Turkey choke help for sbe2

Postby Kirksingleton » Sun Feb 02, 2014 11:22 am

Hi, I am a turkey virgin!
I have a sbe2 28" and bought federal turkey 3.5", 5 shot.
Should I buy a turkey choke or is the factory full good?
I was thinking about buying the Carlsons waterfowl three pack and using the extended full in that.
Please help! Thanks.

I shot a nice Tom last weekend with a factory full choke but the bird was at 15yds so it didn't really matter what I was shooting. I would recommend getting a choke specifically designed for turkey. Also take a look at the Hevi Shot turkey loads in 3 inch. Mag Blend of Hevi 13. They're the best thing out there as far as turkey loads go.

Factory chokes can be good, only way to know is to pattern it and see. I might suggest, as mentioned, check into Hevi Shots Turkey Choke. Although I shoot Hevi13 3" #6's thru it, I have seen others shoot regular lead and the patterns are great.

It sounds like you guys like the heve13 better than the hevi turkey?
also 3" not 3.5?

Hevi 13 or Mag Blend are the way to go. The 3's will usually pattern tighter than the 3 1/2s. The recoil on the mag blend is about as stiff as it comes so save your shoulder and shoot the 3s

What Federal 5s? Blue Box? Turkey Thugs? Premium with Flite Control.. That 12 gauge flight control wad is picky and sweet spot for choke varies more than about any shell gun to gun..

I would pick up a box of Winchester Longbeards in 5s or 6s and be done with it..

Hevi-13 3" 2 oz #6s is a good, safe choice.

a good, inexpensive choke is the Primos Tightwad.....I shoot it in my stoeger 3500 and get great results and I'm about to put one in my Winchester 1300. Everyone I know that's tried one loved it. for $20-25, it's worth trying it.
