Thanks Ozzy appreciate your time and your videos.

Thanks Ozzie, really increased my understanding of chokes, can we expect any under and over reviews in the near future?

Thanks for that demonstration, had a fair idea regarding chokes and patterns etc, however that practical demo fine tuned my thinking, know it must have been time consuming for you.

Ozzie I thought there was no evidence on the solids, as they are smaller than the chokes anyway?

Another great video mate. This is definitely the stuff new shooters search for and previously couldn't find easily explained. You're a true asset to our sport/hobby.

Great video Ozzie! I’ve been thinking about buying a shotgun and this video has answered a lot of questions

It's always good to see video like this, that explain what some of us might be 'rusty' on,....I am, as I don't do much shotgun shooting, this is good to know.

G'day Ozzie great video, very informative. I'm looking into getting a 12g for knocking over close foxs whilst whistling. I can't choose between a under and over or a straight pull/lever action. What would you choose and why.

Thanks Ozzie, great information and well presented. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to shoot and show the Patterns. My Mate has a 20" Stoger 12G side by side and I have an under over 24" Savage 24 223/12G. What difference do these barrel lengths make in Shotguns? I originally had Full choke and it pattered 00 Buckshot really well at 25Y, but I experienced doughnut patterns where the centre thinned with AAA and BB. Due to targeting small game, I now have a modified choke and will pattern that with different shot as well. Have you experienced being over choked?

What model miroku is that and does it get the Ozzie tick of approval?

Nice video. Getting ready to head out with my 20 guage, modified choke, pump action with #5s to try and kill some rabbits with a good pack of beagles

Just recently picked myself up an under over Stoeger Outback tactical and this is some great info, cheers 👍

Thanks for another great video Ozzie. The explanation of what chokes to use with steel shot and solids was particularly helpful mate, Cheers. :)
