Turkey hunting if done right is a one-shot game. "Special" anything is usually over-priced hype. That's not saying that there hasn't been a ton of birds killed with such chokes, but let's face it - everyone has a product to sell. There are a lot of similarities between turkey hunting and archery hunting. Would you take your stick and string out without first making sure that your arrows matched your bow and they were going to fly where you want them to? Equal to your choke are the shells that you're shooting through it and if you don't know how they perform you could be jeopardizing an opportunity. It's important to know what your effective killing range is which means patterning your gun at different distances to see what you're working with. for close range stuff, it doesn't generally matter, but as you start reaching out, it can matter a lot. You would probably also see a difference in performance between between two different manufacturers loads with the same specs. A good friend of mine gets better patterning with #4's than he does with #6's and the only way he found that out was by trying a few different loads from different manufacturers. What's great out of your gun may not be so great out of someone else's. By going through a patterning process, you'll be going out with full confidence that your opportunities result in clean, lethal, one-shot kills. Good luck!
