pattern master or wad wizzard?

The problem with any wad stripping choke tube is that they are not designed to shoot small shot. They pattern best with BB or larger shot. I have a patternmaster that I use on my Goose gun ( Benelli Nova) and I love it. I shoot BBB's and it with demolish a goose, But I would never use it to Turkey hunt with. The Patternmaster does not have the constriction of a "Turkey" Choke. I use a Kick Gobblin' Thunder I think its a .665 , and it will shoot heads of with Winchester Supreme 3 1/2 inch 5's or 6's

Nothing Bad will happen you just will not get a very tight pattern. Any choke tube that you can shoot Steel shot out of will not be as tight as a full. Patternmaster is considered a "full" steel choke but really it will be as tight as your modified lead choke.


You can shoot 4's out of either choke, but dont expect to kill a bird "dead" further than 30 yds.


If I was you I would get two chokes one for Duck Hunting and one for Turkeys. You will be glad you did.
