turkey gun question
« on: January 30, 2018, 09:48:26 AM »
I have a 835 with a turkey barrel shoots great but use it for deer season because I have a deer barrel also. so if I buy a new 835 and put the turkey barrel I have on it do you think it will still shoot the load that it likes or will I have to do more shooting of turkey loads.

Your turkey barrel should shoot the same, regardless of the receiver it's mounted on.  The barrel has the choke, so that determines the shot pattern.

Louie... Remember who we are talking too...   ##$%#113 ##$%#1119  ##$%#13 and the turkey goes!!!!!  @--0--0102

I do concur with your opinion though, receiver should make no difference.

I go along with the rest , it's the choke that makes it a Turkey gun . I have taken Turkey with all my shotguns (3) with Turkey chokes on them .  ##$%#1118

Yep, I concur with the crowd - you're good to go regardless of the receiver you hang it on.

If you keep the same barrel it should be ok, just verify your point of impact s the same with the different receiver.

If you go with a new barrel, you will need to pattern it all over again.

I agree with everyone but you should shoot it just to confirm the point of impact for your own confidence. Can't see why it would shoot any different.
