Tech Spec - Choke Tube Interchange Comparison Chart

THE RIGHT CHOKE TUBE CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.



Confidence in a shotgun/choke/shotshell combination is the biggest factor in improving your hunting success and clay-target scores. Generally, aftermarket choke tubes are made of a harder stainless steel and perform better than standard factory choke tubes. Many of the aftermarket choke tubes deliver outstanding target-, turkey- and wingshooting-specific patterns. Always pattern your choke/shotshell combination before heading to the field or range. Here are a few tips when choosing a new choke tube for your shotgun:

a) Steel shot should not be used in any choke tighter than full.

b) Extended choke tubes pattern tighter and denser at long range over flush-mount choke tubes.

c) Extended turkey choke tubes provide optimum long-range patterns with no. 4, 5 and 6 lead shot. Never shoot steel shot through turkey choke tubes.

Use these general rules for choke distances when shooting lead: Skeet for shots up to 20 yards; Improved Cylinder (IC) up to 25 yards; Modified up to 35 yards; Full up to 45 yards.

When shooting steel use this reference: lead Skeet = steel IC; lead IC = steel Modified; lead Modified = steel Full.
