New Gun (which choke & which loads?)

Recommended Posts

wallter

I bought a new Super Black Eagle 2 and am curious what guys use for chokes and loads for best results during early goose. I'm heading to the gun range on Friday & will try some diff. combos but would like to here some feedback.

I use a patternmaster choke tube with 3 1/2in BB for all my Goose hunting.

i use the factory modified choke that came with my rem870, i throw 3" kent fasteel BB all season, and kent fasteel #4 at ducks, but each gun/choke combo is different, your best bet is to pattern a few loads and find out wich works best in yours

For the chokes that came with the gun, I use the modified with a good 3 1/2 inch load 1 or BB (I personally use Kent Fasteel).

I've always used full chokes for waterfowl...should I be using a bigger pattern choke? I do have a tendency to miss.

I'm running full choke in my 870 Wingmaster 12 gauge and I either stop them cold or miss.

Been running a lot of Kent Fasteel lately which is working great!

Faststeal is the way to go in that gun. I would use 3 1/2 with a modified. When you are using 3 1/2" shells you don't want to tight of a choke with all those BB's. If it is too tight they will bounce off each other and you can get some really strange patterning.

I just got a pattern master ported choke for my bennelli M1and shot a 3" kent BB at a 30" x 30" box at 30 yards and it was a darn nice pattern (stop counting at 45 bb's) all in about 24" radius.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
