Nothing fancy but it works for me.

Dont see me ever trying a bow for spring gobbler... Hard enough with a SP turkey gun!!

My gun of choice will prob be my old 870 with a 26" barrel teamed up with a Rem Ventilator choke and Win 3" HV #5's... Good out to 45 yards...

I'm considering using a single shot H&R Topper 20 gauge. Not sure about loads yet.

I assume you mean in addition to several strings of curse words. I got a hold of some Rem. Wingmaster HD. I dropped a few long beards with Hevi-shot and can't complain. I can't wait to see how the HD compares.

Just so the message doesn't get lost in the bragging about this shot or that super-duper alloy, lead works great too.

I've spent a few $$ on heavier-than-lead shells and specialized chokes made for 'em, I'm bound to try and get my moneys worth from the investment. That said, I dropped my first two birds with Win. Supreme 2.75" #4 shot, 'cause that's all I could find at the store for turkey loads....you could not have made them any deader with any shell.

Joe, I also shoot the Rem. Hevi shot, the ones they don't make anymore. I still have a couple boxes of them in 3 1/2" 5 shot. The HD's actually pattern better in my gun than the hevi's, but I'm still going to use the hevi shot while I have them. They have worked great for me throughout the years. I will probably mix the HD's and the Hevi shot. I shoot an 870 12ga. SPS-T thumbhole with a Jellyhead choke. The HD's pattern better than any other load I have tried, including the Hevi 13's, which by the way pattern horrible in my gun, and the Win. Xtended.

SS what Hevi 13 shells have you tested ? The 1 5/8 are not a good shell. A great combo is the .665-.670 Pure Gold with the Hevi 13 #6 2 oz loads.

I'll be holding up my Benelli Nova 20ga with a .570 Pure Gold and 3 in, #6, 1 1/4 oz Hevi 13 loads with patterns like this at 40 yards why carry a heavy 12 gauge...
