    Anybody know about "Heavy shot" brand chokes? Kittles recommended it.

    Why do you care about your choke anyhow?
    Everyone knows there's no duck to shoot at.

    Carlson’s light mod. Want to borrow to see how you like?

    Was it recommended by that kid that sleeps with his lanyard on?

    For constriction chokes with my SX3, I've done well patterning Carlson's close range and mid range against factory IC and MOD. Maybe it's nit-picking, but I have gotten better patterns on paper with a couple of different loads... I got more pellets on the circle with the Carlson's, so I used those for a couple of years... Last year I switched to a Patternmaster Timber choke, not the long-range, tight one but the 30-yard one, and have experienced great results on doves and ducks since. I guess I drank the the "stud ring" kool-aid, but I've taken to the close shots and done well in that 25-35 range with way fewer cripples and more doubles. All I can say is that you should shoot paper to pattern and go with what load/choke works best for you. The PM stud ring doesn't show up on paper, but I'm loving it so far in the field.

    Bought one of these a few weeks ago. I put it in my SX2 and put my Carlson's IM into my boy's SX3. Patterned them both with Kent 3s and 4s...beautiful even patterns with both. If the target was mallards at 20-40, I'd screw in the IM. I really like the convenience of the extended tubes.

    I use a Carlsons mid range non ported choke. My sx3 shoots hevi metal 2 shot really well. I sometimes throw a Carlsons skt choke when they are close. For BB the modified shoots blindside well. My gun is 3 inch model only. Haven't got to shoot it yet this year though.....its been with the gunsmith since September.

    Damn, I got the SX3 as a back up...not expecting gunsmith needed issues!
