I have a mint winchester mod 12 made in the 1950`s with a IC choke, I don`t hunt, but do shoot clays, what would be the best use for it?

skeet
sporting clays
16 yard trap

It would do well for all

For trap you might need a cheek pad

I shoot either Remington's (they are shorter) or 2 1/2 inch reloads for positive ejection

Great gun! Use it and enjoy it. If you don't want it later on I would love one choked like that

If it does eject your chosen shells why not shoot it at any clays game you enjoy? Mine's a Mod choked gun and although it's primarily a hunting gun for me I had a great time shooting 5-stand with it this year at a club where it was OK to shoot at pieces of clays you'd already broken.

OK, now I understand,

I would use it for Dove hunting, quail hunting, duck hunting, pheasant hunting, skeet, trap, sporting clays, and all general tasks except goose and sandhill crane.
I seems to be the perfect hunting gun in these days of non-tox requirements.

Great gun
Mike

IMHO,

Improved Cylinder is the most versatile & perhaps under rated choke for a shotgun.

encouraging info, may try it out. so far I use an IC A5 on skeet, a mod Ithaca 37 on trap and a marlin 90 on sporting clays, may try the winchester on 5 stand or may sell it for something choked more to my liking. Modified is my favorite.

I'd be curious to know what your IC choke measures. The Modified 16ga M12 barrels I've measured have been .009-.011"

it measures .660 which I think is .007 constriction

I had mine opened to IC. Use it for everything. Find a good patterning shell or recipe, and have at it. If you consistently miss.....don't blame the choke. I've seen guys shoot 28ga. guns choked skeet/skeet all day long on a the sporting clays course and consistently hit in the 60's....and these guys are not clays specialists (no offence fellas).
