    Speaking of Choke Tubes

    Best aftermarket and why:

    Briley? Been to their shop. Likes what I saw. But still a constricting choke.

    Pattern Master? Are their reduced shot stringing claims true?

    Just work the ducks close and shoot them, and aftermarket chokes are for top waters with face paint.

    Go!!!!

    Trulock. Briley is good, too. Muller is awesome, but I only have his aluminum chokes, so I don't shoot anything bigger than #5's through 'em.

    Take a look at the Briley "Timber & Teal" choke. Pete over there hooked me up on that one. My SBE1 LOVES that choke with just regular ol crappy 3" Winchesters.
    Post count, what post count?

    long time Briley user, but until you pattern the gun it don't mean squat...When i bought my RM1100 from a previous owner it came with a Carlson choke with Invector threads, my IC shoots birds stone dead at 35yds...havent felt the need to change it
    was known as Maxflight on another forum , but wanted to start fresh here

    Trulock is my go to, if he doesn't make it, then Briley.

    If you want a serious long range choke like a PM, buy a Briley Goose, it is straight rifled and will shoot well beyond the energy of pellet. It is a great turkey choke, it retards the wad slightly and the pattern is dense with it, regardless of pellet size

    I shoot an a400 extreme and the factory modified is what patterns well for that gun and duck loads.

    Aftermarket for turkey, I use a Carlson turkey choke and Winchester long beard xr. I tried pattern master, Indian Creek, and briley, Carlson smoked them all in pattern density at all ranges especially at 50, 60, and 70 yards.

    Got plenty of Trulock chokes, a Terror choke for one gun, a Pure Gold for my M2 20 gauge for Turkeys, which is flat out awesome.
    You really need to try a couple of different one, pattern them, and see which one gives you the best results, but you already know that.
    Yeah, that's a Cane Corso

    For large shot at long ranges I have not found anything better than pattern master

    When the rare set up calls for long shots on ducks I shoot #1 3.5 inch and it crushes them at 50-60 yards

    Theory is a tighter shot string. I like it for sporting clays and duck killing. You can tell it's tight on a cripple.

    Just bought a pair of these. Will be testing out soon.

    Put a Carlson mid-range (not the Cremator) in this season and the ducks/geese hated it. Had been using a Kick's mod and now it lives in a dark drawer.

    Trulock. I've wanted to try Muller but reading about the guy, he is a complete prick and a lot of pro shooters say he is all snake oil.

    I have 2 Müller Waterfowl chokes and they pattern really consistent with a variety of ammo. I have the Decoy and Passing tube and they work as designed, but I bought both new from individuals. Jimmy is a complete jackass, I had a set for my Citori and sold them and bought a full set of Trulock's and haven't looked back

    IM Briley extended tube here. I've shot paper with it up to 40 yards with no holes. It's probably too tight for 15 yards and under however.
