RECOMMENDATION TABLES

We have recommendations for a wide variety of guns.  All guns pattern differently and each likes its own shot size.  Give it a chance with proper patterning, and your gun will speak for itself!  Each gun type shows load and choke combinations that are recommended for optimum performance.  Our recommendations are based on what we have found that patterns best out of most guns, so this is just a starting point for your own pattern testing.  Each gun can have a slightly different bore diameter as well as different harmonics (vibrations) within the barrel, so testing on each gun is critical.  All turkey loads show pellet counts In a 10" circle at 40 yards.


For best patterns, we DO NOT recommend having your forcing cone lengthened!!
