  9. hello, if you go back to the 1960s 1970s it was then most Eley grand prix 6s until we got those foreign carts like the Baikals, not sure which shooting book advocated choke sizes over decoys but the OPs question of 35 yards would be 1/4 choke and 6 shot although i had my first AYA bored out to improved/ half, interesting today though as i use most cheap 7.5s 28 g and tried those chokes in my O/U and did not pattern well so trying 3/4 and full,
