Chokes with Federal Flite Control Wads

Postby reloader-51 » Fri Mar 13, 2009 9:03 pm

For those of you that use the Federal Mag-Shok with Flite Control wads, what type choke are you using? It says on the Federal website that extended chokes aren't needed and I was wondering if it's better to use a modified, full, or xtra full choke with these with the factory screw in choke that comes with the gun.

Use a factory full choke with those shells. If you go with an after market choke make sure it is not a wad restictor type. The wad on the flite contol shot is designed to stay with the shot longer and in theory make the pattern tighter with a smaller shot string.
But my test show that even though the wad flies further, the patterns aren`t great out to 40 yards.
Good luck and hope they work for you
