    I am looking for aftermarket choke tube that will give me an even pattern at roughly 40 to 50 yards. I am having a problem with the wading from the shot passing through my pattern, so i was also looking for a choke that would slow the wading down as well. Any advice would be great.

    How is the wad passing thru your pattern? You do know the shot goes way much faster than the heavy lead or steel load.

    The plastic or cotton or paper wad is not all that heavy of aerodynamic ;)

    Pick up a shotgun and hunt waterfowl...you'll get it.

    Trust me I've killed ducks before and even coots , your wadding is not going thru your pattern. Go to a shotgun range, look at the trap line, measure off where the waddings are located at in comparisons to the line and then get back to us.


    fwiw
    If you want consistent patterns at 40-50yards, you need to be looking at the loads available,shot size,and choke-size.


    Take alook at these pictures to see actual shotgun blast and shot and cup leaving the barrel. Take note for the last photo and look at the shotcup and shot and that's within ms out of the barrel.

    Bottom line the cup or wadding or any material behind the shot is lighter, doesn't fly as fast as the lead/steel, is not aerodynamic, heck 90% of the time it doesn't fly in the same direction as the shot load or have the same trajectory.
