40 yards is it for me. Until I get a shotgun that has a decent enough trigger, and find a choke/barrel/load combo to get the job done further, 40 is far as I will go. I don't blame folks who has the tools to get the job done at 50. 60 is getting out there even if you can pattern one. Unless one is a great shot, and has awesome trigger control.

My gun still patterns well out to 50 yards, but I dont think I'll ever take a shot past 40-45 yards.. I know that guys that use Nitro shells have no problem taking birds at 60 yards, but I dont have the money for those shells and Im not sure I'd take that risk anyway.

Mine patterns well to 45 yards, but I don't hunt fields. I usually hunt a creek bottom where 30 yards is about as far as I can shoot. Killed mine this year at 25 yards.

I can get a great pattern out to 50 yards and would feel comfortable shooting out to that distance. Although I could probably stretch that out a little more, 50 is the max for me.

Will your gun pattern very tight mine patterns like crap and how far will you shoot one?

45 yards is my max. Thats using 3 1/2" Win HV #5's. I'm using a 28" barrel with my Supermag, not sure what you are using.

EXACT Same shells, Gun just 26in barrel and does your gun have thumb hole stock? Mine does and I love the gun just don't hold good pattern out very far[>:]
