Trulock introduced its new Boar Blaster choke tube two years ago,
and users have found the device pays for itself in hams and chops.
The Boar Blaster was designed with a new type of forcing cone,
providing on-target accuracy to 40 yards and beyond.
Hog hunting can be fast-paced, with moving
targets in tight quarters. Savvy hunters stack
the odds in their favour by using a shotgun to
provide several advantages for success.
A shotgun is designed to be pointed and swung on a
target, requiring quick reaction times. Using a shotgun
can be the diff erence between taking home multiple
hogs, or just one.
Th e design of Trulock’s Boar Blaster choke tubes
uses fi ve parallel steps leading into the parallel section
and gives tighter patterns with every brand of 00/000
buckshot the engineers could get their hands on. Th e
result was patterns that consistently grouped pellets 20
per ent tighter at 40 yards.
Buckshot in sizes 00 and 000 are more than
adequate to bring down even the biggest hog.
Shotshells pattern diff erently because they shoot at
diff erent velocities and have diff erent pellet counts as in
2¾ and 3in shotshells. As a rule, Boar Blaster extended
chokes with a constriction of .030 consistently provided
the tightest, uniform patterns.
Patterning any shotgun with a variety of shot
options is the best way to dial in for greatest accuracy.
Assorted brands will perform diff erently, and the one
that is most consistent in your gun, with the Boar
Blaster choke, will put the smackdown on hogs when
you pull the trigger.
To reduce recoil and decrease the recovery time for
a second or third shot, consider using the 2¾in loads.
Boar Blaster engineers noted that even though there
are fewer pellets in these loads, there were consistently
more pellets in the kill zone when using the Boar
Blaster choke compared to other chokes’ full-choke
results. Th e best advice is to shoot and compare
diff erent loads to fi nd tighter patterns for quick kills.
Boar Blaster choke tubes are available to fi t most
popular 12-gauge shotguns.
