I kind of remember reading something to the effect of you should (or shouldn’t) use a ported choke tube with some sort of shot (i.e., lead, hevi, etc.).  I have not been able to google up anything about it though.  Does anyone know anything about this?  I always have used an un-ported tube, but was thinking of trying a new one.

Will do, I am talking about turkey guns.  After I posted this, I ran across a recommendation for Black Cloud (waterfowl) of not using ported—maybe that’s what I was remembering.

I’ve read that you’re not supposed to used black cloud with ported choke tubes. I have a kicks for waterfowl and I think they make seperate chokes for black cloud shells. I know hevi-shot makes a choke for thier ammo as well. Not sure if they mess up the choke or the shells just patterns like garbage.

Picked up a Carlson’s yesterday, ported.  Anxious to see how it will do.  I saw the hevi-shot brand tubes, they were about $30 more than the Carlson’s.  Carlson’s has been around for a while so they must be doing something right (at least that’s what I figured).

I have a primos choke and used the hevi shot 3 1/2 inch 5,6,7 blend shot and this stuff is killer!  Definetly the best turkey loads i have ever shot.
