Question RE CJ Chokes?

Postby GRV01 » 16 Mar 2017 12

According to this snap from the CJ Manual one must change the choke to the thread protector (which i read is essentially a cylinder bore) to fire 45LC or 410 slugs and the rifled choke to fire any other 410 shot load

My question is can I not? If i just wanted to *safely* fire say 000 buck and 45LC couldnt i install the tgread protector choke and 'set it and forget it'? What do i lose besides accuracy/patterning with shot loads?

I think you could go with Option #2 and then do a pattern test at various distances to see if the performance is acceptable. I probably would use a very good choke tube grease especially if you are not going to remove it. When you want it to come out, you will want it to come out.

Nice, hadnt considered chokes getting stuck. Despite my reluctance to remove a choke id more likely take it out during cleaning anyway so i guess what i really eanted to avoid was switching them

The good folks at 410handgun.com did pattern testing and a number of firearms in 410 anf even with the rifled choke out it patternd surprisingly well http://410handguns.com/rossi.html

Thanks for the info
