I shot some of the new non-lead high-density turkey shells recently, in 3- and 3.5-inch loads–and my shoulder still hasn’t forgiven me! They packed a real wallop, and my follow up shots were all over the place. Which shouldn’t be surprising. The laws of physics say that, to push out pellets heavier than lead, at speeds equal to or greater than lead shells, these newer turkey loads are probably going to have more recoil than lead shot loads.
Knowing this, the folks at Hunter’s Specialties have introduced the new Undertaker XT Ported Choke Tubes, designed to produce optimum pattern density with today’s high efficiency, higher impact turkey loads.
One of the two models is designed specifically for high-density loads, and here Hunter’s Specialties has doubled the number of ports versus a standard tube to help spread out the recoil and reduce barrel jump. That should help keep turkey hunters on target for follow up shots.
A second model is a non-ported version, made for turkey hunting with lead loads that use the newer flight control wads. No ports in this version, as loads using flight control wads, the people at Hunter’s Specialties, don’t pattern terribly well in ported chokes.
Both models are 3 inches long with a knurled end for easy hand installation. Undertaker XT Ported Choke Tubes come in both 20 ga. and 12 ga. versions to fit most popular shotguns on the market.
