Using my 835 Ulti Mag with a 24" barrel for dove this weekend. It has the factory ulti full choke in it already. What load should I shoot through it to get good accuracy or should I get a new choke to go with a certain load? First time dove hunting this year.

Any hunting loads with #7-#8 size shot should work fine with the choke you have.... it may be a little loud on the ears with that short of barrel though.

My 2 cents buy a new choke that one will be throwing a tight pattern I would go with an improved cylinder or modified and some 7 shot

It really depends on type of setup.... whether he will be making close/quick shots in a small open area amongst trees or hunting a wide open field taking longer shots.

I have shot a 26" barrel with XX Full & HV #9 shot... worked great.

I will occassionally shoot a full choke at doves as well, but only certain times. For a first time dove hunter though, get an improved cy. Lot more room for error.
