Kicks HF Shot Size?

Postby BBK » Mon Oct 14, 2013 9:01 pm

Anyone know the restrictions on shot size with the kicks HF chokes? Specifically the .697 XF (IM).

Am I okay with 3.5" BB for pass shooting geese?

Might sound stupid, but what about a load of 4B for coyotes?

I don't see anything listed on their website regarding maximum shot size or speed.

no idea on that but if you want to use buck on yotes look hard at bb bbb or t lead 4 buck gets really thin patterns with big holes in it vary vary fast

Depends on the gun.They give you ideas for whats best depending on range for most all their chokes.

I have two kicks xf that I used for exactly what u are talking about pass shooting snows. I have shot BBB a little t shot and a bunch of BB when we would to this through my Remington kicks xf and a mossberg accumag 835 kicks xf. I usually shot the 835 cuz the big overbore barrel threw so much better patterns.

FWIW- I have 4 Kicks chokes for my 835 3 of which are HF's.The XF .748 F .755 and M .760.I like the F best for any steel/waterfowl and for most upland bird and small game shooting with lead shot.The other is a Gobblin Thunder .680 for turkeys with #4 shot and BB for coyote/varmint hunting.I will be selling the HF .748 maybe the .760 to.That's nothing against their performance/patterns I just don't hunt waterfowl that much anymore.
