What choke tube??.

Postby kmoore2 » Thu Feb 13, 2014 7:00 pm

Any suggestions on an extended tube for 2's and BB. Is there one that patterns both well, or does it require 2 separate tubes?

Thanks for any help!!

I'd pattern your factory chokes first. I've bought into the aftermarket choke hype and spent a butt load of money only to have my factory chokes out pattern any choke I bought. Just dont want people to make the same mistake

Try factory first.... Then if your not happy start testing different chokes. I went to the Carlson on my first aftermarket in my sbe2. I was shooting Winchester expert 3" #3 at 1550fps. It was great for shoots up to 35-40 yds. But when I started hunting flooded fields I swapped To a pattern master full choke and love it. I changed my shot to a Winchester expert 3" #2 or #1. But it really depends on what you hunt.... Fields or timber. Just play around to you find what makes you happy.

Carlson improved mod. and a light mod. The improved mod may be a bit tight at times but works well at greater distance. I haven't hunted the light mod yet but I'm hoping it's gonna be the go to choke. The improved mod is also a great lead, dove load choke as well.
