Patternmaster Long Range Non-Ported. $90 and worth every penny.
Is that choke made for buckshot? Do you have experience shooting buckshot through one? If so, how many rounds of buckshot have you put through it? I have tried several different chokes for buckshot and they all seem to work great at first but quickly start to wear out and lose a good pattern. If that patternmaster choke will last then I definitely want one! Thanks.
lorman - I do not have one on my gun YET, but I have one on order.
I hunt with some people in Mississippi that run dogs and can only use buckshot. One of those guys sent his gun to someone in Minnesota to have it patterned. He was told to use the Patternmaster Extended Long Range.
I called Patternmaster just yesterday and talked to someone named Steve. He said the Extended Long Range was made for shooting 3 1/2' buckshot. The Long Range for 3' buckshot. The tube is made to grab onto the wadding for just a split second, thus keeping the pattern tight.
My buddy can put 13 of 15 pellets of 00 in a 13' pie plate at 40 yards. Another guy there shoots 000 and he can put all 11 pellets in a 13' pie plate at 40 yards. Both have found Federal Premium to hold a tighter pattern but that will differ with different guns.
As for how long they last, I can't tell you that but these guys have been using them for 4-5 years.
...if you can ever find a older gun w/the twist of the wrist Poly-Choke w/9 setting and a vent sleeve...buy it.
We have one on a early 16ga Wingmaster pump that if you drew well place dots on a target the Poly-Choke comes real close to match'n it...it was well on w/skeet, but I wasn't ??? cheers
I shoot Remington's and have found the briley chokes to produce the best pattern
Awesome! At least 4 to 5 years will work for me! Thanks! Gonna look em up and purchase one today!
lorman - call 814-937-6232 and tell them what kind of gun you shoot and they will tell you what choke and what ammo to use. Very nice people. I called that number yesterday and no one answered. I didn't leave a message thinking it would be a waste of time. 45 minutes later, Steve called me back! Said he saw the missed call and was just following up. Very impressive in this day and age...
