New Loads and Chokes for 2014

New Loads and Chokes for 2014

The evolution of steel shot has been impressive and today's offerings are light years beyond those of just a decade ago. Highly specialized shells that are designed for specific situations are the norm now, and not only do they give us a better chance of rounding out a limit, but they also greatly cut down on cripples. These next-generation shells help us become more effective waterfowlers. But it takes more than sliding a few rounds into your scattergun.


To gain the utmost confidence you're hitting birds with the most lethal options available, it's advisable to research chokes. Specific loads demand certain tubes, and if you're employing top-dollar fodder without an appropriate choke, you're only harnessing a portion of the knockdown power available.



Check out the top loads and chokes for 2014:
