I agree with MI_Bowhunter. Great gun but kicks like a mule! I love it though. I use the Undertaker choke and Remington Nitro #6 and take down birds at 35 yards with barely a flop! I would take it if I were you!

Hey Dave if you don't like the kick try some winchester Longbeard shells they are right!!! They will kill out to 50 yds I have seen it done and at25-40 they are devastating.

Just an additional point, I don't use the Remington Magnum loads, Used to but my shoulder begged me not to! The standard load does just fine. It still kicks but no where near that the magnum loads did. I think IMO that standard loads work great out to 40 yards but each gun needs tested on that. Hey Bluetoe-what Winchester loads specifically? 5's 6's THe kind you find at Wal Mart? I'm not inclined to change but at their prices I could play a little and who knows?

Bear I don't know if Walmart sells Longbeards or not but either #5's or 6's in 3in will work I use both through a Rhino choke in a Mossberg 695 bolt action.

I used the Undertaker choke in the past in my 11-87 with lead, #6, 3" shells.  It patterned pretty nicely.  When I switched to Hevi-shot 10 or more years ago I went back to the factory Full remchoke tube instead of the Undertaker, still preferred #6 to #5 loads.  Tried Longbeards, never got better than Hevi shot at 30-40 yards and the same full choke, so have stuck with Hevi shot for now.  Might go out one day & see how that Undertaker tube performs with Longbeard but for now sticking with the tried & true for that gun.
