I usually stick with a modified choke and 7-1/2 shot. A full choke might be better for my area though, but I'm just sure that the moment I change it, the birds will start coming in close and fast!

RE: I need to see some 30-30 pictures.

The first deer rifle I ever had was a Marlin 336 30-30 with see through mounts and a4x scope. I never had a problem with the see through mounts, but I guess it's all in what you get used to.

You don't really need the red light. White light works too, I've used both with good success.

As long as you're light isn't so bright you can see it from space it will work just fine.
