  1. Announcement: BlackBore Chokes is going out of business. ALL chokes are $40 each plus S&H subject to stock on hand. Check out website at http://www.blackborechokes.com and call 864-612-8347 to order.
  2. AmsterDan, There is no reason that you should not shoot slugs through your Supernova. As you said, your best accuracy should be with chokes of modified and less. Try different loads and see what shoots best for you. Also, be sure to use better sights such as a red dot, slug scope or high visibility glow sights to take advantage of the slugs. The Fed Tru-ball loads shoot very well through my chokes in my Supernova. Good luck and have fun! GTPSC (Mark) http://www.blackborechokes.com
  3. Here are some typical targets using the shotshell loads as noted through my BlackBore Tactical HD chokes. The targets with the triangles are 12" X 12" and the triangles are 4" square. The round targets are also 12" and the dark red center is 3". http://www.blackborechokes.com/index.php/chokes/tactical/patterns.html Thanks, GTPSC (Mark)
  4. Jester32 Sure, in most relatively open chokes, slugs can be used. We are talking about CYL, IC, LMOD and even MOD will usually give good accuracy. Please keep in mind that it is always highly recommended to try a number of different shotshell slug loads to determine what shoots best in your gun. I have always found that the Fed Tru-Ball loads shoot very good through most chokes! Another highly recommended item is some kind of red dot optic, shotgun scope or very good high visibility sights to take advantage of this type of load. Slug loads would be what I would have in bear country! Mark http://www.blackborechokes.com
  5. pete.jake, your Montefeltro should shoot fine with choke constrictions of CYL and IC constrictions. My BlackBore HunterPro HV chokes for hunting work great for buckshot and rifled slugs with wads. I call these constrictions Close Range (CR) and Mid Range (MR). It is always hard to get a "one for all purposes" type choke, so try to narrow down what is most important to you. Buckshot is usually for relatively close-in work and the slug reaches out a good bit further. Slugs especially do better for the shooter if there is a better method of sighting then just a vent rib barrel. A red dot sight helps in that department. Good luck!

  6. Egin, Your SS takes the Crio-type choke. The chokes that come with your gun are the "Crio" flush-style that screw-in even to the muzzle. The "Extended Crio" is the one with the extension of some length out from the muzzle. Give them a call. GTPSC (Mark) http://www.blackborechokes.com
  7. albrupacker, the SBEII uses the Benelli Crio-type choke and the Super Nova uses the Benelli Standard-type choke. They are not interchangeable. GTPSC (Mark) http://www.blackborechokes.com
  8. Don't want to be a blatant promoter here, but might I suggest taking a look at the BlackBore HunterPro HV chokes! They are fine for steel usage and will prevent the wad from interfering with the shot column to eliminate flyers. As has been said, the choke used depends on the load and distance (close in, circling the decoys or flying over for a look)! Pattern the choke you use and your favored loads to see what works best.

  9. HH, Thank you for the great comments! Yes, I was surprised that the results were good using the Fed flitecontrol loads. GTPSC (Mark) http://www.blackborechokes.com
  10. Thanks for looking, tpaturkeyguy! Please note that I used the .680 constriction for those two patterns. A lot of hunters use even less such as .660 constriction, but I found it gave too tight a pattern with some loads. It's that balance of the concentration of the shot and the distance to the turkey where one has to decide on which choke constriction to use. GTPSC (Mark) http://www.blackborechokes.com
  11. tpaturkeyguy, HH is correct and I would add that the .680, .670 and .660 (in those ranges as every manufacturer seems to be different) constrictions ar the ones most often used in turkey hunting. The two biggest variables in finding the right combination are the shotshell and the shooter! That is why you need to get a box of each shell you would like to use and see what patterns best. Try the less expensive shells first as I have had great pattens through my chokes (you can check a few patterns on the BlackBore website). GTPSC (Mark) http://www.blackborechokes.com
  12. Vince, The Benelli Crio choke that fits your SBE II will not work in your M4, which takes the Benelli Standard. If you are looking for aftermarket chokes, you might consider my BlackBore Chokes! Thanks, Mark http://www.blackborechokes.com
  13. Greenhornet, you might go to a local Wally World and get one of those Limbsaver recoil pads with a sleeve that slips on to the stock over the existing one for a short term solution. Exchanging your stocks for one of the Benelli Comfortech stocks (in case your shotgun did not come with one) might help a bit. A fitted mercury recoil reducer (Benelli has one) could also help. Perceived recoil is always a tough one to diagnose and cure. Sometimes, the stock you have just does not fit you properly and getting that looked into by a stock expert may be the biggest help you can get. I do a lot of testing with all types of shotshells and the guns that seem to be easiest on me are the gas guns. Good luck! GTPSC http://www.blackborechokes.com
  14. Bello, All BlackBore chokes have a 2" extension. Thanks! GTPSC (Mark)
  15. All, For those interested, BlackBore Chokes (http://www.blackborechokes.com) now has the Tactical HD chokes for the M2's. The constrictions are Close Range CR (.730"), Mid Range MR (.720") and Extended Range ER (.709"). Of course, I have them for the M4's as well. This also means that the Benelli Crio-type are also available for the Benelli competition shotguns and hunting shotguns. If there are any questions, please email at [email protected] or call me at (864) 612-8347. The Bright Finish chokes for the Competition Chokes are $60.00 each and the Black Oxide Finish for Competition, HunterPro and Tactical chokes are $65.00 each. Thanks for your interest and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Mark Andry BlackBore Chokes
