Choke and Load help for Browning Maxus

Postby SouthernVAHunter » Mon Aug 11, 2014 9:34 pm

Hey guys bought a browning maxus today and looking to go pattern it tomorrow with the stock chokes it came with. I'll be using Winchester experts 3" 1 1/8 2 shot. I have searched DHC for the past hour and have read what I can but was wondering what some of you have had the best luck with your maxus?

I've had good luck with federal 1-1/4 oz #3s using Briley extended IC and LM in my Maxus

What you're shooting will be fine. Granted, Xperts SUCK, but an oz & 1/8 of 2's should do just fine out of your factory Mod. I like a 1 1/8 oz load of 2's running between 1,300 & 1450. Patterns well in invector plus barrels, typically.
Smell that? Smells like sumthin died in here.

I'm also a proud owner of Invector Plus guns ( Maxus , Golds ) and when I'm hunting waterfowl , I choose Kents !

I find a IC or LM will perform just as good as a Mod , If you're shooting good ammo rather than odd shaped steel shot ! :yes:

I am running a SX3, same barrel as a Maxus. My goto factory loads are 2 3/4 in Kent, 1 1/16 of 1's, or 3 inch 1's in 1 1/8. for geese or three's for ducks.

All through a Carlson's IC or LM.

I'd also try Kents. I use a Carlsons Extended Long Range tube in my Invector + barrels, and that combo works great with Kent shells.

I've heard good things about Kent but never shot them. I hear the Briley choke throws a good pattern with the maxus. I think I'll give them a try thanks.

I had similar results. Kents, Remington Sportsmans, and Federal Speed Shok at 3" 1 1/4oz seem to do best for me. Had the best results at 40yds with patternmaster code black goose, and Carlson long range chokes. I have multiple guns with the invector plus barrels and all of them like to be choked a little on the tight side between .710-.715 seem to be the best constrictions.

Here is a link to some of the results I had out of my SX3 with an invector plus barrel
