Pure Gold

All of these are top notch chokes.

Normaly the undertaker is bored .010 larger than most quality after market chokes. I and alot of friends have tried them in an attempt to save money. They are ok and WILL kill a turkey but I feel after doing alot of patterning that the higher end chokes out perform them. Personal opinion here is all. If it patterns good for you then by all means please use it.

I've used several over the years, and the best performance I've gotten is with a Kicks out of my 870 supermag. No matter which choke you try, you are going to have to try several different loads and shot sizes to find the perfect combo for your gun and choke. Just because you have a 3 1/2" gun and a Kicks choke, doesn't mean you'll get identical performance to my set up, or that my performance will match the next guys.

My particular gun really likes 3" Hevi-shot #5s, but my brother's 11-87 doesn't pattern them well at all. I haven't found a 3 1/2" that patterns as well as the 3" in my gun (and don't know that it's needed-the 3" kill them dead as a door nail as far as I have any business shooting at 'em :thumbsup: ) You just have to experiment with several different chokes/loads and find what works best for you. It's an expensive proposition, but if you have several buddies and each buys a couple of boxes of different brands/loads it really helps out with the financial aspect of patterning your gun.

Indian Creek Black daimond strike, if you are looking for one of the very best. But Jelly Heads do very well in Remingtons as well.
