesn't mess up mourning doves' meat so I've been shooting it a lot more.

I shoot lefty so it's easier for me to shoot top barrel first.

My vintage 101 doesn't have screw in chokes, so I'm shooting it the way it came from the factory - Full/Mod and usually 7.5 shot

Most opening mornings or Mojo hunting if I'm using the 12, it's Skeet Choke and 8 1/2 spreader loads or #8 in the 20. Most hunting with the 20 or 12 with unknown hunting conditions or all purpose Dove hunting I prefer IC and 7 1/2 Field loads, but a skeet choke with an 8 1/2 spreader load is almost magical on close flying Dove.
