Patternmaster 12GA Goose Code Black
Patternmaster's CODE BLACK GOOSE tubes will extend out the end of your barrel 1 1/2 inches and has an effective range of 80 yards. The difference between the Patternmaster CODE BLACK DUCK and Patternmaster CODE BLACK GOOSE is the length the tube sticks out the barrel. (DUCK=1" vs. GOOSE=1 ½") The added length is to accommodate a 3 ½" shell and still achieve a Full pattern. You will see a patterns similar to a Full constriction choke on paper with a 2 ¾" 3' and 3 ½" shell, but because of the patented "stud ring" inside the tube, there is a much shorter shot string. This shorter shot string will allow more shot on target all at once so your down range energy is sure to kill instead of cripple. Pick your favorite shot size to use which can range from 8 to T-Shot Non-Toxic/Steel and Lead 8 to 000 Buck. CODE BLACK GOOSE tubes only come in a Non-Reflective Bronze titanium coating and are ported. Patternmaster tubes are made of Carpenter Custom 630 (aircraft quality) 17-4ph stainless steel and are heat treated to the optimum level for best performance.
Ratings & Reviews
i love this choke tube. I either miss or the duck/goose falls hard. Number of lost birds and shells burned for swatting has fallen significantly since moving to this choke. For duck decoy hunts (under 30 yards) i put in lighter loads so the birds are not torn up too bad. My effective range is 50 yards on duck and geese with proper loads out of an SBEII. The pattern on a swatted bird is strong testimony of Patternmaster's claim on improved shot string.
Not quite as advertised
I wouldn't say 80yds but it does ok out to 50yds with steel #3-BB. #8 lead is murder on doves or crows beyond that.
