I just got a yildiz youth 20. Put a limbsaver pad and ordered sumtoy 562 and 575 chokes. Going to run tss 9s in 562 and 3rd degrees in 575
Planning on shooting when I get chokes
I’ll let you know how it does

patterning pics for yildiz 20ga youth over/under.  these were shot standing with no triggerstick or lead sled so some are slightly off center target but you get the idea.

top barrel is sumtoy 562 shooting apex tss 9s 3inch
bottom barrel is sumtoy 575 turkey targets are federal 3rd degree 3inch
one square splatter target is bottom barrel at 20 yards with heavy dove load #6
four turkey targets are:
top left bottom barrel at 10
top right bottom barrel at 20
bottom left top barrel at 30
bottom right top barrel at 40 yards

based on patterning i will probably use Nitro or Apex TSS #9 in top and a Hevishot #7 in bottom for close shots

overall i was very pleased with this little 20ga.  I did swap out the factory butt pad for a limbsaver

  I use a tristar 20 o/u     I use a turkey choke in the top barrel  with mag blends ... a modified in the lower with lead sixes for those under 25 shots..... good results up close or out there.  why handicap yourseld with two turkey chokes  when the  majority of the bird shot at less than 30 yds

I replaced bottom with 585 sumtoy which is opened it up. Shooting a #6 golden pheasant in bottom and Hal 2oz hand load tss in top. Probably try a hand load 6 or 7 with a brush or spreader wad
