My gun and the others I have seen there is not much of a comparison between lead and hevi.
Federal mag-shok flitecontrol wad, I think that is the name of them, were the best leads I have ever used. I bet it is the same thing as the new "turkey thug" shells. Do not remeber the oz of shot, but know they were 3.5'' number 5s. I hear people talk of the winchester supreme or double x shells, and those have been the biggest piece of crap of turkey shells I have ever used, and will never buy them again unless I have too. I aint got a problem with anybody using them, but i myself, hate them.
Anyways, in my set-up, HTL shot probably has 20-30% more pellets in the target zone that lead. That is why I use them. They are awfully expensive, but it is just worth it to me to use the best there is, since turkey hunting is my favorite thing to do.

I stand corrected, I ranged it a few minutes ago in the rain. it was 32 yrds. Not trying to be deceptive guys, we move the target in the day before and forgot to reset it.I shoot Hevi too, but I do think its over priced. I thought the topic was Choke Tube & Ammo.
I hear alot of people on here trying to get set up to hunt and the cost. Just trying to be objective. \:\)

It is way over priced. No doubt about it. But when your talking about 4-5 shots a year i dont really matter to me.

I bought a Turkey Thug shotgun last year and killed my first turkey with it. \:\) This year I put a red dot scope on it and have tried various shells. The best one for the gun is the Turkey Thug ammo! Nice tight pattern going to be lethal. \:\)

I'm very positive the new turkey thug shells do not have the flitecontrol wad.

Probably without question since the bores are exactly identical in both the 835 and 935's, the best choke I have found in the 835 has been the old Star Dot .676 choke Shooting Hevi-13 2.25oz #7's I know of no other choke that will consistently beat it. I see no reason why it would'nt give similar results in a 935 barrel as well.
