Pure Gold Choke/New Hevi-Magnum Load - 12ga
« on: February 25, 2010, 06:03:26 PM »
Working on different chokes and loads last couple of years; 3" Stoeger M2000 12ga. This is my son's. I have ended up with
Pure Gold .670 choke with the new Hevi-Magnum load (new this year) with 4X5X7 hevi-shot. At 50 yards it tore the target up. There was a 20 inch circle of shot centered on the turkey's waddle. The 20 inch circle had a very dense pattern. I will try and take picture of next test run and post.

do you really need that much power to get that turk, most of my spring toms are anywhere from 10-30 yards and I use an extra full turkey choke and 6's maybe magnum or regular...I like the copper coated just for those harder pellets to get him in the noggin.... @--0--0101 this year
