I have read that no two guns will shoot the exact pattern even using the same choke and loads. My question to you guys shooting an 870 is: What choke tube have you used that gives you the best pattern between 40-50 yards? I know you should try to get them in close but I am just curious.....ALL of my shots this past spring were well within 30 yards but if the time comes for a long shot I don't want to question if I can make a clean kill. I'm looking at others experience before I were buy another choke tube.

My buddy has an 870 and he uses a Comp-n-Choke. Very good pattern at 40yds.

I use a Gobblin Thunder .665 right now and it is awesome at 40 yards but at 45-50 it starts to get scraggly.

I would check into a Rhino tube. A buddy of mine uses one in his encore and it is just plain awesome. Everyone on the net says the same. A little pricey at about 100 bux but if you want the pattern its worth it. I am using an Indian Creek in my 835 and it does pretty good. I have been thinking about swapping to the 870 though and if I do I will be getting the rhino as well.

I shoot an 870 SM and a Rhino .660" with #6 Winchester hi velocity Supreme 2 oz.

I found that Fiocci nickle plated #6 is awesome and inexpensive.

I have a .653" Rhino for it too that shoots the snot out of the Nitro shells, but I bought the triplex loads, and too many #7 1/2`s for my liking.

I like Comp-N-Choke better than Gobblin Thunder tubes, and would like to try an Indian Creek, but just don`t feel like I need one.

Hastings .640 / Winchester Supreme #4

Remember, the MMEDP (Maximum Manditory Ethical Distance Police) will flog you for shooting at one over X yards!

I hear you! I like them in close too, just not too close. But, there is no reason not to make a long distance dial up if you have the right combination to put him down!

Rhino chokes are awesome, but if you really want to extend your range and/or pattern density, check out Nitro Ammunition's website. This combo is an expensive investment, but has devestating results! I use their hevi shot 4x5x7 in 3" out of my 11-87 paired with a rhino choke and wouldn't even think of trying another shell or choke.
