Is it okay to hunt with Muller Chokes in your gun? Shooting #6-#8 shot only. I didn't know if it would damage the chokes to use for hunting over time? Can you use the same chokes that you shoot sporting clays with to hunt with? Or do you need different chokes?

Using the Featherlites for hunting is great as long as you do not shoot anything larger than size #6
IF you want to shoot larger than that or use Steel shot, Hevi Shot, etc, then you would want our awesome Waterfowl/Hunting Chokes.

Thanks Jimmy. I shoot mostly dove, and quail about 90% of the time. But once in a while I'll go on pheasant hunt in the midwest and wanted to make sure it was okay before ordering them. Thanks, bird_hunter66

Buy one Waterfowl PASSING choke and it will take care of all your hunting needs.

Be sur to consult your local game laws as these work so well I'm certain they are banned in multiple states.

I have been using a set of Inv+ U1's in my Citori this fall with deadly results. I am shooting a 12 gauge with 1-1/4 oz #5's. I am also hunting over a Brittany so my shots are close. I had my first cripple yesterday but I took a loooong shot on a rooster that flushed when i stepped in some cat tails. Don't know if it hurts the chokes shooting 5's or not but if they become damaged I'll buy a new set.

How about standard U0 and U1 with TSS loads? 7 or 8 shot 18g/cc tungsten.

I would certainly take Jim's advice on shot size although I will just add from my own experience of using #5 lead thru a U2 without issue. Choke still threads in and out easily after many rounds thru it with no sign of wear and tear. So I'm comfortable using it. I had purchased this U2 long before the waterfowl chokes was available, otherwise I may have gone that route. I also don't hunt waterfowl, so non-tox shot is non issue with me.

Lead bigger/thicker than #6 may damage the Featherlite chokes?

Galho, "MAY" being the key word here. I have used #5 lead thru the featherweights without issue for the past several years. The difference being, I'm not putting thousands upon thousands of rounds thru them as one would do shooting target ammo. Maybe a hundred rounds per year.

Works for me, but does go against Jim's recommendation.

birdshooter, thanks for your answer.

I have used Briley chokes with #4 and #5 lead shot without problem but I'm concerned if the Muller choke, with less elasticity, support well the pressure generated by larger pellets without craking.

It's only a concern because I have no doubt that they are very good with features never seen in other chokes.

Hélio(Galho), what are you doing here?! You don´t need Muller´s because you already shot too well. :D

Jim, please do not sell Mullers to Galho because after he kills everything(hunt) in Portugal. :twisted:

We'll if you are concerned about it then I would suggest the Muller waterfowl chokes. They are made from Stainless steel and designed specifically for larger shot, but still have the Muller geometry that works so well with the featherweight chokes.

The aluminum will typically not "crack' or break, but it could swell and get tight if too large of shot is forced thru it.
Same result if you take a factory choke or competitors titanium or stainless choke and shoot big Steel shot thru a Full choke. It usually ends in swadging the choke threads into the barrel threads becoming one and you cannot get the choke out. Only way to fix is to machine the choke tube out.
Another hidden benefit of Mullers featherlite is theat it will never become "one" with the barrel. It will always unscrew even if it is extremely tight.

What muller choke would work for upland birds. Mostly Chukar.
