Ok - so given a range/yards and a
circle target diameter, a more open choke (say cylinder or skeet)
provides a less dense pattern (fewer shots) than a tighter choke tube
(say full choke). That means that a shooter can select a choke the will
provide a know shot density which is compatible with the target at a
give range./yards A very handy adjustment when you are shooting ducks at
15 yards today and 55 yards tomorrow.
does choke work? A shotgun barrel is basically a long pipe with the
chamber and shell at one end. At the other end is the opening where the
shot stream will exit. The exit end is where the choke tubes are
located. Within limit the tighter or smaller you make the choke tube
hole, the tighter the pattern at yardage.
There are a number of choke tube
manufacturers and a great deal of science and experimentation goes into
make a good shotgun choke. Geometry such as barrel length, barrel bore
and taper and choke restriction are the basics to choke tube design.
But, other factors such as material, length of barrel, shotgun choke
geometry, and finishes as well ammunition also impact a choke tubes
