Carlson’s Choke Tubes

This year, in the turkey hunting woods, we made a switch to Carlson’s Choke Tubes Long Beard XR coupled with the Winchester Long Beard XR shells. Results on the range were incredible and we couldn’t wait to get a turkey in front of the combination. The pattern is impressive well down range and offers 10% greater penetration over standard lead loads at distances of more than 50 yards. While we didn’t need the long range capability in this short Texas turkey hunt, it’s nice to know you have it in case that longbeard hangs up.
