I am thinking of taking out my Super Black Eagle II. This will be it's first time out. I was reading through the paperwork and going through the gun. It came with 5 chokes. I am stuck on which one I should use. If I had more time I could go out and play with them to see, but I am limited on time. I assume the full choke would be the one to use but the full that they included is for lead, not steel. (I have a box of Federal Premium BlackCloud here- 3.5 inch, 1.5 oz, BB shot, 1500 fps) I was going to head out and run some through the gun and make a couple stands. (I also have a box of Kent Fasteel, 3 inch, 1 1/8 load charge 2 shot size, 1560 fps)I was thinking the 3 1/2 inch shells would be better right? Anyway, back to the choke issue...The full choke is not for steel, there is also an "improved modified" that is not for steel. The ones that are for steel are Modified, Improved Cylinder and Skeet
. The manual does not give any info about what these are. Which is my best bet for dropping dogs with the Federal ammo? (unless the Kent would be better but I don't think that is the case) If needed I could run by the store and pick up other shells. (they always seem to be out of everything I am looking for!) If that is the best way, make sure to give me details on what to get. (options too as they are always out of everything) Also, while on the choke topic... anyone use the Primos Dead dog choke?https://shop.primos....lliberetta.aspx
It seems that the Primos choke will not work for steel shot- what are people going to be using in CA now that lead is banned? I was thinking steel?Any better choke I should look at picking up? (not today as i would need to order online) Thanks for the help guys!BTW- it is a Benelli SBE II w/ a 28 inch barrel.
