t/c 45 lc/ 410 barrel question

I have a 45/410 barrel with removable choke. I still dont understand why it is removable. Do I have to remove choke when shooting 45 rounds or slugs. I had an origional version of this years ago and they didnt have this feature. Would some one please explain this concept to me. Thanks....

Yes, when shooting 45 LC; you should remove the choke.

It's sometimes called a "shredder". It's purpose is to stop the spin that was imparted on the shot shell wad by the rifling.

If the shot shell wad is spinning when it exits the barrel, it dramatically alters the pattern. This is one of the drawbacks of the Taurus Judge.

No Problem,

Let me know if you ever get tired of that barrel. I had one at one time and lost it.

I have one in a 10 inch round barrel that does not need the choke. I like not having to add or remove the choke. That 410 round does a good job!

I have one of these in 10" barrel and was using it for dove hunting because it was to easy to shoot doves with a 12G and I was getting my limit in about an hour verses 20-30 minutes with a 12G. But went back to 12G because the 410 round got too expensive when the Judge craze started.
