I did good patterning the 870 Remington yesterday..The top performance shell was the 3 1/2 inch magnum #4 shot Remington Nitroes.I patterned her at 30 yds.
Yes turkey hunting for you is just around the corner.. We still have until the end of April for our season to open up. I thought about taking my Remington 1100 Mag but decided I will use the same shotgun I used last year again.. It is a single shot Ithica with a 3 foot barrel and I have never pattern that shotgun before. You can rest asured though it kills on both ends.. LOL When I was a youngster I used to goose hunt with it. Once I tried them I never hunted them again. Except to give one to an uncle.Then I retired it until last year and the results were the same. I just use the 3inch Super-X loads in #6 shot. That still packs a wallup and lays the turkeys down. 2 shots and 2 birds last year though one was a bearded Jake during the last few days of the hunt.
