Sleeper pattern from an old friend...


Recommended Posts

Just messing around with chokes and shells yesterday, and found a decent pattern hiding in the middle of all the 3.5" H-13 & Indian Creek chokes. My SBE II has been pushed aside by a BPS & 300+- at 40 yards for a couple of years now, but I think 240+- with 3" Magnum Blend + a $40 Jellyhead might just be good enough. Not a perfect pattern, but I can't see a tom surviving either pattern. What do you guys think?

 

Much nicer to shoot for sure, 3" are almost a joy compared to the 3.5". I can still print 60+- more pellets with the 3.5", but I'm starting to like the softer shots! And, they print pretty much centered to the POA:

As much as 15" vertical with different H-13 loads. Biggest gap was between H-13 and MB.
