10 ga. Browning Gold Choke Help

Postby Gadwall Killer » Mon Oct 28, 2013 10:33 am

Men,

I love the sporting ammo 1.5 oz loads at 1600fps+-, with my 10 ga. BPS the Briley goose IM works pretty well (mid to high 80% at 40 yards). However, for some reason with the new Browning gold light 10 patterns are not nearly as good 60%+- at 40 yards. Even with the BPS pattern while it is good and tight it has some holes and is kind of spotty. It's even worse with the gold. I am to late to buy the .720 Terror so that's out. I bought a Patternmaster ext. And it did very poorly. So my question is with the mentioned load which choke do you men recommend me trying?

Thanks for your help!

If it were me I would try a Wilson Precision choke. I have one in 12 ga and I am very happy with it. They will make any constriction you want practly. I was considering a .730 for my bps 10. They are 60.00 as I recall. Might try it yet but the .720 terror is working well for me.

Thanks Rob,

I just ordered a light full from briley (.745) which is not much difference from IM (.750) but I will be interested to see if it makes any difference? Maybe it will if not I might think with the 1600 fps that I need to go the other way and use a mod restriction?

Did you pattern the invector mod steel imp cyl lead. Its a .765" Or the invector mod lead full steel at .755"? I have a truelock .740" full all metal in my gold. But I use fast 1 3/8oz loads. BBB and some #1.

If the light full doesn't do something good then I will definitely try the factory tubes. I guess I should have that first.lol

Gooseman if you know where one is for sale, I'd be willing to pay good money for it! What kind of patterns are you getting with fast 1s with it?

I have the .745 Briley in both of my Gold 10s. I wouldnt have any other choke. My opinion is your problem is the load and not the choke. I realize you dont reload and are limited by either factory or Sporting Ammo. I shoot 1 1/2oz payload of #1s in my guns and get close to 90% patterns at 45 yards. However, my loads are 1450 to 1500fps, not 1600. If you could get a 1 1/2oz load at those vels from S.A. I think you would start seeing better patterns.

Gadwall, I don't see a 720 listed - so I'm assuming Jeff is out? They have a 705 - which would be super wicked with fast 1s and 2s, the 735 is also listed, which would be solid to 45-50 I would think! Chris is getting great patterns with his Briley 745, so u may want to try that one? Otherwise, call Jeff and ask him if he will make u one? He's done it before! Good luck!

I talked to Jeff this morning and you are correct no .720 and 2 left in .705. He did not sound to interested in make chokes anymore to me?

With sporting ammo load and my forcing cone remove due to kick. The 720 was the best and 2Nd was theT3 Rob Roberts. We need to get Trulock to make superwaterfowel choke in 10ga. Please call George and tell him we want a 720 waterfowel choke.

Well men here is a SITREP:

Briley LF (.745) at 50 yards 30" circle:

1.5 oz. of #1s at 1600fps Sporting Ammo 86%!!!!!

1 5/8 oz. of BBs at 1350fps winchester dryloc 74%

Briley IM (.750) at 50 yards 30" circle:

1.5 oz. Of #1s at 1600fps Sporting Ammo 71%

1 5/8 oz. Of BBs at 1350fps winchester dryloc 57%

I will say I cannot believe the difference the .005 made! The Patterns were very even also. Sporting ammo recently has started using a mixture of zinc plated shot and un plated shot, they also have added a very thin overshot card which really had me worried until I patterned it. The 1s with LF should be a killer long range combo load! Thanks for the help from everyone, there is always a vast amount of knowledge on this site.

From the sound of it, you are not too broken hearted about the 720 Terror not being available now? 86% at 50 is not shabby at all and I would call it a top notch percentage at that distance. Since you say your patterns are even, you are in like flint!
I have been using a thin paper osc on top of the shot in my 10ga loads for years. They have always performed well for me. I assume they are shredded on ignition as I have never found one after a shot. I can say that I have not exceeded your 86% pattern when testing at 50 yards except with one load. Which was a 1 1/2oz load of T shot which gave me patterns from 87% to 93%. Good report!
