Default Do You Think This Would Kill One

I shot my Moss 835 this last weekend. Thought I would show you guys the pattern.



Here's the backside.

Target says 40 yards. Is that a 30" circle? 70% of shot in it? Full Choke then I'd guess. Big turkey head maybe.

I've done a lot of research with turkey guns and I have a hard time believing that was shot at 40 yards id have to see it to believe it

That's what my buddy and his son were saying that saw it.

That gun will shoot with the best of them.

And that was exactly 120 feet from tip of choke to target.

Star Dot .676 choke and the great lot# 300325 of Hevi-13 3.5" 2.25oz #7 shot

That pattern has been repeated with that same load.

I suggest you go to www.oldgobbler.com and do some reading about these shells and the Star Dot choke. Those chokes have been bringing high dollar on ebay.

Well heck, that sure is some tight pattern that I'd concede goes beyond "Super Full"/"Turkey". I would, however, point out that the fact that your center of POI is indeed low and right (albeit only a coupla inches and that is very good rifle shooting with a shotgun), demonstrates why you WANT Turkey choke -- you need a little larger pattern at that range, IMO, and not try to overcome the features and benefit that shotguns offer. If you were shooting at a 60 yard target that'd be different, but then I wouldn't be relying on #7 shot even in/maybe especially in, that shell!
