    Are you talking about Lead shot? The Franchi Intensity manual says steel shot shouldn't be fired through Improved Modified or Full chokes. I believe for normal brand chokes, .675 is considered Super Full? But not being familiar with Terror chokes, maybe they are different?

    Terror chokes and narrow Italian barrels are a match made in heaven. And I'm referring to steel shot loads.

    I see some tight chokes being talked about on here. I've never seen the need. Have y'all ever shot a mod or IC and noticed any difference?

    SRM Terror Choke Tubes: TERRORIZE THE BIRDS WITH SRM'S TERROR CHOKE TUBES

    Inpromarketing Corp highly recommends and offers for sale the very BEST performing and HIGHEST QUALITY constriction-type extended 10 and 12 gauge shotgun choke tubes available on the market today, the SRM TERROR Choke Tube. The Terror Chokes were originally developed by SRM Performance Products to shoot consistently dense and tight long-range patterns with the new "fast steel" shells and hand-loading. However, they also deliver just plain amazing radial-constriction choke tube performance, at any velocity and with all shot material types. These tubes are top USA-MADE quality in design, materials, quality control, tolerances and precision workmanship, and are designed with safety in mind so as to prevent the tube from "shooting loose" in the field.

    Terror Tube Frequently Asked Questions

    Q. How does shot size and velocities affect my pattern?
    A. Smaller shot sizes always flow through a constriction choke better than large shot sizes. The faster the velocity, the more aerodynamic effect on the pellet. Aerodynamics cause pellets to fly erratically, the choke’s job is to hold center density. Bigger pellets have more surface area, thus more aerodynamic effect on them, so they fly more erratically.

    Q. I’ve heard that the Terror Tubes have a tendency to ‘bulge’ in the barrel. Why is that?
    A. The Benelli/Beretta chokes, (all styles), are the most prone to bulging issues. They are very thin and the barrels are usually cut oversized in the choke body area. The choke can only deform into clearance provided by an oversize barrel. The choke will not bulge the barrel. A bulged choke will always come out of the barrel. A rusted choke is much worse. That usually requires machining to get them out.

    Q. What recourse do I have if my choke tube bulges?
    A. This issue is not a choke problem. It is a barrel issue. SRM and Inpromarketing Corp. cannot warranty a barrel problem.

    Q. What size shot can I safely put through the .675 12 gauge tube?
    A. #2s or #3s work very well because the center density will benefit you more than bigger pellets and they won’t hurt the tube as easily. The big problem is BB or BBB shot. These will bulge a .675 almost 100% of the time. You are much better off using a Wad Wizard tube for the larger sizes of shot since this tube does not rely on constriction and does not have to ‘funnel’ the shot through a smaller opening.

    the .675 is a very tight choke. I have spoken with Jeff at SRM in the past and he himself shoots a .700. He stated the .675 is way to tight for most applications other than snows at 45+ yards.
