Left is the Hevi Shot MagBlend 3 1/2
Right is the Winchester Xtende Range 3 1/2 #5shot



I have been shooting the Xtended Range the past couple years with good results.
Needed some shells so decided to try out the MagBlend.

Think I like it.

I have adjusted my sights a bit to the right so time to shoot a couple more and see where its hitting. Gonna try it at 40 yards as well just to know what the pattern is there.

Dang shells get expensive when shooting paper.


Oh this is out of a Rem 870.

Been thinking about a Bsquare mount and scope of some sort.

What are ya'lls opinion? scope or no scope? reg scope or red dot?

I would go with the Hevi. As far as scope or no scope question, I would definitely get one. I use a Leupold 1.5-4x20 on a saddle mount and love it.

X2. Both targets look good but I'm quite sure these aren't 40 yard targets.

I use a B Square with a turkey scope but I recently aquired a Leupold 2-7 Turkey plex NWTF Edition I am swapping to. I love a scope on a turkey gun.

I shot 3.5 inch XR 5's for several years but when I shot a longbeard at 42 yards and he ran off I switched to Hevi straight 6's. It's a Ford/Chevy thing I guess.
