    I have a NEF Pardner pump. I have Extra full,Cyl and IMP cyl. The gun has fiber rifle sights. I have a whole bunch of #7.5 or #8 shot bulk pack. Should I use that with the extra full choke?

    Yeah, I usually use 6, but it depends on the brush.

    Heavy brush use a heavier round, open areas you can go lighter.

    Modified or tighter usually.
