I have been shooting an 870 my whole life and recently upgraded to SBE Yeh!!!!!


I do not understand the whole choke tube concept and was too embarressed to ask the sales rep (or my hunting buddies0.


I love to hunt pheasent. I borrowed a reloader and loaded up a bunch of 2 3/4 nickel plated lead. I can use this on the private land I hunt. We often move onto public and then I have to switch to steel.


What is the best choke for this situation.


I will also want to put a few slugs through the gun what choke is best for that.


We laced a few Geese the day I bought it and the sales rep put 'the right choke' for 3.5" steel in it.


Is there a web source with this information? Please provide answers or a link.
