Unobtanium Posted May 12, 2009 Share Posted May 12, 2009 (edited) Chokes: Trulock IC Trulock MOD Benelli MOD The Trulock MOD moved POI w/slugs 48 clicks left of center. THe Benelli MOD was about 1/2 that The Trulock IC was all but dead-on mechanically. What I mean to say is: Change your choke...know your pattern/where it shifts to! Repeatability when removing/replacing the choke was to the point that one would not notice any shift. Slug accuracy is not to the point where you can tell (and I cut ragged hole groups). MOD and IC perform so close to the same as to not warrent the IC choke unless your MOD choke just DOESN'T like slugs. IC MAY be a bit more accurate, but not enough to matter out to 100m. Slugger Slugs were used. 1oz/1560fps. Buckshot reacted VERY predictably, as did birdshot. Patterns were about 50% larger with both. At 25 yards my pet load went from 12x14" patterns to something like 15"+ because they didn't hit paper (all of them) I don't know. IC is good out to @ 12 yards. MOD to 20. This assumes "Good" means: all pellets in chest cavity with a load your weapon likes. Every time. I have decided that I bought a SHOTgun to shoot SHOT. If I want a single freight-train projectile, there is a lever .45-70 in the closet and 405gr hard caste projectiles will do nicely. I will shoot buckshot through the M4. As such, I ordered an IM choke. Improved/Modified. A step below full. Basically, the tightest choke you can run steel through according to Trulock. The reason being I might run Hevi "T-SHot" through it for pests/coyote some day. I am predicting that my pet load with the 10 pellet OOO Buck patterns VERY SICK! through this choke. Pix to follow by the weekend. (CHoke arrives in a day or two.) Remington's OOO Buck is buffered, has 3% antimony, and is obviously a large pellet. They pattern VERY WELL for me. In every M4 I have had. Edited May 12, 2009 by Unobtanium Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
