choke for hevi shot


Recommended Posts

HeviShot is harder than steel. Tungsten Matrix is like lead. With TM use the chokes just like you would with lead. With HS I wouldn't go any tighter than Mod. If you are shooting over decoys or close shooting with HS , you may want to go with skeet or IC. HS tends to pattern tight.

Kent Impact is tungsten matrix and does act like lead (some what) and is a good shell. I use it in vintage fowling pieces instead of Bismuth. In newer shotguns I prefer Hevi-shot , and for waterfowl a choke with 700 consriction and shot load of 1 1/2 oz. The reason Impact workes like lead is polymer mixed with the tungsten. Other tungston alloy are not as soft. I have found no other shot that patterns as well as Hevi-shot .!
