How many of you just stick with 3 in loads instead of the 3.5. Also has it limited you any?

The 3.5 shells are more than I want to shoot. They may shoot farther than the 3 inch but I shoot a better more consistent pattern with the 3 inch shells. I tend to shoot low with the 3.5 I think because Im expecting the recoil and lean into the gun shooting low.

My gun has a 3 inch chamber so I shoot 3 inch win supreme high velocity #5 or 6 shot. Normally keep to 25 yards or less but I killed a couple at 35 and one on the move at 45 this fall so they do a great job killing birds.

I know several guys that shoot 3 inch in a super mag. I don't. If they come out with a 4 inch I want one of them!
