Default constriction?

The choke I use on my gun says .575
The choke for my friends gun is .665

Is my choke too tight. I hear a lot of guys talking about chokes, and the general consensus is .665 is a good choke.

my gun is a win 1300. it patterns really well. my choke is an undertaker choke. What do you guys think?

just curious.

The .575 sounds more like a choke rated for a 20 gauge. I had a 1300 a few years back and it liked the .665 as well. You could always mic the inside diameter to be certain, but I don't think they make a choke that tight, (.575) for a 12 gauge. I could be wrong there, but I don't think so.

I use a Remington 870 SPS-T 12 gauge, 21" barrel, Kick's Gobblin' Thunder choke tube in .665. I shoot #5 shot through it.

.575 is a common turkey constriction for 20ga. if its a 20ga it shouldnt screw into your gun or it may be a 12ga that is marked wrong. if it is a 12 ga tube and the constriction is .575, DONT SHOOT IT. You'll end up killing yourself and anyone near you cause your barrell will explode in spectacular fashion.

It says right on the choke .575, it also says for 12 ga. I put quite a few shots through it already, it patterns fine. was just curious.

BTW I did mic it and it is what it says.

good luck with the choke RBH. be careful with it though, check it often for swelling or cracks.
