The choke operates just like an adjustable nozzle on a garden hose .The more open chokes [like cylinder] spreads out the shot for close range shooting such as grouse. The tighter chokes [like full] concentrates the shot and are for long range shots on things like goose.The different size shots are for different sized game ,#8s for things like dove , BB for things like goose.
