congrads on the turkey          75 yards seem to be a long way to be shooting at turkeys   ##$%#1119   
turkey season was a wet one now on to deer hunting in October

Awesome, I know a guy uses those shells, killed one at 84 yards once

Your right, sometimes they just won't come in

Congrats on a great bird

Thanks ! Some will say that's not turkey hunting....and that's OK. I myself feel that using a rifle on them is not ''hunting'' them ,but it is legal in some states. I don't recommend taking a shot that far unless you have a set-up that will do the job. Which I do. I use a scope on my gun also which is a must for that kind of accuracy.  I actually stepped it off at 80 yds, but my steps may have been long so I adjusted down a little.   ;D

have you pattered the gun at the yardage like on a nine inch paper plate   wondering how many pellets in it at that yards that you are getting.      my at 30 yards is 177 pellets in a nine inch paper plate

CLARIFICATION !
I was mistaken on the yardage.My steps ended up being short of a yard. I stepped off 80 and measured it and it turned out to be about 63yds. I guess my legs are getting shorter  ##$%#13

I patterned it at 20 yds with regular shot to get my scope close,moved out to 50 yds and zeroed best i could with winchester supreme #6s .after several of those I had the scope set and then I put 1 of the $9 Nitros through it and had 18 pellets in the head and neck of my target.That's a dead bird so I went with that.I don't waste shells on round plates,a turkeys neck is not very wide and thats's where you want to hit it. I used a big piece of card board so I could tell where the most shot hit and adjusted the scope to get maximum point of impact.
