    I recently bought a patternmaster code black goose. I love the patterns I get out if this choke. I shoot Winchester drylok 3"#2 with great performance.
    I was at my local gun shop looking to pick up a few boxes of shell to finish the season with,but all they had was black cloud with the new flex flight control was. Will this work in my patternmaster?

    I don't have any experience with either but I do not think you will get the same patterns. The idea behind the patternmaster is it slows the wad down so it doesn't disrupt the pattern. The idea behind the black cloud is the shot is supposed to stay in the wad longer so it keeps patterns tighter at longer ranges. Basically they are contradicting ideas striving for the same outcome.

    Thank you. I think I will just stay with the drylok I have been shooting.

    If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Pretty sure Pattermaster says any flight control wads should not be used with the code black chokes.

    If your only option in shells is the Black Clouds, why not just screw the factory modified back in to shoot those boxes and then just switch back to the PM once you get through them? Seems like an almost zero effort solution.

    As long as it is the NEW Flex Wads in BlackCloud will 100% work without issue in a pattern master stud choke . That is one of the reasons Blackcloud made the flex wad in the first place , because they were losing market share not being able to correctly work in every and all chokes with their old wads .

    How will they pattern in your setup ? That is up to you to do some patterning and see if they are going to be an adequate combo .
