Yeah, I get that. At 10 feet I would expect around 3 inches of spread with no choke. It's about what my 870 and 500 print at that kind of distance. I tested a few loads for pattern not too long ago but I did a lot of that at 10 yards instead of 10 feet.
I was looking at the size of the individual pellet holes. If you go back and look at the picture of the silhouette I posted, the pattern of fine shot in the belly was from Winchester #4 shot 3" turkey magnum load at 10 yds. The pattern is about 10 inches but the pellets are a smaller diameter for sure.
