FWIW I got around to reading the write-up in American Rifleman that showed the constrictions of the factory chokes as .008", .012" and. 045" and a 66 percent pattern from quality shells and only .012" of Modified choke. Something less than .045" should be useful as a true Full constriction.

I have a sweet sixteen on order (hope to get by may, yikes)
Anyways have had the same findings with chokes as was said here. I emailed Trulock earlier this year before I ordered my gun, just got a generic response that they do not have them for the 16. Hopefully that changes, all my guns have Trulocks and are good tubes. That being said, Browning does offer a IM and light Full tube for the 16 DS. Both are steel shot approved and the IM has a .023 constriction. I'll probably get both. I'll pattern and see how they do, but for me an IM is my all round pheasant-waterfowl choke. Although I have a favorite 16 ga steel load (hits 1600+) and I want to see how the LF patterns with that load on 3 shot.
Here's to hoping George starts turning 16 DS chokes. He definitely has the best chokes for the price bar none.
