I'm taking my youngest brother out Sunday morning. The only shot gun I have for him to use though is a mossberg 835 with a primos Jelly head .690 choke. I think a three inch shell may be too much kick for him. he has a small frame. Do any of you know what size 2 3/4" shot I should have him get and have any of you seen people be successful with that size? I was thinking some 6's but I'm not sure. I think he should be able to kill a bird out to 25 or 30 yards with this set up.... hopefully.

4's, 5's, or 6's and you will be just fine. They all kill efficiently. He will easily get 30 yards out of that.

sounds like a great time. any of the buffered turkey 2 3/4" loads will be fine. When my wife goes with me she shoots a single shot 20 gauge 3" full choke barrel. snaged a couple birds with it. I would think a 2 3/4" 12 gauge loadwould be equal or better than.

Load it with 3" shells but let him shoot it beforehand with 2 3/4" and don't tell him any different. He won't feel a thing when he shoots the bird. My nephew killed his first last year at 8 and my brother had him do it this way and he never knew the difference.

This is what i'd do, I did that last yr during deer season with my buddies 13 yr little boy, he harvested his first buck using my 7mag and never knew the gun went off.
