Re: Is my pattern good enough?For turkey season

If you want to try the ultimate turkey load, give this site a look: Nitro Ammunition Company ~ Superior Shotgun Ammo They're pricey but in all the shooting i've done in the past years nothing has come close. I average 270 pellets in a 10" circle at 40 yds with 3.5's in 4x5lead x 7 hevi in a 1200fps and 2 5/8 oz. shot. I've read where the new Hevi 13 (2 1/4 oz. 3.5) is close to that, but also close in price. I have some in size 6 to try when the weather breaks. Also hope to try the Hevi 13 in size 7 this spring. I think I've gone as far as i can with this 835 anyway. Now i'm starting to work on a 870 in 20 ga this spring also. Am i nuts or what.

HighKnob, that's pretty awesome patterning, what choke tube you usin'? Another shell you might want to try is the Winchester Supreme Elite Xtended Range HD Turkey loads, they pattern awesome. I was getting about 48 pellets in a HEAD AND NECK target (printed on 8.5x11" paper) of a turkey, @ 40 yds. The load I'm using is only a 3" 1-3/4 oz. #5 load. They're a little pricey tho lol. But... I figure @ one turkey per shot isn't that bad .

The hulls are black tho, and the head is nickel . Just figured black might be a turn off LOL.

Here is a pattern from my 11-87 Super Mag 12 ga 3.5" magnum using a Pure Gold .670 choke and Hevi 13 Mag Blend.
Shot at 40 yds with a Red Dot scope. 198 hits in a 10" circle. Temp was 61 deg with a slight cross breeze.

I made a slight adjustment and will verify my target and post results.

I'm using a Lohman 680 i believe in my 835. It has the long straight section 2" after the choke section........extends about 1.5" past the end of the barrel. I have always used the winchester hi velocity 4's for my back up loads. Killed a nice gobbler in Tn this spring with one of those.
