If I shot those targets @20 yards with my loads I shoot their would be a baseball size hole in it.

Post it. Post pattern tests of multiple loads. It's easier to put people down than it is to actually go out and do the work and hope that you help just one person. I can make baseball sized holes in paper too but that doesn't help anyone here.

Tyson I shoot one shell and those are Nitros. Patterned my gun 5 years ago and only shoot it at turkeys. No need to throw 10 bucks a shell out the window when you know what your gun and pattern does. But I will tell you at 20 yards it's baseball size with a few flyers.

This is what happens when they come to close like 20 yards

I will have to take your word on this one, because that is one load I will not be pattern testing for this forum. Wish you had the paper targets to post. Oh well. Good Luck this fall if you have a fall shotgun season otherwise best of luck next

Spring.

Hey tyson, thought you might like to see this pic of mine, 3" 2 oz federal FC #5 .665 non ported choke 35 yards :

Nice pattern Trapshooter1. Was that out of your new Benelli? Thanks for the pic. I will have to get out there and do a few more pattern tests when I get a chance, baiting bear has been a lot more work than I had planned for.

This is what one of my better turkey gun throws at 35 yards:

Best Benelli combo for me is H-13, Jellyhead, it patterns something like this at 40 yards most of the time:

I'm still looking for the perfect combo....

Thanks for the pics. What ammo are you using?

i was even suprised hearing about 6's being used for turkey! learn something everyday i guesss

 

Oh lordy, H-13 #6's with the right choke combination can be deadly, just deadly....

 

Same for Federal HW #7's....

 

If you guys really want good turkey load info, spend some time on the NWTF board & the Old Gobbler boards :)
