Gas ports in the barrel get easily clogged by a wax like substance that prevents enough gas to pass though and operate the piston properly. These holes must be cleaned with a degreaser and a small stick or wire until they are absolutely clear. This mus...

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.
