Well I've run into a problem here in Arkansas. I left my turkey choke back in Texas and all I have is my pattern master duck choke. I'm a broke college student and really don't want to go buy another turkey choke, so is it possible to shoot a turkey load through a duck choke? I don't want to blow the choke out of the barrel so I may be out of luck. Thanks for the help

Details
Patternmaster Code Black Duck Shotgun Choke Tubes are a unique in design. This design ensures quicker release of gas that will result in reduced pressure and recoil that effectively separates the wad faster and produces an even more symmetric shot pattern. Code Black tubes have been coated with a bronze titanium blend to better withstand heat and corrosion. Once again Patternmaster has gone to the limits to make a top-of-the-line shooting accessory for the extreme hunting experience. The ducks had better watch out!

WARNING: This tube is not to be used with slug ammunition, or ammunition that contains a wad/shot cup design as "flight control" or "in flight separation." For best results, Ballistic Performance LLC, recommends ammunition velocities below 1550fps.

Are you shooting Federal Heavyweight?
Based on what was posted about your choke. That is the only one ammo I know of that qualifies. That choke won't be as tight as your turkey choke.

I Understand the broke part,but if you are close to a Walmart you might be able to find an inexpensive turkey choke there or even something you can shoot lead through.

Get some regular ol high brass lead 5's or 6's. Good to go. Could also buy a box of steel shot. Have killed turkeys with both out of a patternmaster. Don't over think it.

Just get the tightest choke you have and limit your shots.

I had a similar issue last year and killed my bird with Improved Modified and 3" #6s no issue.

Killed lots of gobblers with fixed choke shotguns. Just pattern it with #5s or #6s regular lead shot and will have to call them in a little closer but go hunt.

The Pattern Master Duck choke patters tighter with 3" shells than 3-1/2s, fyi.
