So I got myself a Mossberg 835 Ulti-Mag Turkey this year and I am about to start shooting. Any recommendations on a load? I am hoping to use this for more than turkey, but turkey is where my focus is right now. Got it in mossy oak break up too. Thanks for any advice, I am getting good at calling right now

What are you looking to invest in ammo? You want to go with lead or one of the High Density shot flavors? Do you have a turkey choke for it yet?

I have an extra Primos TightWad .690 if your interested.... PM me for details.

Before you spend a lot of money on a new choke, test your gun out with the factory turkey choke. I used mine for years with the factory choke and finally bought a jelly head. I compared the factory with the jelly head and had very little difference in patterns out to forty yards (my personal limit) with the Winchesster 3.5 inch #5 loads.

Up until last year I used the choke that came with it and Winchester Supreme #5's. I changed to the Primos Jellyhead and Hevi Shot Mag Blends. A lot more pellets in the kill zone and could kill one at 60 yards if needed but have no plans to as I like them around 25-30. Killed one with original set-up at a little over 50 because I misjudged the distance but had to put a 2nd shot on him.

I have the factory choke that came with it and I want to test it out, but I am open to other chokes. I think I will try out the Winchester Supreme #5's they seem to be really popular and highly recommended.

they are cheap and have killed most of my birds (some were #6) including 3 hens in one shot. They get the job done good.

Jellyhead and Nitro 3". The shells are pricey but worth it in my opinion.

If it came with a factory choke, I would say it is atleast worth to give it a try before buying other stuff. Winchester Extended Range and Hevi-shot are my two favorite shells, both expensive. I would stay away from the cheap Winchester Supremes, they will get it done but you can spend a little bit more money and get the flite controlled wad Federals. Those shoot really well for mid-price range shells.
