I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. My excuse is the combination of staying with my day job and trying to get BlackBore up and running. It looks like June or July is the soonest.
I have chokes now, but they don't have a black oxide finish yet. They will be sold for $ 70-$80 range, but I am planning a special price for Benelli Forum members, so please be patient a bit longer.
To answer your question, my choke does not have any problem with slugs (not unlike Patternmaster or Strangler/Wad Wizard chokes). Slugs will shoot with more accuracy if they incorporate a wad (so-called "rifled" slugs and other types with wads).
I apologize for not getting back to you and I know I need to pay more attention to messages. I will let you know when I have them available.
Have you made it back to LA to check what chokes you have in your 686? Just checking!
As you know, I am starting up to manufacture screw-in extended chokes of my own design http://www.blackborechokes.com). I already have the chokes for sport and competition, but want to bring out an LEO version. This would be of thicker wall construction, black finish and, possibly, a forward edge for door breaching.
Anyway, I am conducting tests with my chokes using various 00 buck loads and slug loads in my M4. Can you tell me what loads does the LAPD Swat uses and what shotguns do they use. If my chokes improve the performance of these loads, I can sell to this market.
