Choke Test

Postby wfolds » April 11th, 2014, 7:35 pm

Just getting into Turkey hunting I wanted to use a special Turkey choke tube so I ordered a .665 turkey coke spending @ $45.00 and when I patterned it the shot concentration was not great. The shot was all over the place so it was returned. Since I shoot Muller chokes when I shoot sporting clays I called and ordered a UFO and last weekend I patterned my Benelli SuperSort and a Crio + UFO choke. I also had another manufactures choke tube in order to compare, but shot the UFO first. At 40 yards I set up a 4’X4’ NRA pattern sheet and put a 12" shoot-n-see target in the center. The load tested was a 3" Winchester Long Beard XL #5 shot shell. The first shot was a little high, but the coverage above the 12” shoot-n-see was tight. After adjusting my sight to bring the shot down I fired a second shot. I was amazed at the number of shot completely covering the 12" shoot-n-see center. There were a few shots on the perimeter, but the consideration on the shoot-n-see was impressive, so much so that I didn't even shoot the second tube. I cannot see how I could get any better coverage with the other choke and it was returned also. One thing for sure, the UFO will equate to a dead Turkey as long as I do my part. I was a little apprehensive because of the price of the choke at first, but after testing and with the amount of shot in a 12” target, my personal opinion is that it was money well spent. Thanks Jimmy I am a fan.

The UFO is one of the Muller Chokes in their new steel series

Just got their Decoy choke to use for Coyote and will pattern it within the next few weeks. I will also shoot the UFO again and try to post some pictures. Here is a link to the choke and the Muller site http://mullerchokes.com/collections/ben ... ecrio-plus
