Hey Jim,

This will show you a pretty good selection of the SSX and some other chokes as well.

ORIGINAL: doepee

is the ssx choke that is talked about and recommended for my benelli the truglo strut stopper xtreme? thanks doepee


Yes, the SSX is "shorthand" for Strut-Stopper Xtreme. Truglo makes many chokes with similar sounding names.

The SSX was designed by Roger Burrell after many years of R&D. He and his son Byron are competitive shooters and hunters, well known in the still target shooting community.

Thanks,
Clark

I see the SSX fits the Mossberg 835, does it fit the 500 and 535?

My youngest brother gave me a TruGlo SSX for Christmas several years ago for my old SBE that threw a super-tight pattern and was better than any of the other 3 turkey choke tubes I bought for that gun.  It did not compare to my buddy's Rhino-choked SBE, but he'd had his gun tricked out by the Rhino gunsmiths and it was not just a store-bought choke that made the difference.

The same choke for the 835 will not fit the 500/535. For the 500/535 you need the win/invector model SSX.
If you really want the lowdown on the SSX, allaboutshooting can really help you. I bought my SSX from him for my 535.

Mike,

You getting nice patterns with the SSX?  What are you shooting for ammo?

SSX Turkey Choke

Postby allaboutshooting » January 5th, 2011, 12:23 pm

I've had several questions in the last month or so about the SSX Turkey Choke and about its internal geometry. It appeared that the best way to answer some of those questions was through a picture of the interior of the choke.

I've published one at http://www.allaboutshooting.com

The very short article containing the picture is on the front page and is entitled "The Interior Geometry of the SSX Turkey Choke".

It's of a very well used SSX Turkey Choke and hopefully you'll be able to see how this choke is made.

I hope that helps.

Thanks,
Clark

Hello Clark,

I just received my SSX in the mail on Monday but I haven't had time to take it out and pattern it yet, but I plan on doing so as soon as we get a break in the weather. I also took a peak at the pattern of the 20 ga. SSX with #7 Federal FCW at 40 yards and that's almost unbelievable! Can't wait to see what it will do with my new benelli. Thanks Clark.
