Wish he would have done that test through a cylinder bore.

As shown in the review velocity is the biggest factor in keeping the pattern tight, aside from fancy wads that stsy with the pellets for a long time. Instead of messing with chokes on a certain load i mess with loads on a certain choke. Cylinder bore of course.

Ive found winchester ranger low recoil patterns nicely. @ 25 yards its doing a lovely 14in pattern.

I dont even test the expensive loads as i cant afford mass quanities of them.
