Ray, SD or Duty. Shooting it through my Weatherby SA459-TR 12ga. I figure nothing more than 35 yards.

Perhaps, at the time, I was concerned about a nonexistent problem (choke tubes possibly loosening up) and slugs were not recommended for choked tubes so my SD shotguns do not use choke tubes and are all cylinder bored. The Mossberg is the only one with a bayonet lug though. grin From what I have read about the FliteControl ammo, it seems to have tight patterns up to 35 yards. So you should be fine with an unported cylinder choke tube.

I just noticed that you have a Weatherby 12. I thought yours was a 20. Is it Turkish Weatherby with a pistol grip?

Ray. I do have TWO of the Weatherby 20ga shotguns. My original "Theory" was by going with the 20 Patty would have one to use without getting pounded by a 12. One is the SA459-TR the other PA459-TR.

My 12ga is the SA459-TR Semi auto. When Patty figured out we didn't have a 12ga she said we NEEDED a 12ga shotgun, so I found one that I am used to and like.

They all three have extended screw in chokes. That is why I am looking for a new choke for the 12. The 20s will be shot with conventional buckshot and slugs and are Cylinder bore so I won't need to change them up.

I reckon I will go with a Carlson's choke tube. I emailed them and Shane Carlson recommended a .715 constriction tube, (IC) which is what I actually wanted. I just don't care for full cylinder bore chokes.

OK. Well, being the simple Yankee that I am, I opted for simplicity so that I wouldn't need to remember which shotgun had what choke. And which ones I could use slugs in. They are all the same. Just have to remember which end points towards the zombies. : grin

That was my thoughts as well Ray. But then Patty said we NEEDED a 12, so... Win win for me! grin
