I finally got time to put this choke on paper. I would like to give some insight on my pattern test.

1. Patternmaster anaconda mid range choke for SBE 2
2. It was starting to get dark. I could clearly see target but not perfect lighting.
3. I quick measured my yardage so it may noy be perfect.
4. I shot free-hand. No rest.
Shot #1: 3.5" Winchester Blindside BB
40 yds: 84 holes

Shot #2: 3.5" Hevi-metal BB
40 yds 82 holes

I have an extreme range choke for goose hunting that patterns really tight at 40. The anaconda seemed a little sloppy but i would consider 40yds a stretch for mid-range. So....

Shot #3: 3" Blackcloud 3
30yds 162 holes!!!!!!

The box i shot at 30 yds was only 28"x30". When i shot i knew i pulled left of center. There were no holes on the right 3" of the box. Overall the group was 25"x27". This 3rd group with #3 shot was crazy! I bought this choke for duck hunting. I would like to try an anaconda long range. But for now my goose hunting budget is about whipped!
