Looking for an inside 40 yd choke for SBE2
« on: April 02, 2021, 07:46:50 PM »
Id like to start shooting smaller shot sizes that are heavier than lead. Not looking to get on the TSS train, but I would like some heavier than lead around #6s or #7s. I currently have around 15 rounds of Hevi13 #7s in 3in. I call turkeys in close. 360 pellets in a 10 inch circle at long distance is impressive, but I want more room for error. Id like a choke that i can comfortably take a bird anywhere from 10 to 30ish yards, but still be able to stretch out to 40 if I needed to. Ive seen some other threads in which SBE2s are being paired with tight IC, sumtoy, and Hevi shot chokes, but I have yet to find a thread that shows chokes with a more open pattern. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Did you ever find a choke that suits your SBE II?  I didn't see this thread until now. 
I have a few fairly open chokes I don't use much that I'd let you try, if you're interested.  Let me know.

I have a 26 inch SBE2 that I picked up after last turkey season.  Been using it all year on squirrels and it's been flawless.  It came with a Jellyhead .660 choke.  I just got around to patterning it this weekend.  I came across box of Remington nitro Turkey #6 / 3 inch that was $12 at my local gun shop, I thought I'd try that and then try some more expensive loads that I already have and then try  some 3.5's.   It patterned so well with the Remington Nitro Turkey that I didn't even try any other ammo with it. I didn't see how I could do any better I was so happy with the pattern.  I'm hunting hardwoods with alot of underbrush, no fields and I doubt I have any shots over 25 yards.  I patterned it at 20-30 yards and was just very impressed with the Jellyhead .660 Remington Nitros.  Tried the factory full and seemed to be a little lower patterns. I probably should have shot it at closer ranges, going to see if I can find another box of the nitros and shoot a few inside 20.

I've had good luck with Sumtoy, Trulock and Jeb's. But, had to go through many loads until I found which worked with each choke.

Best thing is a 665.   Change shell for the short range. (cheap lead)   Then if you go to a place you need the hot pattern swap to TSS or Long Beard.  :z-twocents:
