    Order yourself the M, LM, IM, IC. Try them all out for yourself and your load of choice. For me and my 1301 using standard Remington 00 buck (green hull) and Range low recoil the IM made a huge difference in pattern.

    I sent an email to LTT, got a somewhat disappointing email back that said choke will affect pattern. Well duh no foolin'. I think it Ernest had answered I'd have my answer.

    Think I'll pony up for an IC choke and see how it does. Fed Flite Control rounds are unobtainable presently.

    Thanks for sharing your experience - just the sort of info I was looking for.

    I am a little surprised you had to go all the way to IM to optimize your results.

    As you progressed through tighter chokes was it a steady improvement with each choke, or was there a place where you got a quantum leap improvement?

    Thought I'd get back with my results. As davidjinks recommended, IM did the trick. The gun now patterns just the way I need it to. Thanks for all the input.

    It’s hard to beat the federal flitecontrol wad but those shells are hard to find. I’m going to experiment with different chokes to see if I can get better groupings.

    I purchased a Carlson’s extended, non ported, extra full choke (.693) for my 1301 to use on predators at 50-70 yards with smaller buckshot. Mainly #4 and sometimes 0BK. I will not be able to use that choke with slugs but I’ll let you know how it patterns when I shoot it.

    Lights are way easier to fire up than NODs when rolling out of bed.

    I don't love Botach, but i believe they have the Fed Premium 2 3/4" flite control 00 Buck in stock for $10/box. Not a good deal, as these used to be half that price, but looks to be available.
