thanks! i knew you guys would know, im hoping i can get a good year in , especially since the last 3 years always has something trajic happen, and im not coaching baseball this year, so i will have plenty of time
I use a Rem 870 3.5 inch with Winchester num 5's. Gun came with Rem Turkey choke. I bought a KICK'S choke and it patterns much better than the Rem choke at 35 yards. Dad and Bro in Law use JELLYHEAD'S and they work well also.
My brother has a Stoeger Auto and he rolled a gobbler two years ago with turkey choke that came with gun. Saying that I would still test gun close ..20 yards to make sure it shots where it points, then going out to 40 to test pattern density there. It is hard to imagine a shotgun with turkey choke not having a decent pattern at 30 yards. 40 yards really tells you whether you need to try another choke. If you do get a new choke, try Indian Creek, they are awesome. Just my two cents!
If you want a bad combination, get you a primos jellyjead choke and some Hevi13 shells or Nitros. If you wanna keep the factory choke, try some Federal flight control. I'm not sure your factory choke will handle the heavier that lead shot. Also, Shoot a big piece of cardboard or some contractors paper so you can see your whole pattern at 40 yards. Also, I'd go with #6's.
