I have a 835 I bought used and it has a modified tube installed. I am going to purchase a new choke and I was wanting some perspective on brands. Who has gotten good results with his/her turkey choke tubes. If y'all can, I also need some input on store bought loads that have done you well.

I have no experiance with that gun.

But you might give Carlsons a try.
They have good prices on tubes, and they will do what they say they will do.

Chrome plating, slots and/or holes, a really killer snazzy name, and a fat price tag will not put more pellets in the pattern. It will put more dollars in the makers pockets. I think your barrel is backbored/overbored so I would check on that first, and then make sure you get an appropriate tube. Keep in mind that "Full" killed a whole lot of turkeys before the others were ever dreamed of.

I killed my first turkey as a boy with my uncle's western Auto "Revelations" 12ga(looked a lot like a mossberg 500). I don't really care about spit shine or terminology and I do know the barrel is backbored out to about 10ga. I just want a good 4 or 5 pellets in the kill zone at 45 yds.

Post your question here:

and you'll find some guys who actually have 835s and have tried various chokes.

Yes, the 835 is overbored and it takes Mossberg Accu-Mag chokes.

I really doubt that turkey chokes do any better than plain full chokes. It is simple physics, if you constrict a barrel to much any improvement in the pattern is negated by shot deformation. Turkey chokes supposedly constrict the barrel so much the shot forms a string instead of a pattern, that has to deform a lot of shot.

This is partly right, there is indeed a point of diminishing returns where too much constriction causes deformation and blown patterns.

However, there is a fair amount of room between that point and full choke where turkey chokes work very well and produce tighter patterns than full.

You don't have to buy a "chrome plated" $90 designer turkey choke, but if all you have is a modified choke and are going to buy a new choke anyway for turkey hunting, there are plenty of good turkey chokes that will give you much better patterns for not much more money than a full.

Yea, deer freak, I had an Ultimag a few years back that had a wally world special choke that I thought was over constrictive. It didn't shoot any better than the modified 870 I had. I think it was around .675 and I cant remember the name. I just wanted to get some first hand info on some tubes people liked.

And a lot of that will be determined by the ammo itself - chilled lead, hard lead, nickel or copper plated, steel, no-tox, etc.....

The pattern plate is your friend
