You have dead turkeys with the LB #5 & #4. But maybe if you have time you should try the 3" loads, and do it at 40yds., not close to 50, as your posted pictures.

Remember, just because your gun can shoot 3 1/2" loads, doesn't mean it likes them!

Good work, the LB's certainly will do the trick...as others have said patterning at 40 yards gives you a better comparison and any shot past that is fairly risky....just because your gun and combo seems capable of it, it's dangerous to encourage it cause many combos and many hunters can't make that shot.  It's the only thing that ticks me off about the Winchester LongBeard XR marketing, they are literally telling people that they have killing patterns out to 50-60-70 yards, afraid we might have a bunch of wounded turkeys when people start taking those shots...Either way, good luck to you and congrats on the success
shoot first, measure spurs later

They did the trick. Used 4s. First was a Tom at 50 yards, head snapped back and dead right there. Second was a Jake at less than 4 yards, dead right there. 

Using a scope helps tremendously with centering the patterning. The close shot I had to compensate for scope height.
