Pattern? In the 70s I used a 36 grain 5mm lead bullet, right between the ear lobe and the eyeball:



Uh....in 2017 I prolly use #9 TSS out of my 10 gauge.

Looking at your picture, those are the largest antlers I've ever seen on a turkey.

I believe those are Hevi-Shot Magnum Blends. They do an mix of 5,6,7 or 4,5,7 shot in the load. They are some high dollar loads but the hope is that you only shoot one or two per season. I patterned some last year but my shotgun/choke combination at 40 yards performed better with Winchester Long Beard XR in size 5 or size 6.

Gear:
12 gauge Benelli SuperVinci
Carlson Super Full choke - .665
Burris FastFireIII red dot sight 8 MOA

I've only shot the two different loads as marked on the targets.
1) 3" Hevi Magnum Blend 5,6,7.
2) 3" Long Beard XR #6's

Both will do the job, but the magnum blend with my set up put a few more pellets in the kill zone @ 30 & 40 yards and in a 10" circle @ 40 yards. (more pellets per load).

Magnum Blend packs a lot more punch to the shoulder and is more expensive.

Any suggestions?
I heard all the Wyoming turkeys were blown into Nebraska with the high winds this last winter. FYI

Solid Intel here. I've heard the same. I've also heard that they have started following the ducks and geese on their migrations.

I think you got it dialed in! That's a nice pattern, I don't care who you are.

What's all this talk about 40yd. patterns !? I shot mine last fall at 5 yards with Winchester long Beard XR out of my over/under Citori...never found a single pellet in the meat.

I think you just need to get closer.
