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.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

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
There is a special place in duck hunting hell for sky busters

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.
