Would love to see some to compare any of the 3 constrictions and brands. 


My gun is a Weatherby 459 but that’s no issue, just talking choke tube constrictions.

I’ve shot the .562, .570, and .575 IC along with the the .562 and .570 Sumtoy. My experience is this. .562 and .570 IC are practically identical. I saw virtually zero change in pattern until I shot the .575 and even then it was much. The .562 Sumtoy really depends on the gun but out of my Franchi Affinity it and the IC.562 we’re close. The .570 Sumtoy however was a big difference atleast for me. Where the .562 and .570 IC were identical, the .562 and .570 Sumtoy were opposite. The .570 ST  was a much more open pattern compared to the .562 ST. I currently run the .575 IC in my Franchi and I like it a lot. If I was nitpicking I’d say the .575 IC is still a bit too hot for my liking but the .570 Sumtoy is a bit to open if that makes any sense?

Thanks for the reply Coop, all good info!  Do you happen to have any pattern pics?  What made you decide .575 vs .570?  And was most of your testing @30, 40 or 50yds?

Coop1082, what length barrel you have on your Affinity. Mine I 26” and I have shot the Jebs .570 and I.C. .570 and really think they are a little too tight. Is there a huge difference in the .570 Sumtoy and the .562 Sumtoy? I want to try one or the other and am afraid the .562 may be a little too tight as well....I use Federal TSS #9s.

I have a CNC .565 mobil choke for sale if you are interested.
