Default 12 Gauge Choke Tubes

I have tried all kinds of choke tubes with my buddies and am never satisfied with one in particular. I own a Benelli SBEII and am willing to try anything. I usually shoot up at my ranch near gainesville texas with distances about 20-30 yards out towards the ducks. I also prefer a high-velocity load with 4 shot or bigger (I dont know if that helps any but hopefully it does). So if yall have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks.

I guess your talking aftermarket?

I hear good things about Pattern Master chokes.

Have you tried the chokes that come with the Benelli. I like the ones it comes with. Don't know much about chokes. Sorry.

Go shoot some clay targets, try out your Full choke if you never have. Do you hunt fields? timber? A lot of people change chokes for what situation they will be in. Timber- Closer shots, maybe use Improved or modified (bigger spray of pellets) Fields- Longer shots, Try out a Full, or an extended choke like the Pattern Master.

Sorry if I was just rambling, but i tried to make some kind of sense...

Hey thanks for helpin out but to answer your question i usually just hunt this big pond/lake out at my ranch. Some of my shots are long but most are just right in front of me or overhead, so its not really timber or fields, but i guess the only way to describe it is that most shots are about a medium range not really long but not really short. Lemme know if that narrows it down to a specific tube instead of 3 or 4. Also the benelli choke tube idea is great i love those tubes so im not necessarily looking for a new aftermarket tube, im just wonderin which one i should be using. Thanks though cuz i had no idea i had just been shootin whichever tube was approved for steel shot.
