  1. I'm about to begin the testing process for 2011. I've got a new 870 SM with a Blurris Fast Fire waiting for some range time, as is the SBE II with some sort of optics, maybe a Bushnell Red Dot, maybe a Fast Fire. I want to get the SBE II back in action with the Win XR, which I believe is a better load than the H-13, even though I shoot H-13 currently. I am just not sold on a 1090 fps load, and I miss the consistant hammering the Win XR handed out! I'm looking for these types of patterns from all of my guns:
  2. Stainless Steel Pellets will just roll out of the barrel with the old IC choke
  3. Yes, they do http://hunting.flambeauoutdoors.com/otdrs_hunting/turkey_hunting/choke_tubes.asp But I think you would be fine with any of the following in .660/.665: Primos Jellyhead .660 Indian Creek (order from Midwest Turkey Call and get the new SS version) in .665 Kick's GT in .665 Pure Gold in .670 (many like this choke) I like a more open choke with #4's.....
  4. It's a $.50 pad at best. Hard as a rock. Real shame Benelli won't put a better pad on that non-CT stock. Maybe my CT stuff will fail someday. Maybe if I hunted as hard as you, my stuff would fail
  5. This subject has been going round and round for years. The real issue is that Benelli bores are all over the bored. Get it?, bored You don't really know what you have unless it's mic'ed. You might have a .718 that is finicky. You might have a .723 that is easy to work with. I have found that SBE's need a little field work to find out what works best. What kills one bird, might not work for the rest. If you are a weekend warrior, and might only get out a few times, then the factory full or some cheapy choke like the Undertaker might work. But if you seriously pursue them, these cheap options might let you down some day. There are three aftermarket chokes that seem to be pretty well accepted in the turkey community for the SBE II: Primos Jellyhead .660 Rhino .660 Indian Creek .660+- All of these with any decent new wave #6's or #7's, should work fine. H-13 seems to big pretty popular, and I've shot around $1000 worth of it, but it's slow at 1090 fps, and not perfect in my opinion. I will probably keep shooting it for now, but I still think the Winchester Xtended Range shells at 1225 fps are a good option. All of these things can be bought at places like: www.cabelas.com www.bassproshops.com www.mackspw.com www.midsouthshooterssupply.com www.midwayusa.com This place is great, but there is much more turkey info at www.oldgobbler.com Good luck!
  6. Hello butt pad made by Firestone!!
  7. Yes, but it's my blind partner's dog. The last day was rainy & windy, but there were just enough birds left to have a nice closer....
  8. Like getting the last toothpaste out of the tube, the weekend held up, which is not normal for me
  9. I laffed when I first saw them too. I don't laff anymore. Picking up 4 or 8 more tomorrow from SW My best speck year since 1998...
  10. Better late than never Blind partner flipped when I 'called' the can shot!
  11. Remington fixed the glitch quick and the Versa-Max has been in shops for weeks. Looks like Benelli makes it for them. I think we had better like the Vinci series, word has it that it's the replacement for the SBE series. But, I also have heard about an SBE III, so who really knows what the future holds
  12. What he said! I take the pin into the harware store, and search the little drawers full of special parts. I think it's a special o-ring though, reinforced maybe?
  13. I'm guessing this will do it for us this season. The last weekend is usually slow, and we just pick-up decoys, and hang out a bit. Good time to look at new clubs, just drive around, clean up the trailer, etc. But this hunt should hold me for awhile, probably into next season
  14. Early rumors are that the SBE II series may be on it's way out Some claim replaced by the Super Vinci, some say replaced by an SBE III I guess time will tell....
  15. Tons of birds in our area, I mean tons, but they are just potted up, happy as clams, not flying much. For me, this is about the time everything winds down anyway. It's duck season on the calendar, but these birds are tired of being chased, and will sit with live birds 23 hours a day now. They can be shy of everything. I'll still hunt hard through the close, but I've had a good season, and the blood-lust is starting to fade for me..... Wish this guy had more of a bald pate: Shot the shoveler so I could head to work:
  16. AB962 never applied to shotgun ammuntion, and, it was overturned yesterday mudhen, AB962 would dis-allow ALL mail order/online/phone ammunition purchases. ALL ammo transactions were required to be face to face transactions. As for rifle & shotgun ammo, you just didn't have to sign your name and leave a fingerprint. Incorrect, moot for now, but still incorrect Now, some ammo selling companies stated that they would voluntarily stop shipping ALL ammo to Cali in protest of AB962, but that was/is their personal decision. Sure, .410 could be an issue, but .410 pistols are not legal in Cali, and I know of no legal 28/20/12/10 gauge pistols in Cali, so it can be presumed that shotgun ammo would have been fine to order on-line/catalog even in AB 962 had passed. The bill would provide, subject to exceptions, that commencing February 1, 2011, the delivery or transfer of ownership of handgun ammunition may only occur in a face-to-face transaction, with the deliverer or transferor being provided bona fide evidence of identity of the purchaser or other transferee. A violation of these provisions would be a misdemeanor.
  17. Coupla things; AB962 never applied to shotgun ammuntion, and, it was overturned yesterday As for cheap ammo, shoot what you like, I just shoot what works best for me, and HM has been working just fine for me. I don't hunt ducks to save money, I can buy cheap meat at the store. I hunt with the best stuff I can afford, because the best stuff usually works the best
  18. What he said Hevi-Metal + Mod or LM or IC, all depends on the size pellets you want to shoot. I'd go with HM #3's or #2's & LM for the most part....
  19. Nice pics everyone! It's still going here:
  20. Nice Tucker! I had cans buzz the rice Sunday, but not in range. From now until the end of the season is usually when we see them, so I can only hope for one before then. Today was a sprig show. Hundreds, maybe thousands, flying around. Could have filled a dump truck with sprig and shovelers. I hate myself for even shooting two shovelers....
  21. Yes, they are clearly an endangered species, in need of reduced bag limits
  22. A troll is a troll, period Look at the posting history of this troll. I stand by my reply. Maybe the person was bridge-less for those 5 missing years
