Default Remington 11-87?

I was looking into getting a new turkey gun. I was wondering what you guys thought of the remington 11-87 how does it pattern what choke are you using with it and what shells? thanks for any help and any opinions.

I use one as a backup, I threw a cheapo truglochoke in it with remington #5 3 inch loads and it patterns just fine

If a semi is what you want then we all know the Remington is a good shotgun, if you get a pump you will save yourself some "$$$$$"

I'm sure the 11-87 is a fine gun but I wouldn't count on someone elses choke/shell combination working since it's a different gun. Someone elses 11-87 might shoot lights out with a particular choke/shell combo but with a different gun it may shoot like he!!. Someone elses combo might be a good place to start but I wouldn't count on it being the best you could get. Simp

The Remington Sp-10 Magnum will give you better patterns than the 11-87 when using 2 1/4 oz. loads.

I think a 10ga. is the same as a 3.5" 12ga., I don't think there is really difference

Remington 11-87 is a very good shotgun, you are going to pay for the semi automatic action but as long as that isn't an issue you should really like it. Can't ever go wrong with a Remington shotgun

Either one.. I have the newest 11-87 super mag turkey gun with the sureshot stock and it shoots good.. With a JellyHead choke and Hevi Shot #6's I get 180 pellets in a ten inch circle at 40 yards...

870 good too but just a lot more recoil vs an auto, it is only one shot.. I bought this one so my wife could use it also.. She does good with it..
