What kind of a setup do you have, mb?


Remington 870-sps-t super mag - Rhino.660 - Nitro 4 x 5 x 7 Hevishot

Some people dont like spending that much money for a shell and choke combo but they do perform as advertised.

That's not a bad way of looking at it. Heck, this will be going on 3 seasons I've had the same $12 box of shells........ \:D I'm being extra economical I guess..

I did not take the time to count them. It looked like plenty to me.

I always shot 3.5, until last season. I assumed that the 3.5 where better. When I patterned my gun no shell has out performed a 3 inch number 4. I have yet to buy any high dollar extended range stuff, cant afford them.

A 3.5" doesn't give yoy anymore distance but it does give you more pellets.

Bottom line shoot which ever length, shot size, or mfg of ammo that patterns best, and leave it at that.


Good point CH. In fact 3" shells are moving faster because they are pushing less shot with the same charge. I shoot 3.5" in my 10 gauge.

I have read faster is not always better. High Vol shells will have a tendancy to spread out more downrange because of the faster deployment.

Don't know, but I am going to try another shell/choke combo with regular speed shells to see if there is a noticeable difference.

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.
