That LB posted up a very even pattern. Any idea what the 20" looks like??

That pattern will possibly decapitate the gobbler. Awesome job and good luck.

Rough guess would be another 125-150 in the 20" but I didn't draw it out.

Does anyone know the constriction on the browning x-full turkey choke inv +? Its not on the choke and I don't think they make it anymore.

The gun patterns great at 40 with the .665 IC I had with Nitros, and various other turkey loads. But sometime was too tight 25 yards and in. Didn't get to try the LB with the IC.

I think it measures right around .640

I have heard all over now from .640 - .697.

It shoots much more like a .697 compared to the .665 IC

Not bad for a $2 shell you can find almost anywhere vs. $7-8 shot with limited availability.

Can't wait to get my IC back and shoot the LB #6's with it to see how it does

Do you have this one or the new Browning "full strut"?

I have found where the full strut is .640 but can't confirm on the older one I have

I have a Gold and tired that same choke with a few different loads. Everything I've looked up and everybody I've talked to says the constriction .697 and I'm pretty certain that's the case. It shot good consistent patterns with TSS and Hevi but I opted to go with a kicks buck kicker that's .690...just right with what I wanted.  2 oz of 8s with TSS I'm getting 280ish in the 10 and 190ish in the 20, what I want with a hunting gun. El Diablo knows his stuff when it comes to Golds, he's helped me a lot so if you have questions he's got answers!

Went back to the range today. Windy but other wise satisfied with the .675 IC and LB 6's, I think it would be close to the browning x full 10-20 hits either way. Only shot it once since it's now the backup to my 20ga.

Not sure why a guy would ever want to go from a nitro pattern like you have to a 194 longbeards pattern with lead shot.

People say things are too tight 25 and in but I just bring may aiming point down into the feathers when they start getting that close.

I think a tight choke is a safer thing for the bird.  You spray them with less shot and have a higher percentage of clean misses.  It would be tough to convince me that a clean miss from an ultralight pattern is not an advantage.
