Do you know that the pattern of your shotgun can easily be improved with only one little thing? This thing is a choke tube. Chokes help to squeeze down the shot column and get a denser shot pattern to achieve better accuracy and increase the effective range.
Choke tubes range from cylinder designs with no constriction, meaning they have the same diameter as the bore of your shotgun, to extra-full designs with super-tight constriction. Generally, cylinder choke tubes are for service shotguns of law enforcement personnel, whereas constriction designs are best for hunting waterfowl, turkey, and small game. The more constriction is applied in a choke, the longer shot is held tight and the farther it’s delivered.
There are many choke tube brands, and one of the leading is Carlson’s.

Carlson’s delivers best-in-class dependable chokes for more than 34 years. The company uses proprietary software to analyze load and choke tube combos based on tons of collected patterning and test data. It’s a truly American company proud of its US-based production that uses the CNC milling process for machining Carlson’s 12 and 20 gauge as well as .410 choke tubes from heat-treated stainless steel bars. The company also manufactures chokes for 10 and 28 ga shotguns.
Created in cooperation with Federal, the Carlson’s Black Cloud choke tube series for 12- and 20-gauge shotguns is developed to ensure devastating penetration of Federal’s Black Cloud ammo or any other steel shotshells. The stainless steel chokes are coated with titanium to deal with build-up.
Carlson’s Extended choke tubes are best for turkey hunting. The chokes feature a knurled end and a quarter longer parallel section to create high-density patterns.
