What chokes do I use with steel, bismuth or tungsten alloy shot?
- As a general rule when switching from lead to steel shot you would use a choke with one full degree less constriction.
- If you want a full pattern with steel use a modified choke.
- If you want a modified pattern with steel use an improved cylinder choke.
- If you want an improved cylinder pattern with steel use a cylinder or skeet choke.
- Do not use any choke tighter than modified constriction with steel shot unless the choke is specifically marked for use with steel shot.
- Use the same choke you would use with the appropriate size of lead shot.
Tungsten Alloy Shot:
- There are several different alloys available. These can vary to a large degree in their level of hardness. When using factory chokes I suggest you use nothing tighter than full choke unless it is approved for tungsten shot.
As a general rule most Trulock chokes are rated for Hevi Shot, Hevi 13, Federal Heavyweight and Winchester Hi Density tungsten alloys. To see the full line of chokes and choices for 2013 and for your shotgun shooting needs, go to www.trulockchokes.com
