PATTERNMASTER PatternMaster™ Code Black Choke Tubes

The Code Black series was created for serious hunters and engineered for optimal performance from nontoxic shot. These tubes incorporate the same wad-control technology that helped revolutionize the shotshell market. Decades of research and development culminated in this ported choke tube that delivers incredibly dense patterns while reducing muzzle jump and recoil. Wad-control technology reduces the shot string to deliver up to 70% more energy on target.  Wad stripping also slows the base of the wad, allowing the shot to exit the barrel before the wad for undisturbed and extremely consistent shot strings. This ensures quicker release of gas resulting in reduced pressure and recoil that effectively separates the wad faster and produces an even more symmetric shot pattern. The tube coating is heat- and cryogenically-treated to strengthen the steel for superior durability in the harshest conditions.

PatternMaster™ Code Black Choke Tubes, Item IK-231260, are not recommended for shotshell loads that use flight pattern wads. Some of Black Clouds products contain these wads so it would not be recommended to shoot Black Cloud shotshells through these chokes.

Winchester SA-08 12-gauge shotguns take the Invector choke tubes. Invector choke tubes, due to the wide range of compatible shotguns, will be listed on the Cabela's website as the "Winchester/ Weatherby/ Mossberg" choke tube. At this time Cabela's does not carry the PatternMaster Code Black Choke Tubes, item IK-231260, in the Invector (Winchester/ Weatherby/ Mossberg) choke tube model.

Question

Wil the code black extended range goose choke work just as well during turkey season or will the turkey choke be a better choice?

My main focus on hunting is during turkey season, however when researching the code black choke I noticed that the turkey choke does not recommend steel shot. I also hunt waterfowl and must use non-toxic shot. I shoot both 3 inch Winchester supreme (# 5 shot for turkey) and 3 1/2 in Black Cloud for waterfowl (#2 shot for goose and #4 for duck)

answer 2
You definately want the CRIO tube for the SBEII shotgun since THAT barrel is a CRIO barrel. IF you shoot lots of 3.5" shells then buy the GOOSE model, IF you shoot mostly 3" loads then the DUCK model. The GOOSE model is longer in length so it can "pull" on the longer wad in the 3.5" shell. They pattern exactly the same BUT I do recommend trying out a few different brands of shells before the season to see what shell gives you the BEST pattern. This is a MUST or you will be VERRRY disappointed in this tube. As it is, you are going to miss easy birds because of the dense pattern of this choke tube especially for inside 25 yards decoying birds. Thats when I just use the factory chokes that are more "forgiving". There will be NO meat left of the carcass if you shoot a duck/goose with this choke in close shots. This is my field hunting and late season weary bird choke tube where 40 and 60 yard KILL shots are the name of the game.

Question

whats the difference between the duck and goose

What is the difference between the duck and goose choke. I've noticed that some chokes that are sold for duck are often similar to a modified choke and those for goose are like a full. Is this the case for these chokes?

answer 2
Actually, there is NO constriction with a patternmaster code black choke tube. The difference with the "Duck" and "Goose" tubes has to do with the shells used. The duck is designed for a 3" shell and the goose is designed for a 3.5" shell. The stud ring in the choke tube stops the wad of the shell at the end of the choke tube. That's why the "Goose" tube is longer for the 3.5" shell with a longer wad. If you shoot a 3" shell in both tubes it will throw a full pattern. For a 3.5" shell the "Duck" tube will be closer to a modified choke and the "Goose" will be a full. They also make a "Decoy" Code Black designed to shoot like an improved cylinder choke but still have the short shot string for killing power but not having to shoot such a tight pattern. I own all 3 and shoot them in my Browning BPS, Cynergy, and Maxus. They work flawlessly.

I shoot a Benelli SBE II and just got the Goose Code Black choke tube and finally got a chance to use it. I didn't get to use it on ducks because we were set up close to our decoys but I shot at the water surface with 3 different sizes of shells. I took aim at a floating piece of wood at least 45 to 50 yards away to see this "Great" pattern. Well, as the website says 24 inch pattern at 40 yards Im not so sure. When I fired, visibly most of the shot did not start to hit the water till it reached the distance aimed and BB's were seen still hitting the water 20 yards beyond. It was cool to watch, and there was a big > 12 foot pattern beyond where the stick was out to 70 to 85 yards. I would never shoot a goose at that range myself but one could get lucky with a pellet or two to take out a bird, then boat over and pick it up. I tried all 3 sizes of shell and then did the same test with the factory MOD tube and me and my hunting buddies agree that the Patternmaster choke gave a tighter pattern overall but DON'T expect some 30 inch pattern at 50 yards!! will never happen. I was disappointed in my findings as the website hype lead me to believe that patterns would be really tight out beyond 45 yards and that is NOT the case. I will have to try to "paper" these loads as well with a rangefinder. The only thing you have to ask yourself is do you use 3.5" shells ....then get the Goose/ Extended range choke OR 3" and less sized shells then get the Duck/Long Range choke as both chokes perform the same way. The Goose choke is a bit longer so it can grab the wad from a 3.5" shell end of story. All the other nonsense is just marketing gobbley gook.....a ported or unported Extended Range/ Goose choke is all the SAME choke using differing metals THAT IS ALL. Im on the fence on this choke because I was expecting the 30" inch pattern with 4 foot shot string at 40 yards to be very visible on the water. I did not see this at ALL. I see videos where guys crumple winged birds beyond 40 yards on the water surface and I thought all the Patternmaster hype was going to give me the same results, THAT will never happen. I'm afraid as the cripple swims away I will still be taking PRAYER shots at it hoping a pellet will take it out. And if said crippled birds is swimming away with neck and head at the water surface You will still see a typical 12 foot pattern of BB's hit ALL around the bird with 25 foot shot string and you will be praying a pellet will hit the goose. There it is in a nutshell. Do NOT use shells with over 1550 FPS speeds, you will take out those wad stopper nubs inside the choke tube and then you will have a 100.00 Improved Cylinder Choke in your bag!

The PatternMaster Code Black Choke Tubes, Item IK-231260, in the Goose model will provide full patterns with any length shells at 40 yards. The shorter length of the Duck model provides full patterns with 3” and 2 3/4” shells, and modified patterns with 3 1/2” shells.

When I talked to their field Rep the only thing you have to ask yourself is Am I using 3.5" shells or only 3" shells for waterfowling? Get the Goose Model if using 3.5" shells or Duck model if mostly using 3" shells. The choke is the same in both versions. At those CLOSE ranges you will have a very tight pattern with this choke tube and you will have to be right on the money when pulling the trigger for the shot, correct lead. The pellet concentration at 25 yards is going to annihilate your bird. This choke is amazing and is tighter than factory Benelli SBE II chokes so this thing really shines 40 to 65 yards where a miss is a miss, and a hit is a DEAD hit. It will take some getting used to as this puts out a tight pattern and is not as forgiving as factory chokes. Late season field hunting on wary birds this thing shines! Early season dumb birds that decoy easy or pass by inside 35 yards use the factory chokes. There is no choke that is right for every bird you will encounter 100% of the time.
