I've always shot 2 3/4 Hevi #6s.
Going to try turkey hunting this year. Good info, I was thinking about using 3" #2. But I may pick up a box of "turkey loads "
I use Goldtip 55/75's with a 125 grain Thunderhead fixed blade tip.
rhino 660 870 super mag. hevi 13's 3" 2oz. #6's prolly a bit of over kill inside of 30yds.
rossi seen where u posted using win xx 3.5 6's, i have never shot a 3.5 in my 870 been thinking bout getting some win xx 6's in 3.5 and patterning them just for the hellva of it, to see how they pattern and am asking your thoughts on those xx win 6';s used to shoot that xx mag load in #2's when we could use lead for geese and was a absoulute goose killin load, any thoughts would be helpful, thanks
Birddog,dont be leaning up against a tree when you turn those 3.5s loose,that 870 might nail you to it.I dont like the recoil.Its not how many pellets you turn loose,its how many you can center in your pattern and put on target.I shoot 1 1/4 oz 5 hevis out of my 20 with all the killing going on down range.
nra u prolly right bout that, shot a guy's h & r 10ga one time and why, i don't know, but handed it back to him, once was enuf, matter of fact i have a browning bps 10ga, i goose hunt with, i wouldn't ever shoot that thing sitting against a tree so don't know why i even thought bout that 870 with a 3.5 turkey load, even thinking bout it now, makes me flinch
Federal # 4's
I keep some BB's w/ me in case I run into bigfoot...
my dad has cases of old lead waterfowl loads that i use for tukeys they are federal 3in 1 7/8th 6's, i shoot them out of my nova with a PM standard nasty at 25yds.
