New Choke for 12ga

I have been searching for a new Full choke for duck season and I like the Trulock Chokes. I was wondering if any of ya'll had one or maybe had a suggestion for a better choke. Anyway this is the Precision Hunter choke. They also have the Super Waterfowl choke that looks pretty BA, but I was wondering, Since the super waterfowl is supposed to hold the pattern much longer would it be hard to hit birds closer in? fwiw I shoot a Browning Maxus.

That is what my son shoots. Will rip a bird up if shot close. In fact a few teal he shot, the head was completely gone.

Haydel's look interesting too. Going to be a hard decision

I use the Browning Grand Passage chokes. I bought the full and the mod. They got good reviews and they seem to work pretty well. I haven't patterned them though, but I have been hunting with them for 2 seasons now and don't have any complaints. Good price as well.

This will be my 3rd season with kicks modified. I love it. Haven't crippled a duck in a while

re: New Choke for 12ga
i really need to get a better chock rather than the one i got for my gun

kicks will probably be my choice

i'm not a great shot, but we cripple more than we should...a good choke will fix that.....hopefully

Yes. That and using 3 1/2" #3 shot ripped the shite out of the teal. Way overkill.

Must learn how to work the birds in. You must be shooting them on the fly. Take the time to work them. You will enjoy the hunt, not the kill.

Are choke tubes interchangeable? Like, are they all threaded the same? Serious question.

I shoot the patternmaster code black goose. I'll say this, if you aren't a good shot it will embarrass the crap out of you. I find myself focusing on my leads more and shooting less by instincts as I have in the past.

Well what made me wonder was the thread starter asking for opinions. By his choice of words- he mentions Trulock and two others- I thought it would have to be.

REALLY threw me at the end saying, "I shoot a Browning Maxus FWIW"

each make and model of gun can have different threads. And some different makes and models can have the same threads. So some berretas and older benellis will be the same but different than the nova for example. Hope that makes sense

I shoot a paternmaster. Pretty badass but not worth the price IMO

I'm sure that a Rem tube will not fit a Browning, ect. I have a few from different guns and I will try to see if they are interchangeable just for the hell of it.

Hell, I know my son has about 10 tubes from other shotguns.

Different brands have different threads. Some exceptions could be Winchester and Browning. I think the SX2 and Golds used the Invecta Plus. Some older models used just Invecta. DON'T force them in, it could cost you a barrel.

What choke do you guys shoot doves with I guess a patternmaster was not a good decision.
