    I get by far the best patterns with the federals.....I'm putting 110-120 #4s in a 10" circle at 40 yards

    Mine was #6 3in and I got about 40 to 50 in the head and neck at 35 yards then I shot some Winchester double x magnums #4 3in and I got about 90 to 100 in the head and neck at 35 but this year I can't find them anywhere

    I have a Mossberg Model 930 Camo Turkey Model. Great Gun! The best turkey load I have found is the Remington Nitro Turkey 12 Ga. 3" 1210 FPS. 4 Shot!
    I was amazed how tight a pattern it holds at 40 yards which is what I did all my testing out. The pattern was next to unbelievable! You might want to try them. They come in a 10 Round Box! Also would be excellent for heavy cover coyote hunting !!!
    Good luck this season to all you fellow Turkey Hunters! And long live the NWTF!
    :D
