    Going to do some patterning. But was wondering, in general is there an advantage to pattern uniformity with extended over flush-mounted chokes? Thanks for your comments.

    I have been using some Briley and now Carlson extended choke tubes. I think results are better than factory stock, but nothing earth ****tering in what I have seen in my patterning. I am only running IC and LM and Carlson Mid Range, have an IM but haven't felt need to put it in ever. It is ease to change tubes and if one gets swelled, you can likely get it out.

    I personally prefer the extended because the ease of removing the choke.

    I like them for removal, ease of ID what choke is in there, and I like the fact the constriction is further away from the barrel, or at least extended as much as possible, ie. in the event the shot deforms the choke, I hope by having an extended choke there are a lot less chances it will damage the barrel or get stuck in the barrel.
