Hello.
Today I went to a local turkey shoot and did not do so hot.

Background info:
Gun- Stoeger M2000

My question is what is the best choke tube I can use to beat the competition next year. IMPORTANT; this shoot does not use.turkey loads, instead we shoot 1 1/8 Oz #8's clay target loads or multi-purpose loads. Now based on this what should I buy to win. Seems like a Full-choke would be best but that's just MO. What do you suggest?

Thanks

Have you patterned your S/G chokes at the distance and loads you intend to shoot?
Experimentation has its rewards.
I tried the various tubes it came with. Full, extended turkey, skeet. The best was a tie between the turkey and the full. But one guy there he had some tube that was extreme tight the pattern was covering the paper 6 inches by 6 inches and from about 35-40 yards. He left before I could ask him what is was. But it was silver and about 2 inches long if anyone knows what it could have been, let me know.

I personally use either a full or Superfull choke. I always shot my best games with my 870 when I had a super full Patternmaster choke. I've only used a full with my Maxus so far, and I am consistent with how I am with my other gun. It depends on the distance that most of your shooting is. We shoot "knockout" style games almost exclusively. Same rules as basketball, so if you're 3 or 4 down the line, that clay might be way out there. That's where your tighter chokes and heavier loads will shine.

Doesn't matter what HE shoots in HIS gun - what matters is what tube works best in your gun with the load in questions as has already been stated. Long chokes like that can be from a variety of makers like Comp-n-Choke, Pure Gold, etc.

Check out Sumtoy customs. We got to Turkey shoots all the time and he has developed chokes just for this game. We shoot a lot of flying target shoots but there are still targets also. This is at 50' flying. Insect Wood Pollinator Font Rectangle

Card shooting is almost an underground religion in KY. I knew a gunsmith in OH who made a good living adding 48" barrel extensions and his secret formula chokes onto old Winchester model 37 'Steelbilt' single-shots just for that purpose.
Still does, AFAIK.
