what size shot is that? pretty nice pattern. would you shoot at a real bird that far out?

3.5 inch 5's and yes I would if I had to.  It would have to be in a field and not in some serious brush.
I have killed several longbeards from 45 to 55 yards because they would come in there and hang up on the edge of a green field.

that's a pretty tight pattern at 50 yds.   Looks like that pattern would obliterate a turkey's head at shorter ranges.  Make sure you shoot it at shorter distances so you can get an idea of how large the shot group would be.  Let us know.

It's about the size of a coke can at twenty... looks like a big slug hole when it goes through paper... did you see that turkeys head from this year.... it was at forty and I neary took it off  ;D
