That .640 choke seems tight...might be OVERchoking the load resulting in a less than optimal pattern.
x2. With your setup, I'd be looking for .660 constriction choke and then find the right shell (3" #5 or #6 for this constriction) and go to the range. Best of luck.

Just get the bird to come in at 25 yards or less.

And then just hunt with a .410. No need for anything bigger if you're that good all the time.

If you haven't made a final decision, I have an UnderTaker HTL .675 choke for a mossy 500 that I will send you. I shot it with 3" Hevi #7's with it a few years back out of a 500. PM me your address if you need it.

Clean your barrel really good too! Lots of solvent and scrubbing.

sure is a loose pattern, but I can't see how that wouldn't still kill a turkey at 40 yards 9 times out of 10.

He may not have your luck Catman.... ;\) I'd rate it more like 1 out of 10.....

Would keep it 30 yards and under with that pattern, 40 is way to iffy as set up.

Would you say this is a more suitable pattern? And thanks for the choke and shells Whiskey.

That does look better, but it's really hard to tell with those little turkey head targets.
