Until recently, everyone thought that shotgun chokes "work" by funneling down metal shot pellets from a bore-size wad into a smaller stream under pressure, like a garden hose does with water. It was not really understood why the spread of pellets from a shotshell could be concentrated at a distance onto a target.
Of course, the more shot that can be made to hit the target instantly, the greater the killing power. It is true that pattern targets don't lie. Funnel chokes seem to do a pretty good job on them. But they don't tell you the whole trutheither.
Stop and think about it, we live in a 3-dimensional world. Shot patterns are also 3-dimensional. The pattern board only shows you 2 dimensions, height and width. It does not show you pattern depth, which is the distance between the foremost and the rearmost pellet. Olin pointed out years ago that the "shot string" from lead shot loads of his day were approximately 12 feet in length at 40 yards. Like a crafty wizard performing a magic trick, you cannot see the "slight-of-hand" that's behind the scenes.
But, you can't deny the results. Dense 3-D patterns are produced by replacing the old "funnel choke" technology with a patented wad retarding system which:. Dense 3-D patterns are produced by replacing the old "funnel choke" technology with a patented wad retarding system which: "Retards" the wad to seal the muzzle as long as possible, separates the shot from the wad to minimize shot string length and minimize the gas turbulence which will otherwise increase pattern width and height and create irregular "poor" patterns.
Keeps the shot charge at bore diameter throughout the length of the barrel and out of the muzzle. Conventional constriction "funnel chokes" squeeze down on the shot charge within the wad and deform soft-metal pellets within the shotcup wad, and place incredible stresses on the barrel when large, hard shot are used such as steel and tungsten-iron. The performance of any Wad Wizard tube may be varied for different ranges and uses by choice of the shot shell used.
Best results come from ammo using one-piece plastic shot cups, especially tough steel shot one-piece wads. Inpromarketing Corp. Please read instructions carefully prior to installation.

Comp-N-Choke has combined precise tolerance machining with more than 30 years of shotgun ballistic research to produce choke tubes that deliver denser, more consistent patterning for all types of hunting and shooting sports.
Comp-N-Choke tubes are computer CNC machined for precise tolerances and are made from high quality grade stainless steel. In addition, all of our machining and finishing processes are done within the United States. The extended, slot-ported choke design of the chokes slows the wad which allows the shot column to get out and away without the wad flying into it and distorting your pattern.
In addition, the porting vents the gases to relieve back pressure. The in-barrel portion of the chokes is conical, which is where the choking happens. The extended section is parallel on the interior, which holds the shot column at the final constriction.
Choke Tube for Block/Turkey Shoots?
The advantage of this design is that the shot column is traveling straight when it exits. This increased density and pattern quality allows you to use a more open constriction, usually one full choke size, without diminished performance.
The extended design allows for easy field installation and quick changes with just your fingers. There are no special tools or wrenches required.

Constriction choke tubes. Posted: Sat Jul 31, pm. Hey, I saw this and was wondering if someone could tell me the differences between a wad retarding choke tube and a constriction type choke tube. One better than the other? Thanks Drake. I suppose constriction chokes are simply the difference in bore size and tube ID at the minimum, I can't say I have ever seen them advertised that way either. I must get out more Stock barrel threads in good shape, choke tight, shouldn't be a problem using them.
How much good you will get out of them would be my question. As a side note, the originator of the ported choke tube, did so to allow gases to escape behind the wad to allow it to slow quicker, not interfering with the shotcharge. Posted: Sun Aug 01, am. There is a variety of these "wad stripper" chokes available. A person would need to take the time to test them in their gun with their loads to determine if they would be of any value to them.
I'm going to pattern my diffusion choke soon but so far I can tell that I gained a couple targets in Skeet. Not your average retarded choke. Posted: Mon Aug 02, am. I believe that amoung the first of the "wad retarding" barrels were made by Ljutic for their line of trap guns.
I had one ser number it had 3 concentric rings about 2 inches from the muzzel end of the barrel. Cant say for sure if it worked as advertised, but that gun was a clay crunching death ray Posted: Mon Aug 02, pm. I have one choke tube not sure of make but it has striaght rifleing which is supposed to stop the shot collomn from any spring action imparted on it by the machineing of the barrel and then it has 2 circular groves about 2 " from the end of the barrel much like mentioned in the post above.
