latest answer
I use 1 ounce of #8 from 16-27.  I change chokes as I move back from the 21.  LM from 16-20, M from 21-24, f from 26 to the back line.  This is also a personal preference.  Try diffeerant loads, shot and chokes to see how they effect your shooting.

Makes a huge difference if the guns have difference in weight. I went from shotting my 9 lbs Remington to shooting a 7 lb Benelli and the swing weight was way off for skeet. Trap and sporting clays may be a bit different.
