Rhino choke with Winchester Extended Range shells?
« on: March 06, 2010, 09:37:02 PM »
Has anyone tried the Rhino choke with the Winchesters Extended Range shells yet?  I was wondering how they performed with this combination.  (3 inch ,#4 shot).  Last year I used the Nitros 4x5x7s with the Rhino choke but they are quite expensive!

I use a Pure Gold choke. I am trying the Nitros this year. I recently shot the new Hevi shot Magnum blend 5X6X7. Super pattern. You might want to try these.

Never tried the choke, but I love the Winchester Extended range. I forgot to change chokes last year and killed a jake at 30yrds with a modified choke and #5 3in extended range.

I use a Gobblin Thunder turkey choke by Kick's. I've heard nothing but good feed back on both the Rhino and Pure Gold chokes. I shoot Winchester Supreme High Velocity #5 shot 3 1/2 inch. I've been very pleased with that load. I'd like to try the extended range loads however, I've had such good success with what I've been using it hard to change but I'm always looking for anything to gain that extra advantage..... @--0--0118

Update!  Today I tried the Winchester Extended Range in my Browning Gold Hunter (3 in.)  with the Rhino choke at 40 yards.  Then I tried those much cheaper shells -the Remington Nitros (#4 shot) .  I noticed that there wasn"t any noticable difference between the two.  I haven"t  tried the Hevi Shot shells yet.  I may try them next!   But I had better hurry because Alabama"s  turkey season starts next week!    Thanks for sharing your results!

I shoot a rhino with 4x6x7 3 inch shells and it is awesome i have shot the Win extended range and they really work too-- You may want to try the Remington Duplex shells 4s and 6s mixed- They are awesome- if you sighted in for the Nitros the Duplex will shoot a little lower- all of these rounds are devastating at 40-45 yards a least for me they are ;D

I'm using the Rhino .660 and Nitros H378I outta my Benelli M2 with excellent results.  Prior to the Nitros, I was shooting Hevi Shot #5 and was less than satisfied.  I tried the Rhino .660 and the Jellyhead with the Hevi Shot and the results were similar.  

I'd like to try the Winchester XR, but I dont think they will do as good as the Nitros.

Looks like that will get the job done. How many yards away from the target were you on that shot?

40 yards.

If I'm reading your target correctly, the shot was clustered in a 10" x 10" pattern.  If so, at 40 yds that is one tight pattern.  I would think you almost need a scope or a red dot sight.

Update!  After seeing what the hevi-shot #6 shell did to the ol' toms head this morning, I think I will probably start buying these in the future. I was impressed with the way this hevi- shot  shot thru the brush!   I normally use #4 shot in other shells but thought I would try #6s  since this was a heavier load.  I'm glad I did!   I shot from a 3 inch Mossburg with just a Mossburg screw-in. choke.  Also, they're about 1/3 of the cost of Nitros 4x5x7's.  I think I'll be buying more of these Hevi- shots!

Got my eye on a Burris FastFire red dot.
