Mossberg 835: Jellyhead vs Indian Creek
« on: April 10, 2013, 03:03:42 PM »
Hey guys...been a while since I've posted on here.

I was just wondering if anyone has done a straight up Jellyhead vs IC comparison out of their 835.  I've been using a Jellyhead with mine shooting Nitro H517 4x5x7 Hevi-Shot and it shoots quite well (i know thats a common setup), but I've never actually done the 40yd 10" circle test.  But I have read some good things about Indian Creek chokes and was just curious about it.  Kind of pricey but Im willing to pay the price if it can further make my gun more effective.

Thanks guys

I can't compare the JH to the IC. But I can say that the JH shot in the low 200s for me with hevi#6s in a 10" circle in my 935 at 40yds. There's probably been better numbers by others but I'm not gonna mess with it for now.

The Jelly Head choke using 3.5" Hevi-13 #7's would do 268 in the 10" at 40yds.  The Indian Creek BDS.675 using the same loads would do 298.

Are those actual tested numbers or assumptions?  Not being cocky, im just curious.

Yep - you can take Brad's pattern numbers to the bank on Hevi-13!

I will show you some pictures. 

The Jelly Head I only have the 10". 



Here's the Indian Creek .675 BDS stainless steel version.  There's 297 in the 10" and 232 in the 20".

Here's the TruGlo SSX .670 shot on the same day as the Indian Creek above.



You can buy that choke for $35 shipped to your door. 

Here's another one form that choke on a 45 degree day. 

Only have the 10".

Hey thanks ILIKEHEVI.  Im all sighted in for this year so I think Ill stick with what I have (which isnt bad to begin with), but next year I think im convinced to buy an Indian Creek and try that out.

Indian Creek makes a great choke. 

So does Pure Gold.
