Remington 870 12 gauge top, Rem 870 Youth 20 gauge bottom, both topped with Red Dots, full turkey chokes with Winchester LongBeard XR turkey loads, very tight patterns.

I thought my smokeless muzzleloaders were hard kickers until I shot that turkey load out of the 870 12 gauge, it will wake you up:bang:

12 Gauge Mossberg 835 Ulti Mag. 20'' inch barrel. .675 Indian Creek choke tube. Winchester Longbeard XR 3.5'' #4 shot. Vortex Sparc II red dot scope. Patterns good out to 50 yds. After the 1st gobbler is down I usually go out with archery gear. Our season starts this coming Thursday, April 18th. Can't wait.

I have two 870's both with select chokes. I find both shot high at 40 yards. I scope one and I can get it to shot lower. However, I don't like scopes on shot guns to bulky for me. So I go with my single 16ga or muzzleloader 12ga. 16ga has better patterns at 40 yards.

Really are some cannons pictured here. I don't use a 12g anymore.To bulky and hard kicking. I now use a 20g TC encore and shoot TSS. Killed two very nice birds this past Spring and passed on a couple Jakes.

Used to use the Auto-10 3 1/2 loaded with duck loads of "5's, worked great as long as I kept the birds out at 30 yards ;)

Hunting with others, Browning 10 ga. pump with 2.5 oz #5s. Hunting alone, either my 12 ga. TC New Englander with 1.5 oz buffered #5s or my 20 ga. flintlock Smooth rifle (cylinder bore) with 1.25 oz. mixed 7.5, 6, 4 shot. The Flintlock is limited to 22 yards; the TC with an extra full choke tube will kill as far as the Browning 10 ga.
