I've shot a 1300 for several years and have great patterns with a .655 Gobblin' Thunder choke tube and Hevi 13 in 6's. I tried several of the $20 tubes and all the factory loads but did not compare to the G.T./Hevi 13 combo.

allaboutshooting, what are folks paying for NWTF 1300s?  I have a never been shot one that I won about four years ago that I would rather have the jack for to pay for a turkey license.

I've had my 1300 for 8 years and love it. I have the first edition TruGlo .665 Strutstopper choke by Banser and it's deadly. I've won several turkey shoots over the years with this combo. Tried my buddy's HS Undertaker choke and it patterned great as well. That ticked me off as I paid about three times as much for the Banser.
 
My 1300 doesn't like Winchester ammo. Remington is OK but it prefers Federal #4 s w/ Flite Control wad.
 
I've read Winchester 1300/ HS Undertaker / Federal #4 s several times in this thread now so it seems to be a preferred combination.
 
Best of luck with your new gun!

Hey William,

I think around $350.00-$400.00 for the ones that I've seen, and there really have not been very many lately.

Thanks,
Clark

Thanks, Clark.  That gives me an idea of what to ask.

ORIGINAL: nhturkey

I have recently acquired a winchester model 1300 with the four original chokes and a 24" barrel. I realize every gun ever made is different, but if anyone has had good success coming up wiat a good choke (either original or aftermarket) and load combination for that model it would at least give me a goodstarting point for experimentation with my gun without tieing up thousands of dollars in choke tubes and differnet shell configurations. THANKS!

 
I shoot a 1300, 21" barrel and a Hastings .660 with Winchester Supreme (red hull) 2 oz. #5 with excellent results.

Just recently purchased an older 1300 with Win chokes.  Would like to know what someone would recommend for ammo, as I would like to use it for Spring Turkey hunting.

Banser designed and made the undertaker for HS. STRUT.
Don't be too hard on yourself the Strut Stopper is as good as any choke on the market today I have 3 of them. The last one I got on a close out at Cabelas for 15.00.

HI DSCHULTZ
 
You might try the Undertaker they are inexpensive 20.00 and they are a good choke.
