SBE2 Ammo

Recommended Posts

What's everybody's take on best ammo for the SBE2? I've had mine for years and can't seem to find the best shot pattern. I have a Carlson's long range choke tube, but it doesn't pattern well at all even with black cloud shells.

 

In fact, I haven't had a black cloud shell that has patterned well at all. Shooter error? I'd hope not.... Standing still at multiple distances right on target and was still disappointed. The only pattern that looked like a kill shot was at 30 yards.

 

Keep using the aftermarket choke?

Switch away from Black Cloud shells?

Any suggestions?

Here is a pic of my pattern with Black Cloud #2 3.5" at 40 yds with a Briley standard extended non ported choke. I tried all the BC chokes from Briley and Carlson as well as about 10 different other chokes and constrictions, but the Briley LM did the best.photo.jpg 30 inch circle by the way

What a great looking pattern! Mine didn't turn out a thing like that; the only 3.5" shell I used was BB, but you would think it would look SIMILAR to yours, but it definitely wasn't. Looks like you found the choke for your gun! You shooting a SBE2?

Yes I shoot a SBE2. I had similar results with this same choke and BB's. Also make sure you shoot a big piece of paper(4x6) so you can tell where the pattern is. I once had a SBE1 that shot so high I thought the pattern was poor but really it just wasn't on the paper. My SBE2 shoot high as well. I switched to the "c" and it's fixed it. Hope this helps.
