Bought me a new Toy for this year, looking for choke/shell recommendations for a 12ga 835.
My current rig is a Super X2 with an HS Strut undertaker -0.675" and I use Winchester 3 1/2" Supremes which seem to do well out to about 40-45 yards.
Of course Ill pattern it, just wanted a little feedback from those with this gun.

Thanks

I have the 835 and the undertaker choke. I shoot 3 inch hevi shot magnum blends and couldnt be happier with the way this setup performs.

I have an 835 and up until last year used the factory extra full choke and 3 1/2" Winchester Supreme #5's. It was good to about 50 yards. Last year I switched to a jellyhead choke and hevi shot mag blends. I have all the confidence in the world at 60 yards from shooting it but still prefer they be much closer.

I shot a 835 with a rhino and magnum blends great results, also have shot it with the jelly head and hevi shot all with magnum blends. still great results. I personally hate the undertaker choke never had good luck out of them. but that's just my opinion.

I have this setup except for I have a 935. I too agree that this combo is one of the best I've seen for the 835/935.
