The Best Chokes for a HEVI-Shot

Produced by Environ-Metal, HEVI-Shot was developed as a non-toxic lead shot for waterfowl and game hunters. Combining tungsten, iron, nickel and two alloys, HEVI-Shot has the ability to achieve tight, hard hitting shot patterns. Hunters use different choke tubes to control the size of the pattern depending on the intended game. The best choke tubes will control the expansion of the pellets for better knockdown power on your game at various distances.


Rhino ported choke tubes are available for turkey or waterfowl HEVI-Shot loads. The chokes will fit nearly any shotgun that has a screw-in choke tube system. According to Jesse's Hunting and Outdoors Pro-Staff, Rhino choke tubes performed consistently with HEVI-Shot at 40 yards. A field test by the pro-staff used a 3-inch HEVI-Shot Magnum Turkey Load and shot 78 pellets inside a 10-inch circle and another 126 pellets in the outer 30-inch circle. With the ability to put 78 pellets in a small circle at 40 yards, Rhino choke tubes are one of the best for HEVI-Shot.


Patternmaster has the reputation for producing tight, consistent patterns using steel shot and buckshot, but they are also one of the best chokes for HEVI-Shot. According to Sean Sutherland in a field test review on Cabela's, the Patternmaster Long-Range choke tube is one of the best for waterfowl hunting due to its dense patterning. The ported design reduces barrel jump on every shot and the specific construction slows the wad as it leaves the barrel. Different models are available for different wingshooting hunts and will fit major gun manufacturers including Remingtom, Beretta, Benelli, Browning and Mossberg.

Hunter's Specialties

The Undertake is made from chrome-moly, aircraft quality allow that is heat treated to handle HEVI-Shot. Different models are available to fit different shotguns including Remington, Mossberg, Winchester, Weatherby, Ithaca, Beretta, Thompson Center, Benelli and Browning.
