Re: 10 gauge
Are you using this 10 gauge for turkeys? If so why not try #6shot.. especially if you can find it in heavyshot. Still carries the same knockdown power as #4shot but the pellet count is much higher. Alot of guys i now use #7shot in the heavyweight.. but I dont care for it. The heavyshot will hurt your wallet a bit, but I have found it to shoot extremely well no matter what what kind of choke/barrel combo you use. IF you dont want to spend the money on the heavyweight...
TRY THE FEDERAL FLIGHT CONTROL #4's... I love these things, I have a H&R 10 gauge and I have seen many different types of groups.. but if you want TIGHT groups try the flight control... I have had my wad stick in the paper at 40 yards! It leaves a tangerine size hole in turkeys and paper a like...Alot of people will say the pattern is TOOOO tight, but I have a red dot scope on my shotgun and I like to know whatever I aim at.. is going to die...
"...I shoot big cartridges, not because I am ego bound, not because they are needed to kill big game when well placed shots are made, but when an error is made, they will get you out of trouble more often then a lesser round."
