i have a rem super mag 870
i shoot 3 1/2 inch #6, and it will pepper the target at 30 yds.
i am going to try #5 this year and see how that does.
go to the range and shoot different loads, at different distances, and see how you gun performs.

My 870 with a Kicks .660 didn't like the mixed bags....It did enjoy the Win HV #5's but the turkeys didn't.

Last season I bagged a hen at 45 yards with an 870 using 3 inch number 2 shot. I wouldn't recommend shooting that far. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
