  Tests using Hart O/U with modified chokes.  Following tests were shot using 2.75 drams (72 grains) of Goex FFFG.  The shot charge was 1 1/8 ounce of 7 1/2s; which is the equal volume of powder.  One over the powder wad and one over the shot wad.  No cushion wad was used:

   This load is significantly tighter than a full choke load which would produce 70% patterns at 40 yards.
