    Has anyone had point of impact issues with longbeard xr? I have a .655 terror that shot good with the old supremes in my SBE but longbeards shoot high and right in my SBE & my M1. My Browning Gold with a Indian Creek. 670 shoots high too. I am trying to get my M1 set up as its lighter and shorter, but all the loads that I used to shoot have been discontinued. It's been 6 or 7 years since I have turkey hunted.

    Yesterday I tried a truglo SSX and the first shot was a little high and the second was dead on but the choke was tighter coming out of the gun than it was going in so I'm afraid to shoot it again. The terror patterned great but poi is a issue and I don't want rifle sights.

    Longbeard and Magnum Blend both shoot low in my A5/Indian Creek combo (1 foot at 40 yards). Regular old Remington Nitro 5s shoot dead on.
