Choke Tube for Home Defense Shotgun Question. Login/Join

I recently replaced my Winchester 1300 Defender 12 Gauge Pistol Grip model with the Winchester SXP Extreme Defender FDE 12 gauge.



The question: This shotgun came standard with a Breacher Tube, which I will have no use for. When I remove the tube, I assume I need to install a choke tube to prevent fouling of the threads in the barrel. Is that correct?
I am using Federal LE Flight Control 1 Buck and will, if needed use a Cylinder Choke.

Thanks for your responses.

What’s the question?

Don't ever shoot a screw-in choke gun without a choke tube installed. I mean, I doubt you'll ruin it the first time, but it can definitely damage the threads.

Cylinder choke is going to be the most open choke and should be best for close range.

I've used a cylinder choke with Flight Control buckshot. It held tight patterns out to 25 yards.

Remington 870 Police models had fixed improved cylinder chokes for tighter patterns at 25 yards with standard buckshot, not sure if they still do.

Federal Flight control tightens up the pattern with a cylinder bore or choke (effectively no choke). It's really up to you, the shells you use, and how your particular shotgun patterns.

Not sure if it makes any difference which choke for home. Spread will not be much different at most house distances
