Last year I used a .690 Jellyhead out of my Mossy 835 ulti-mag using Winchester Supremes #5 and had a great pattern. This year I'm switching to HeviShot Mag Blend 5,6,7 and I'm going to try a Truglo SSX .670 and the Jellyhead to see which one gives the best pattern tomorrow—I'll post the results when I get back for you.

TruGlo SSX(Strut Stopper Xtreme) .670 will be the best shooting choke you will probably find in the 835 for the money. I'll show you a pattern.



You can buy them on ebay for under $40 shipped. Or Clark sells them at http://www.allaboutshooting.com

The .670 SSX with the 3" 2oz magblends did the best for me—130 pellets at 40yards out of my 835. The .690 jellyhead with the same shell also gave me 130 pellets at 40 yards, but the pattern was very broken with lots of holes in it. I'm going to polish the barrel and see if it improves the pattern and pellet count any.

Thanks for the input TNDeerGuy, they both sure sound good enough to get a bird a 40 yards +.
Thank you for the offer timberjack, but I think until I hear back from the job that I had an interview for, I'm gonna use the one I currently have (the wheel tax shot sky high here and took away more than I planned). If I get the job, I may be back in contact with you.
