Trulock Introduces New Choke Line for Federal’s Heavyweight TSS Turkey Loads

posted on February 14, 2018

Trulock has announced a new line of chokes that have been carefully engineered to achieve maximum performance with Federal Premium’s new Heavyweight TSS No. 7 and No. 9 turkey loads.

Federal’s new shotshells feature design improvements that allow for extreme downrange performance, but older chokes are typically designed for a wide range of standard loads and don’t take full advantage of the improved shotshells. In order to get the most from these loads, the new Trulock TSS chokes feature a design mated with specific exit diameters for each size of shot, as testing showed that different configurations worked best for each size of shot.

According to Trulock, testing results at 40-yard targets showed 100 percent patterns in a 30-inch circle, 90 percent patterns in a 20-inch circle and 60 percent patterns in a 10-inch circle.

The new Trulock TSS chokes are currently available in Invector, Invector Plus, Beretta/Benelli Mobil, Crio Plus, Rem Choke and M835, all in 12-gauge. Additional gauge offerings will be available soon.
