I finally purchased a IC choke and a couple boxes of the new Hevi shot MB for my M2 26". set target at 40 yrds.First shot went left 2-3 inches. OK maybe I pulled it.Set up again same results,same results for the first box. So went back to the house to get a box of Hevi 13's 5 shot which I've used for a few years.first shot dead on.

So u guys with more experence then me..what gives ?

It is not unusual for two different shells to shoot to a different POI. That is why it is so important to pattern the shell that you intend to hunt with. It may very well mean that the sights will have to be adjusted...Mike

In my BPS, H-13 #6's shoots pretty much dead on. H-13 #7's shoot just a tad left and a tad high, no big deal, I just move the POA a bit. H-13 MB shoots fine horzontally, but 12"-18" lower than the #6's or #7's. All from the same gun, same IC choke, same rest :confused:

 

Yes, it is very common, very common, for different shells to shoot differently with the same gun and choke set-up. No big deal for wingshooters usually, but it can be an issue with these new fancy turkey chokes and loads....

Thanks for everyone's input.I think I'm going to use the H13 #5 which is dead on.I guess I will play with the MB after the season is over.From what i'm reading and hearing the MB takes alittle work to get it right.

 

Thanks again.

H-13 #5 is a great load - probably under-rated with all the new salt shot coming out. It can be an absolute crusher :)

Switch to archery! It is far more fun than using a shotgun! Plus you need to be good enough to get them inside 20 yards; 10 yards is best.:)

 

This is why I only hunt with a spear. Its a bit hard to get your daily dove limit but turkeys, no problem.:cool:
