Tell him you want your money back.

I wouldn't carry a 3.5" gun running hevi 6s or mag blend that wasn't over 220.

Seen way too many that will do it after a good barrel polish and frankly, I've never seen a gun worked on by roberts that posted impressive patterns.

Just my honest opinion.

I have to honestly agree. I have had 3 guns with the 3" blend pattern over 200 with little to no modifications other than an aftermarket choke. Ive had 3 others in 3.5" pattern over 220 with no more than an aftermarket choke.

Is the first circle a 10" circle? Looks like a 20" followed by a 30".

Regardless, it's a very even, great looking pattern.  Looks like very few in the second ring.

Extrema 1 24" barrel
Forcing cone lengthened
trigger job


Rob Roberts patterned at 40 yards
Rob Roberts .650 choke tube
Hevi-Shot Mag Blend

181 pellets in 10"
337 pellets in 20"
387 pellets in 30"

What do you think?
I think thats a good shooting gun especially for 24 inch,   you will have to run a whole box of ammo , cleaning between shots on a warm... windless day to come up with a fair evaluation

I don't think I would be happy spending that kind of money for those results. He is a reputable gunsmith who is bound to help you out in some way.

I'm shooting 24" barrel Xtrema.

I'm getting 230 with hevi 3.5/2.25/ 6's and 333 with hevi 3.5/2.25/7's (in a 10" even to 20")

All I did was deep clean the barrel and screw in a hevi choke.

Are you using the 0.671 hevi choke?

Not at all a fair comparison. Mag Blends do not have as many pellets. I do however agree the numbers are not that impressive, but it is one heck of a nice even hunting pattern.

Maybes it's just me but I would take that pattern in the 20 all day long. May not be the best "numbers" pattern but sure looks to be even all around.

nice even pattern...dead turkey all day but I agree with the others I'm surprised you're not looking at a 200 pattern with that set up...I'm shooting the 3 1/2 #6 Hevi 13 out of a Roberts Final Strut .660 and getting over 200 in 10", no forcing cone work...fought a couple other chokes, just have to find the right combo but that weapon and load should be capable of more.
shoot first, measure spurs later

Hey Bassmaster...Don't pay any attention to the naysayers. There's no turkey head in the world that could survive that pattern...You go kill 'em! :OGturkeyhead:

That's exactly what a hunting gun should do. great pattern! RR could have gotten more in the 10 if that was his thing but unless directed otherwise he purpose is the best turkey killing gun he can produce. That even 20" is a better killing factor in the woods than most will ever admit.

I agree with most here.  There are too many in the 20 inch.  You need to move some from that 20 into the 10.  Remember, the 20" is for a little wiggle room on a bad shot.  You should have the majority of your shot in that 10. If you could move 50 into that 10" I would say good.  Heck, I've got 20 ga's that give better results.  I've never see forcing cone work that was worth it...just my opinion.

Looks like a good turkey killing pattern to me.  Just center your pattern up & you'll be good to go.  Don't get caught up in the extreme high numbers in a 10" circle game.  A good even pattern with enough shot for a clean kill is much more important to me.  That's just my preference.
