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."

All Hail the Mighty 10 gauge! I have a highly customized Remington SP-10 with a 30" barrel that I use for turkey hunting. I hand load Tungsten Shot and this shotgun is an absolute killer out to 70 yards and beyond.

Re: 10 gauge

Here's some of my best work from last spring. Bought this 10ga BPS (my second in addition to a Mag 10) through gunbroker for $200 some time back. It's my favorite beater, spray painted camo and cut down barrel rethreaded for colonial true size chokes and I'm currently using a 0.739. Oh yeah, that's the result of one dose of Remington #6s at about 40 yards. Works for me!
