I was thinking of getting an extended ported Imp.Mod or full choke for my trap gun. I already have extended tubes, Does anyone think the ported tubes pattern or help any more than just the regular extended tubes?
Some people say the porting strips the wad from the shot and will yield hotter cores for the pattern - --- I dont know if they help or not - the extended part helps protect the bore from the grit and dings - and the porting makes it easier to spot the gun in the rack at the shoot ----Otherwise to each their own ---if you got'em shoot'em - if not don't, don't sweat it
In my opinion they only make mess on the end of your barrel. I would stick with the non-ported extended tubes. I recently bought 5 (non-ported) extended choke tubes from Angle Port and highly recommend them for price and performance.
A friend of mine recently bought Rhino ported tubes for his new unsingle Beretta and the end of the barrel is always a mess with debris. I think barrel porting is fine but would definitely stay away from the ported choke tubes.
