Just got my Stevens single shot 16ga out
, ready for Turkey Season.
After I get my first bird I'll switch guns to my White Thunder, love that gun.
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
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.
