  1. Thanks guys, I'll check it out in a bit!
  2. Is this receiver already drilled/tapped and these are caps, or are they false marks that aren't?
  3. Only one piece steel camo base I've found thus far is the Burris SU camo steel, model 410608. In case anyone else is looking in the future...
  4. Thanks for the info tucker, I've used Warne before as well with good results! Looks like they don't make a 1 piece steel base for the SBE2 per that chart.
  5. Thanks for the info and looking it up, sorry for the post, I did try the FAQ site before posting but couldn't find it. Let me look again, if you have time can you post the link just in case I can't find it? I see it now...again sorry.
  6. What base/mount do I need to mount a Bushnell HOLOSight on a SBE2? Looking for a steel one, not aluminum.
  7. Sorry took me a bit to get back to you. I'm actually good for turkeys but looking to pattern for predator shot and buckshot. I posted my concern in this forum because it's relative to turkey loads as well I would think. If cumulatively you are squeezing 2oz+ (turkey) or 1-5/8oz (3.5" DC T) or 1-1/2oz (3" DC T) through a sub full (in this case a .660) choke...how can it be "OK" to shoot the turkey load but not the others? If anything I would think the larger load (turkey) would be more prone to causing "bulging" problems than T or buckshot, no? Same material, same hardness.
  8. Diggin this one out. gregor, how does adding washers (even washers) to the back of the C shim drop the POI more? It's essentially only extending the distance of the shim equally, not changing the amount it shims up/down just out/in...right? I'm thinking the new (bigger) bead brought you down on target more, no?
  9. CH, very nice and congrats on the birds! I do see it all the time, a lot of guys out there shooting tight with hevi-shot. Just the KI rep's comment about seeing split barrels "all the time", had me a little concerned. Yet I'm not reading much about them...so not sure how often it happens and if it's really due to the hevi-shot (and not steel) going through tight chokes...although they say hevi-shot is as hard as steel?
  10. CH, thanks for the reply! Thinking about this more...if the barrel of the SBE2 is wide enough to handle the loads (anything including steel), then it all comes down to the choke and the bottlenecking that results. If the choke is made of a material that can withstand the pressure, then I can't see that section of the barrel cracking as a result. I'd be more concerned about the shot "backing up" into the barrel before the choke starts as a result of the bottlenecking and cracking there. I don't know, some guys shoot all the way down to .650 with hevi-shot loads...and don't s
  11. I just had a great conversation with the folks over at Kicks and was talking to them about the SBE2 and their choke recommendations. Beyond all the details to that conversation, one significant item that popped up was the relationship between choke constriction and the usage of hevi-shot. My current turkey setup is Nitro 4x5x7 hevi-shot H51013 with a Rhino .660 choke. The patterns are devastating out to 60+ yards. Now when speaking with the Kicks rep, he was very convincing in his statement of not exceeding a constriction of .698 for my SBE2 choke when shooting hevi-shot due to
  12. gregor: What choke did you find best? The Long Range or the Extended? Just a little update... I just shot the ported Extended per the recommendation of Patternmaster with 3" copper plated Federal 00 and 000, 3.5" copper plated Federal 00, 3" non-copper plated Federal 00, and 3.5" Remington 00. All tests done at 40 yards. None shot very well at all IMO. I would say no better than the stock IM or even Full choke. I called PM and they said to send the choke back and they'd take a look. Mike recommended trying the Long Range to see if it improves. He also said t
  13. Rayovac Sportsman's headlamp (3 modes of lighting) which you can get at Lowes/Home Depot/Walmart is the best headlamp I've found and it's under $20. I've had very good headlamps all the way up to $100+ PrincetonTecs...but that Rayovac is all I use now...fishing or hunting. For blood trailing, I use a larger light...but after hunting ND with a buddy just a couple weeks ago, I'm a firm believer in Coleman Lanterns! That lantern picked up blood unbelieveable....that a flash light, spotlight, and headlamp could not quite as easily.
