gun and choke

Does anyone shoot a 835 with a jellyhead choke? How does it do and what shells do you use?

First of all, welcome to T&TH. It's good to have you here and hope to get to know you better. This is a very good place and you'll find folks are both knowledgeable and helpful.

I have in the past shot the Jelly Head chokes in an 835, 935 and SSi-ONE, all with the same over bored .775 barrels. They seem to do just fine.

I have had my best results however with some other chokes. I see excellent results with both the SSX and the Hevi-13 Turkey Chokes. Both throw dense and even patterns at 40 yards without "baseball" size patterns at closer distances, the mark of a well designed choke, in my experience.

All chokes, again in my experience, do best with the current Hevi-13 turkey loads. I get my best patterns with the 3" "Bronze" shells with 2 oz. of either #6 or #7 shot. They are just the most consistent turkey loads on the market today.

I hope that helps some and again, welcome.

Thanks,
Clark

That is really fine advice Clark. Again, I would look at the HeviShot Chokes especially if you are planning on using
the HEvi13 or Magnum Blend shells.
