    Turkey Loads?

    Well, I finally went to the range today and took two 3” loads with me. Remember my set up: 870 21” Remchoke X-Full choke. Ammo was Win Supreme HV Turkey Loads, 1.75 oz. 5 shot ($16.49). AND Rem Nitro Turkey 1 7/8oz. 5 shot ($6.99). Results at 40 yards? Winchester scored 30 hits inside that 10” circle with 5 hits in the brain/cervical area. Remington scored 60 hits in that 10” circle with 9 brain/cervical area hits. All in all kind of disappointing. Maybe I should move on to Hevi 13 and JellyHead chokes. What say you?
  5. I sighted in my 870 Express turkey gun the other day ( red dot scope) with 3" Federal turkey loads. Lord, did that gun kick my head off! I have been shooting my entire adult life (63 years) and have never experienced anything like that. Upon examination the recoil pad that was on the gun was about as soft as a hockey puck. Is there a pre-fit pad that I can change out and use? What say you? Thanks...
  6. I am looking for a ground blind for deer and turkey, both archery and firearms. I will be woods hunting here in Missouri and would like a blind big enough for two folks. I am a large specimen (6'5", 300lbs.) and because of physical limitations I will need sit for long periods. What say you? Thanks... p.s. Which chair do you use?

At that point I will contact you to work out the details such as S&H; THEN I will indicate that the item is SOLD.
