Hey Wes, what gun you doing the testing with? Would the Federal Flight-Control shells work better in a regular barrel compared to an overbored barrel? I have no clue, but it would seem the overbored would let it spread some or wobble. ?yes/no?

I'm using a Mossberg 935, purchased Spring 2008.
Was told they patterned better than a Benelli and kicked less than an 835. ;\)
Actually, main reason I picked this as a dedicated "turkey" gun was "quiet" carry (compared to the 835) and I couldn't find a gunsmith willing to mount a scope on my old turkey gun, i.e. I needed to go to optical sights due to my "old" eyes.

The Mossberg 835 and 935 use the same choke tubes, one is a pump, the other is a gas autoloader.

The Federal flight-control shells are not supposed to work well in ported chokes, i.e. most after-market "turkey" tubes. However, I had very uniform patterns with the Jellyhead ported turkey choke using these Federal shells. But the Mossberg "factory" turkey tube that came with the gun --- to my surprise ---- as good or better than the Jellyhead, no matter what I shot thru it.

I decided to hunt with the factory choke mainly because it was shorter and had no "shine". The Jellyhead tube was "shiny".

Yeah, I am a mossberg shooter too. I have 3 mossturds but none are "turkey" guns. I only hunt Ft Cambpell and LBL so I only need a bow, muzzleloader and turkey gun. I have the bow and muzzleloader setups I am happy with but not a "turkey" gun.

So with that said, I was looking at the mossturd 535 turkey(I have 2 835s just don't have short turkey barrels). The only diff from the 835 is the 535 is lighter, shorter mag tube, and NOT overbored. So this topic on the Federal Flight-Control shells had me wondering if they would work better/worse, the same in a regular 12 gage verses an overbored. I guess there is one way to find out. \:\) Buy the 535!!!
