There is a thread on oldgobbler on choke life. A few of the knowledgeable guys there think a choke improves with shooting. Sounds like ur dialed in with those last 2 shots. Trulock makes good stuff and stands behind their products.tried my trulock choke today. the first 4 or 5 shots with the fed. 7s were not good. about a 75 avg at 40 yds. then the choke put 165 and 148 in the 10 inch circle at 40. had heard before it takes a few shots to shoot the choke in. has anyone else experienced this.
Again, none to be found.I use the federal flight control heavy weight #6 which was discontinued for about a year in making. They have been back on market for some times but they are very hard to find. Hunters refuge even said they had to special order them. I'll be at Mack's PW tomorrow and plan to look there. We will be holding the World calling contest there tomorrow, big names coming from across the country.
X2 My son has killed 9 with the Fed HW 7's. Difference between the HW 7 and a lead 7 is like the difference in a ping pong ball and a golf ball.... Shoot the 7's, you won't be disappointedShoot the 7s and increase ur pellet count. They hit plenty hard; no need in 6s when ur shooting something that dense: lead is 11, hevi13 is 12, heavyweight is 15 on density scale. I get high 160s with a cheap undertaker in a winchester youth ranger 120. Awesome shell.
You know it's amazing how much difference every gun shoots different shells. I switched to 7's last year and let 2 gobblers get away opening day. Left 4 new shells laying on the ground by a tree that afternoon. Went back to the same shell in 6's and things started happening on day 3. I shoot a 870 SP. Have for 17 years. Nothing,...nothing I have tried can hold a pattern like those 6's in that gun.X2 My son has killed 9 with the Fed HW 7's.
