Choke tubes that are ported

Postby bpitts » February 25th, 2009, 6:57 am

I am new to this forum and to turkey hunting. I have a question maybe you can help me with. I just bought a mossberg 835 ulti mag that has a ported barrel. I bought a primos tight wad but after ordering, I realized it is also ported. Can I have a ported choke on a shotgun with a ported barrel? It may be a stupid question to some of you but I am new to this so bear with me. I would appreciate an answer. Thanks

My 835 is the same way. The only trouble I have right now is sighting it in. I ordered another sight for it so that should fix the problem. It throws a great pattern by the way just not where I want it to be, yet. [:D]

Thanks for your comments. I wasn't sure and it sure gives me peace of mind knowing I didn't order something I can't use. Thanks again guys!

I had a Moss 500 ported barrel and a Kicks ported tube. No ill effects that I knew of did have to install a set of adjustable sites on it to get the point of impact corrected. It didn't like the Federal flitecontrol shells but my Remington doesn't like them ether. I think if your choke tube ports are designed to help slow the wad as well as reduce recoil and muzzle jump it and the Federal shells may not get along too well. But I wouldn't rule them out either.

I was using Winchester High Brass #6 shot just to see where the pattern was going. I also tried shooting the Federal Premium Magnum Turkey loads, #6 shot 3" and it shot the same place, I just have to get it where I want it to go. I'm also going to try the Winchester HV #5 shot in 3" to see what they do. I MIGHT try the Winchester 3 1/2 inch #5 shot but i'm too chicken. [:D] And I do have the ported choke and barrel.

I've shot a Mossy 500 with a ported barrel and a ported choke for over 10 years with no problem.

thought i'd jump in here behind TC and his comment on '' CAIN'T HEAR YA ''.
if you and your hunting partner are set up on the same tree,,,the one that ain't shooting will suffer from the muzzle blast more than the shooter or the turkey.
