Turkey Calls / Love this combo!
« Last post by bbcustomboxcalls on Today at 07:32:51 PM »
Nothing fancy about it, just another Bloodwood/Black Limba combo that really sings.

For a 1 5/8 oz load there sure is a lot of pellets missing in the 20” total. What did the outside of the 20 look like? I wouldn’t be mad at that pattern at at all if it was 224 in the 10” and 220+ in the 20” but the lack of numbers in the 20 makes me thing the gun might be overchoked or either it just doesn’t like that choke as far as the Apex goes. The Federal’s very well could be totally different....let us know!
I will try other chokes I guess but a 575 isn't exactly super tight for a 20 I mean I seem guys running tss out of 555 IC and 562 sumtoy I got my hands on a 573 hevishot choke so I will see if that cleans up the putter ring. Maybe the Carlson will like the federal tss better since it likes the federal HW


It's certainly turkey stomping just something to tinker with in the off season.

Anything is possible with apex I swore I was getting into hand loading this summer to avoid this but a great price lured me into the easy shells. The holes sure look like 9's but I doubt I can judge that well by eye.

I am not chasing 300's in fact I didn't want anything more the 250 in 10 but my 20 ring and beyond should be way better.

20 Gauge Turkey Guns / Re: 870 compact LOP question
« Last post by Spurs Up on Today at 07:22:36 PM »
If you are a male of near average or greater height and plan to wing shoot with the compact, you’ll wanna add spacers or perhaps replace it with a longer stock. However, if you’re gonna dedicate it to turkey hunting and—especially if you—mount a red dot or other parallax free scope, I suggest leaving it as is.  That way you’ll take full advantage of its compactness, ease of maneuverability, and light weight.

Patterned my new 20 gauge 1187 with my 1 5/8 9s handloads and I'm super happy. Dont see my self toting a heavy 12 gauge again. All patterns at 40 yards. Have a trulock 585 coming to try also.

Indian creek 562. 284 in 10 inch and 209 in 20 inch.

Indian creek 570. 321 in 10 inch and 191 in 20 inch.

Indian creek 555. 355 in 10 inch and 180 in 20 inch.

Rem. Superfull 572. 324 in 10 inch and 204 in 20 inch.

The superfull 572 is what I'll hunt with if the 585 doesn't work out but if itll do 300/230 or so that's what I'll be rolling with. These loads felt like a low brass bird shot even at 1175 fps. Theres no way I'll take the punishment from my 12 supermag again.
