Patternmaster's SHORT RANGE tubes will extend out the end of your barrel about 3/8 of an inch and has an effective range out to 40 yards. You will see a pattern similar to an Improved Cylinder constriction choke on paper, but because of the patented "stud ring" inside the tube, there is a much shorter shot string. This shorter shot string will allow more shot on target all at once so your down range energy is sure to kill instead of cripple. Our SHORT RANGE tubes can be used with steel or other non-toxic ammunition as well as lead, and with 2 ¾" 3" and 3 ½" shells. Pick your favorite shot size to use which can range from 8 to BB Non-Toxic/Steel and Lead 8 to 000 Buck. SHORT RANGE tubes only come in Black and are not ported. Patternmaster tubes are made of Carpenter Custom 630 (aircraft quality) 17-4ph stainless steel and are heat treated to the optimum level for best performance.
Patternmaster's MID RANGE tubes will extend out the end of your barrel about 5/8 of an inch and has an effective range out to 50 yards.
Patternmaster's LONG RANGE tubes will extend out the end of your barrel 1 inch and has an effective range out to 60 yards.
Patternmaster's EXTENDED RANGE tubes extend out the end of your barrel 1 1/2 inches and has an effective range out to 70 yards.
Note: Testing done by Ballistics Performance has determined that ammunition with velocity of 1550fps and below will achieve the best results with the Patternmaster Classic and the Code Black Tubes.
Not for use with ammunition containing flight control wad or slug ammunition.
