PatternMaster Choke

Postby DuckSlayer6931 » Fri Dec 29, 2006 3:06 pm

I was wondering if anyone out there uses a pattern master choke? If so, what do you think of them?

I have one for every scatter gun that i own. I love them and everyone i hunt with uses them. They are not for all conditions though. So iff you buy one make sure and pattern your gun to see what benefit if any that it gives you.
If ya don't like being peppered, don't set up near my spread..!!!!!

I have used one for years on divers and other shooting that averages over 25 yards or so. In my M1 Benelli it is the BOMB!

pattern it against your factory chokes when you get it. a few pics of patterns would be great for on the forum.

Went to a lot of other duck post for more info............

The PM choke does real well at the longer range shots, mostly with bigger size steel.

Not much info on close range with small pellets like # 5 & 4's however.........?

Most of the hunters were still shooting "over size" steel for close in work.

Lots of info on # 2 steel for 45 yard shots.......... :umm: :eek:

If it were for geese, I could under stand the large steel.

I think more info is needed for the short range choke!!

Never owned a pattern master and here they have them in a case at sportsmens maybe cause they were being shoplifted...I have one aftermarket choke for my 10ga. The rest is factory and they have been serving my shooting for many years.....Why change a good thing????

I like mine. It takes some getting used to, but after your used to it, it's CURTAINS for some fowl. You just gotta constantly make sure that it stays tight as it like to loosen itself. :thumbsup:

I have that same problem. Seems no matter how tight I get it, it loosens up. I stick a screwdriver through the holes and reef on it,,,,,,,,still comes loose!

I've occasionally forgot to tighten mine too, but I don't think it really hurts anything as long as it's not over a long period of time. I think if you unloaded the gun on a group of ducks or geese and it was loose I think you'd be okay.....I know I have had mine loosen up and I still shot it and havn't had problems.

Hasn't PM said that they've resolved the issue of the chokes loosening?

Thats what they say, but to get a fixed one you better order direct from them might be some old stock out there.

My PM is the only choke I will hunt with from now on. I shoot two main loads from it. A 3 inch load of 3's for ducks and a 3.5 inch load of 1's for geese. Both pattern very well to 40 yds and the combo out of my X2 is lights out for all sorts of fowl.
