My name is Jimmy Washam. I am a machinist by trade and a big game hunter by choice. I have been hunting since 1966. Coming from a family of gunsmiths, I became somewhat of a gunsmith myself in 1975. I take my work, hunting and fishing very seriously. I strive for perfection in both work and play. I have many trophies to my credit. I went to work for Precision Products Machine and Fabrication in 1990. The company has firearm contracts with Remington, Marlin Savage and Bush Master. I have been involved with many of the prototypes and set ups for the manufacturing of these firearm parts.
In 2006, I started turkey hunting. I purchased a 870 3" mag, after many, many shells and chokes, but was not satisfied with the tolerance of the name brand chokes. I started shimming chokes for a better gun fit. This helped a little. My friends would bring there guns for me to shim their chokes, and they were satisfied, but I was not! The best choke combo I could find was on an average of 35 to 40 pellets with 3 to 4 pellets in the kill zone at 40 yards in a 8.5 x 11 turkey target. I was disappointed. I thought everyone else had much better than me, but I was wrong. They had no choice just like me. In 2007, I decided to purchased a better gun. I purchased a Remington 1187 3" mag but found myself still disappointed.
That's when I went to work. Coming from a family of gunsmiths I had been taught the longer the shot cup stayed with the shot the better. "Wrong!"
I have a gun range at my home. After looking at several wad cups and shot cups, of all manners, I noticed many irregularities in them. Common sense told me this was wrong.
That is when I began working on developing what ended out being JEBs Game Masters Precision Choke Tube, Jeb's Head Hunter. After 39 months of research I began with the theory that the shot staying with the wad cup was wrong. So thinking outside the box, so to speak, I designed the Jeb's Head Hunter to stack the shot in front of the wad cup inside the choke tube and exit before the wad cup. This eliminated the wad cup deflection and the flyers. My theory made one of the most advanced Recoil Reduction systems available by staging the shot inside the choke tube instead of pushing the whole pay load of shot and wad through the choke all at once.
