not just no.
Creates to much pressure!
What would be a good size? .708" maybe? Looking for a tighter pattern for coyotes, and maybe just maybe deer.
I agree with Clay, standard full is plenty but I've had lots of fun and results using my modified choke.
Remember, buckshot outdoors is good from here to that bush and indoors here to that wall.
I use slugs with Modified choke. I don't like buckshot
Slugs are much more likely to put deer down. Buckshot is more effective on felons.
i know people who use extra full chokes on there shotgun they still shoot fine but my gun i use a modi it hold the best pattern
I think Clay's right. Too tight. Even If it wasn't too much pressure you would probably get a wider spread than you would get from a looser choke to a degree. Would depend on the barrel dia. some too. Be safe and go looser.
Clay gives you good advice. Shoot buckshot through a choke with less restriction. The turkey chokes are designed to use small shot that won't bridge in the choke. The best chokes I believe for buckshot is usually Imp. Modified or full.
The tight choke will smash and deform large shot like 4 and 00, ruining your pattern and maybe more.
Stick to a full choke or get a Pattern Master which is designed for buckshot and other large shot sizes. Turkey chokes are too tight for big shot.
Clay said it best: "not just no. HELL NO!"
You would be better off shooting a .22 LR at coyotes than buckshot IMHO.
Agreed with Jim in Mo and + 1 for you sir!!!
