12 gauge black cloud choke tube

Postby Snowgooser01 » Sat Feb 23, 2013 8:11 pm

I have a black cloud choke tube for my Remington 12 gauge and it sais that it is recommended not to shoot any shells over 1550 fps. I was wondering what will happen if I shoot a shell with more then 1550 fps thrue the choke tube.

Ever watch a Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck cartoon? The end will explode and you can be killed or seriously hurt!!!! If you are looking for distance shots, stay away from black clouds. They don't have what it takes. Get a Patternmaster Code Black extended full choke tube. I am shooting a Remington 870. Code Black tube/ Heavy Metal 3 1/2" #2 . 50+ holes with in a 36" pattern at 75 yards for snow goose hunting!!!!!!!!! My friends Mossberg preforms almost same results using same set-up and 3" Heavy Metal shells. Best $100 I have ever spent.

ive had nothing but problems with hevimetal. I switched to black cloud and my clean kills skyrocketed. I couldn't get hm to pattern worth a crap. way overrated in my book. ill give it another shot when I get a patternmaster

I've done a 180 on Black Cloud. I used to think it was over-hyped, but this year, out of my factory choke (modified) 3" BB was knocking down honkers at 40-50 yards. My thinking is that because of the wad, it is a long-range load. We've seen the wad hit ducks at 20 yds. Everybody has a different experience with different loads, and to tell you the truth, every gun is different. I have two Berettas, one like Black Cloud and the other doesn't. I'm guessing you're thinking about shooting the BC Snow Goose loads that are 1600+fps? I like those, but the regular loads have more shot and seem to pattern better.

No, I would rather have a slower shell with more bbs. I religiously use Black cloud 3.5"ers on geese in bb but may try bbb for more penetration. The geese here ussually float around 12-18 pounds (Canada Geese) so big shot is required. I would probably shoot this load at snow geese due to the fat of how well it shoots
