both will work especially if your shots are 30 yards or less.I shoot the 3.5 so that you have some extra pellets flying at the turkey.i figure the more pellets the better.3" lead never patterned anywhere close to the 3.5 in my guns.The 3" nitro seems to shoot about as good as the 3.5 nitro though.


It doesn't matter how far, you get no more distance from a 3.5" then you get from a 3" shell. Max powder is max powder, you just get more pellets which can cause pattern deformation and not pattern as well.

I do shoot 3.5" shells, but they shoot better out of my gun.

Captain you have not shot my gun so how do you know which shell i get further distance with?i have a much higher pellet count with 3.5 than 3" at 40 yards and beyond with lead so yes that increase my effective range with 3.5 the nitro puts plenty of pellets at 40 with both 3 and 3.5

wow this one was a good debate after all. I posted it because it seems like alot of false information out there about what 3.5's actually do.

I do current hunt with 3.5's but the 3" actually pattern the same as the 3.5 i am just a sucker and pay the extra money for the .5 i guess lol

i understand it is all in the gun/shell/choke but just wanted opinions i guess.

I am about to buy either a Moss 935 or a Stoeger 2000, however the Stoeger doesnt shoot 3.5's but the Moss uses a gas action so kinda stuck in which i really want. 3.5's dont really matter to me that much and i dont really care about the resale as i have no goal to ever sell it.
