Q:
Any opinions on the Primos Dead Zone waterfowl choke tubes? I am considering a pair for my Beretta 390, but not sure it's really worth the investment. As a new waterfowler, I'm wondering why you wouldn't just use your factory IC or MOD tubes...do they make a difference? Do you change tubes enough to make the extended tube worthwhile?

your factory IC and MOD tubes will mislead you for steel. And will you need more tubes because of steel wearing them out? ~~~~~ Here is something from Cabelas:Use these general rules for choke distances when shooting lead: Skeet for shots up to 20 yards; Improved Cylinder (IC) up to 25 yards; Modified up to 35 yards; Full up to 45 yards.~~

When shooting steel use this reference: lead Skeet = steel IC; lead IC = steel Modified; lead Modified = steel Full.

did you see my question below? I'm certainly willing to buy extra tubes if that is all I'm going to run into

I use a Patternmaster on my SBE for waterfowl but really can't tell any diff from the factory Mod. tube.

I replaced my factory choke tubes with stainless ones from Trulock. Great value for the money and lots of selections. They have tubes for almost every make of shotgun I can think of.
You can find them at www.trulockchokes.com
Good luck!
