A short video of my take on choke selection and the situations in which you use them.

also for those not in the know:
cyl / cyl: 5 notches
imp cyl / 1/4: 4 notches
mod /1/2: 3 notches
imp mod / 3/4: 2 notches
full / full: 1 notch

not all chokes have notches on the rim though!- read the engraving to be sure, they'll all be engraved I should think except for the very cheapest (maybe).

every lead shot whether bird, buck shot or slug can be fired in any choke its all about pattern preference. use full choke for hunting. if you are playing like you like doing, then you can use those c, ic, m. Have you ever hunted before or you just waste armor on clays?

Hello, I expect the stupid comments below come from cowboys!! Anyway, thank you for your informative video, yes, I always use 1/2 & 1/4 also but sometimes during a shoot I wish I had time to change them. What I keep thinking about is, which barrel to use for the 1/4 or the 1/2? I usually use the 1/4 in the bottom and the 1/2 in the top I'm sure it may make no difference but would like it confirmed. I have a Browning 725 and when cleaning it without the chokes, it seems like one of the barrels (not sure which one now) is slightly tighter than the other, could this be?

Nicely explained without the over enthusiastic 'Show and Tell' almost shouting Style..and not an irritating loud 'Wassssssappp' anywhere lol. I shoot sporting so I have never used anything more than a Half and Quarter choke, I may experiment with a few of the other chokes since watching this though, but only briefly out of interest really, I may even have a go at trap shooting say, but generally I think 1/2 and 1/4 suits most sporting needs.
