I'm trying to find the tightest choke- X-FULL, XX-FULL, whatever it may be for a 10 gauge shooting lead shot.
Anyone know what throws the tightest pattern and is still safe to shoot??

Thanks

Idunno, check the Trulock link above, whether it is the tightest or not I can't say, but if you order one they will probably make it to whatever constriction you want, within reason.

But remember, tightest choke doesn't always mean tightest pattern. :roll:

I've been trying to figure this out myself recently.

I've tried Kick's Gobblin' Thunder (.700") and Hasting's (.695") with Winchester and Federal's: 2 and 2-1/4 oz in #5 shot loads.

40 yard patterns are terrible!

My 12 gauge Mossberg 835 with a Comp-N-Choke .680" blows the SP-10 away at 40 yards!

20 and 30 yard patterns out of the SP-10 are awesome! But >30 yards, it goes all to heck!???

Going to try Remington 2-1/4 oz #4's tonight.

Let me know what you find out.

I just bought the gun Saturday - a used Browning BPS 10 gauge with a 24 inch barrel. I have two types of ammo to try
Winchester Supreme 2 oz. #4 and Federal Premium 2 oz.#5.

One of the two chokes that came with the gun is a Browning full choke. I'm figuring its a .735 (.775-.040) constriction.

I'm going to experiment with ammo and the standard full choke before I take the plunge and buy a 50 dollar choke. Since ammo is limited in my area I'll have to order various 5 or 10 count packs to play with.

From the little research I've done so far the CNC chokes look the best.

Thursday is Range Day!
Thanks for your input

Remington #4's gave a pretty uniform pattern at 40 yards last night out of both the Hasting's .695" and the Gobblin' Thunder .700. But, still not impressive!

Problem with 4's is that there are fewer pellets compared to 5's and 6's, so it's a little like comparing oranges to tangerines.

Ordered a Gobblin' Thunder .690" today and will experiment this weekend.
