RE: What kind of choke(s) do you use?

I have a MB 835 and shoot an IC choke. I shoot a .710, but I shoot handloads of TSS and with the standard .675 I think it would be way too tight.

I believe any of the listed chokes are great, haven't seen a comment for Pure Gold though, they are great, great chokes and will through great patterns.

The JH for an 835 is .690, not .695 as some one listed, just saw that reading the posts and wanted to help anyone that may have a question.

I'm shooting a Final Strut .650 from Rob Roberts in my SBEII.

What kind of results did you get with the SSX?

Hey Tranz...I was thinking of getting an M4...  What kind of patterns are you getting with the M4?

Longspur...what kinds of patterns are you getting with the FS .650?  I have a SBE2 with 24 inch barrel and have been pleased with a Rhino tube,  but would still buy something else if it patterned better.

Rhino .660 works best in my Benelli SBE 2 with a 24" barrel.

I tried a Rhino .660 in my SBEII and every other choke I tried (including the Benelli/TruLock factory turkey choke) ran circles around it. No matter what shells, Hevi 13, Federal Heavyweight and Winchester Xtended Range, there is no comparison.

I get high 180s to mid 190s with Winchester Xtended 5s and around 215-220 with 6s out of my Final Strut.

Thanks Longspur...
I get about the same numbers with my Rhino tube with those same loads..and mid 250's with magblends..I guess I'll stick with what I have.  Thanks again...

Best results so far with Rhino .660 and Hevi-Shot's Magnum Blend out of my 870 (188 hits in 12" circle at 48 yards, crumpled a tom at 45ish yards yesterday, and that was through some bramble). Consistently better than my SBE 2 with same chokes and loads, which leads me to believe that turkey guns/loads/chokes are as unpredictable as the opposite sex.
