rhino / nitro combo,,,, 325 + hits in 10 circle at 40 yards
70+ kill hits

strut stopper extreme/ hevi 13 combo,,, 180-190 hits 10 inch circle at 40 yards 30+ kill hits

jelly head/hevi13 combo,,,, 150-160 hits 10 incjh circle 40 yards 15-25 kill hits

xfactor choke win er, hevi 13, remington hevi shot sucked

factory turkey choke and various ammo combos sucked


i spent about 350 bucks with chokes and shells playing with my mossy 835 2 years ago up till this late last winter just before this past springs season, when i just bought a rhino choke and nitro shells like i should have in the 1st place.....

Im in the 360 range with a .660 Rhino and Nitro 4x5x7 hevi shot in my 870 super mag. Like a few others here, Ive spent a small fortune in loads and choke combos and this is by far the deadliest Ive ever shot!

I sold my friend a factory Remington Super full choke after patterning his gun (Rem 870) at the range with it. It had an excellant pattarn at 50 yards with Winchester #6 Sup. Elite loads.

I never pattern my gun at 40 yards, I shoot at 25 yards which is where a turkey has to be before I lay him down. Tight patterns at 40 can be wayyyyy too tight for 25 and closer. What is more concerning is the 10 yard shot with a 50 yard pattern.

I don't think they can be too tight at any range, assuming of course, that there is at least some spread from the muzzle diameter. If you put it on his neck or head, you should kill him dead as a hammer, and no matter if you mangle the head or neck. Much better than too open a pattern which puts shot into the body, which for those of us who like turkey breasts without lead is a no-no.

I shoot a fairly open pattern and rarely have a shot in the breast. However, shooting softballs at 15 yards at an object which never sits still is a recipe for failure.

Wonder why some of the best turkey hunters in the country swear by a modified choke...

I wonder how many would shoot ML or rifles if they were legal?

If I knew that every one that I encountered would be killed at 10 or 15 yards, then modified would be the way to go, because at those ranges the pattern hasn't opened enough to become a " bird" pattern. I'm with you on the distances. My longest has been at 35 yards, and most have been between 25 and 30. And, even with a .665 choke and at 25 yards or so, every now and then a flier will hit the upper breast. I have ordered a .680 choke because I wanted a flush mounted one to shorten the barrel and that's the tightest that I could find in a flush mount.

I shot this one at about 10 yards and could fit a tennis ball through his neck, so you can go overboard on tight chokes, however there's always those few that hang up at 40-50 yards.
