TURKEY CHOKE FOR SBE II

Recommended Posts

I JUST PURCHASED A SBE II. JUST WONDERING IF ANYONE COULD GIVE ME SOME GOOD ADVICE ON A TURKEY CHOKE. I HAVE HEARD THE PATTERN MASTER WORKS REALLY GOOD.

TH,

I believe mudhen likes the Rhino .660's with Winchester 3.5" XR's.

 

Given the fact that he posts more gobbler kills every year than the rest of us combined, you'd be well-advised to give them a try as well.

Shot a few toms with my SBE II so far:

I have found the Rhino .660 1.5" works best with Win 3.5" XR's #5's, but the Primos Jellyhead .660 works just a tad bit better with Win 3.5" XR's #6's.

 

Both tubes and both shells travel with me everywhere I turkey hunt...

Hey Mudhen, just out of curiosity; how does the Jellyhead compare to the stock crio full?

 

Dunno.

 

I've never fired a shot through any Benelli factory choke tube.

 

The JH shoots almost the same as the Rhino - both being .660.

Hello to all, I just got my SBE II as well and am kinda concerned. It sounds like no one likes the factory chokes. Is there something wrong with them? I think I am gonna get a Rhino for turkey but am unsure about waterfowl next season. Any advice would be appreciated. Please give pros and cons about factory chokes.

I have an early SBE and use a Rhino .640 choke for Turkey and Buckshot.It shoots both extremely tight.The Pattermaster I bought before it didn't shoot well at all.I don't know if Rhino makes the .640 tube for the Benelli anymore.If they do I'd try one if I were you.

Sorry about that ,I mean't to say Rhino .655 choke tube.I use .640 tubes in my card shooting guns.The .655 is awesome with buckshot and turkey loads.

Some people have nothing good to say about anything? LMAO Why would the factory tubes not be any good, i feel that they would suffice for most applications and people just want something NEW $ EXPENSIVE BUTT whats to say that aftermarket manufacturers have not done their home work and i expect the differences to marginal at best!! But i am an native arkanite and what would i know!!

I'd try Win HV copper coated lead #5's or #6's. I've kilt a few birds with that load.

 

I just like the XR's because they seem to have a bit more range and knockdown power.

 

If I didn't travel to hunt and spend what little $$$ and vacation time I get, I'd shoot those HV's all day long.

(IMHO) I think the full choke that came with my SBE II is just fine.

Pattern your gun with the factory full choke. If you feel you need a tighter pattern go aftermarket.
