What load and choke are you shooting.

Anyone shot a few loads out of a strut stopper? That is what is currently on my gun and patterns horrible with wiinchester supreme copper plated number 5's.

I've got one.

I've got the factory 26" barrel and a Hunter Specialties Undertaker 0.665" choke. Last year I shot the regular 3" Winchester Supreme with #6 shot and it done good up to about 35 yards. The pattern wasn't so good any further than that. I'm trying #5's this year to see if that helps.

i shoot an 870 super. I found IN MINE i shoot 4's the best out of a gobbling thunder choke.

the true glow ported choke patterns pretty well out of it too.

IN MINE federal shells are the worst and Winchester are the best followed by Remington 2nd.

I have the Remington 870 specialty turkey gun and I use the factory choke with #5 copper plated Remington shells in 3 1/2. It does well.

I shoot 870 super mag, 23 inch barrel. 665 mad max choke. My best pattern is a winchester 3 inch number 4 hv. My gun does not shoot number 5's well. All 3.5 that have shot have yet to out perform 3inch shells. I have not shot the high dollar shells , cant afford them.
