View Full Version : Turkey season cometh !!!

Anybody patterned their shotguns yet? What loads and guns will you guys be using? I'm gonna hit the woods with my trusty Mossberg 500 and some 3" Activ nickle plated #4's (2.25oz worth- I still believe in payload over speed!)
Has anybody else started brushing up on their calling techniques? I hope I cleaned out my diaphragm calls after last season (yuck!) ....

I'll be using my Rem 870 Super Express Mag with a Patternmaster choke tube fitted. The load is Winchester Supreme 3.5" Copper-plated #6s. Tried the 4's and 5's, but the 6's do the trick. Twice as many pellets dead center (read 30 in the head) at 25 paces.

Remington 1100, 2 3/4" #6 Fed. Copper Plated. I have a Poly Choke which will be cranked to Extra Full. Works for me.
