Thanks for the choke information, Brent. I didn't realize how thin the margins are... I have whatever comes standard on the 28" field barrel of the Maverick 88 - all it says is "accu choke". I'm guessing it's a "modified" choke tube?
Interesting about the mercury recoil reducers, Curly... I think I'm going to try the limbsaver and my homemade weighting first...
Exactly how much weight should I be trying to add to the hollow stock?
