Baddest choke/shell combo for snows

Postby gooseman1 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 9:45 am

Lets hear some opinions of the baddest recipe you could put together for snows from decoying to 70 yrds!Steel now-we all know Hevi -or TSS, tungsten supershot would rule, steel recipies!
Heres Mine- after choke testing through the years, i would half to say in a 12 bore, SX3, Terror 675 choke, and Kent 13/8 3.5 of BBs or BBBs!

Bringing this from the dead...

Ultimate recipe is an expensive one...

Hevi Shot Dead Coyote Ts, coupled with Hevi Shot ER Choke Tube.

Watched a fella stone cold one at 70+ before....

Must be from the 20 gauge (1400fps). The 12 gauge is 1650fps and shooting this thru the ER choke tube would (IMO and Carlsons) not be a very smart thing to do. (NO SHOT FASTER THAN 1550fps) :fingerhead:

Kent 1-1/4 oz 3", BBB through a factory Remington full choke. I'll switch to a MOD or IC and #2 or BB if the birds decide to get squirrley in our decoys, in which case our shots are within 20 yards. Most days we rock 'em out at 35 or 40.

I hear a lot about that Terror choke.. is it worth it? All those other patternmasters for $100 didn't improve my shooting one bit... though maybe I was already as good as I'll ever get! :wink:
