Stock care: I have been using Renaissance wax to clean the stock after each use but I want to attempt a coat of boiled linseed oil. Any advice on properly cleaning the stock before applying the BLO?
Chokes: As of now, my choke selection includes two Skeet 1, one Light Modified and one Improved Modified thin wall choke tubes from Colonial Choke & Tool, below are my proposed setups:
Upland (pheasant & chukar) - skeet 1 for right barrel and light modified for left barrel
Skeet - skeet 1 for both barrels
Trap 16 Yard Singles - light modified for right barrel to start, improved modified when scores average over 20
Trap 16 Yard Doubles - light modified for right barrel and improved modified for left barrel
Trap Backyard / Sporting Clays (same setup as Upland) - skeet 1 for both barrels
Shotshells: Iím very focused on ďsaferĒ low pressure shotshells. For these choke options above I plan to use the following shells. I specifically chose shotshells with a 7/8 oz Ė 1 oz payload and under 1200 fps for less wear and tear. I canít seem to find pressure ratings on any of these shells but did email the manufacturers. Do these payload and velocity specs equate to lower pressure? Any and all advice is welcome on shotshell selection.
