A brief guide to chokes

The art of shooting a shotgun has been debated since shot shell was invented. In 1868 Sylvester Roper invented the choke and things became really interesting. Hopefully this guide will help those looking for an answer on what a choke is and what to use in particular situations.


Since shotshell is subject to spread, it only makes sense that someone would invent a way to manipulate the spread so we have options depending on the type of shooting you are doing. 



What is a full Choke Pattern?

A full Choke Pattern is essentially 70% of your shot in a 30″ diameter at 40 yards. These are your optimum parameters for shooting a shotgun.

How do I know which choke is in my gun without taking it out?

Every choke has a marking on one end. Each manufacture varies slightly but as a general rule you will see the following:

Choke Type Identification (Notches) UK:

Full Choke: I notch

3/4: II notches

1/2: III notches

1/4: IIII notches

Skeet: IIIII notches

What is the coverage of each choke?

  • Super-Full and Extra-Full Chokes – This has very tight constriction and a dense pattern, delivering approximately 80 per cent of a cartridge’s total pellets in a 30″ circle at 40 yards. 
  • Full Choke – This has tight constriction and a dense pattern, delivering approximately 70 per cent of a cartridge’s total pellets in a 30″ circle at 40 yards.
  • 1/2 Choke – This choke is characterised by less constriction than full choke, delivering approximately 60 per cent of a cartridge’s total pellets in a 30″ circle at 40 yards.
  • 1/4 – Even less constricted, this choke distributes approximately 50 per cent of a cartridge’s total pellets in a 30″ circle at 40 yards.
  • 3/4 – Even less constricted than half choke, this choke distributes approximately 50 per cent of a cartridge’s total pellets in a 30″ circle at 40 yards.
  • Cylinder Bore (0pen) – This has no constriction and distributes approximately 40 per cent of a cartridge’s total pellets in a 30″ circle at 40 yards.  
  • Skeet Choke – This is a speciality choke that sends approximately 50 per cent of a cartridge’s total pellets in a 30″ circle at 25 yards. This type is designed to deliver optimum patterns for close-range skeet shooting.
