Which Turkey Choke Is THE Best?

When you search the internet for the best turkey choke, it's easy to find the bigger brand names that have been part of the industry for years. But what about the other guys? Are there others around that are equally as good if not better?

If you read last week's article about how to choose a turkey choke and were surprised by the suggestion that you may not even need a new one, you will probably want to keep reading.

By now you've hopefully done quite a bit of your own research, read a ton of articles, and watched even more videos (including ours). Preferably, you've been out on the range and shot some turkey targets, too. After all of that, you may have decided that you need a new turkey choke this year.

What's the next step in buying a choke?

At this point, you should have a few turkey loads you want to try out. Probably the most important thing here is to understand the makeup of your load. Some choke tubes are actually designed to use only with lead shot, while others are made more specifically for Tungsten Super Shot (TSS) loads, so that's a great place to start.

Like we mentioned last week, keep up the research.

When you search the internet for the best turkey choke, it's easy to find the bigger brand names that have been part of the industry for years.
