Magnum blend 3" patterns
« on: April 26, 2015, 07:09:59 PM »
I have a 24" barrel winchester 1300 that I used a ssx choke tube in with the 3" magnum blends.  I lasered the 40 yards and took two shots because I was on limited time.  I looked around and I can't seem  to find any patterns with the 3" mag blends  come close to what I came up with.  Is this an average pattern with the blends? Any input?  I actually did worse with the heavy #7s.

Looks really good. Can't read the number though in the pics. How many hits on each shot ?

267 and 236, I was being conservative too whenever their was a discrepancy on how many pellets made that big hole.  I kind of feel like this should be too good to be true? Maybe it's really 35 yards taped out?

What would be considered a good average with the 3" mb then?

My Mossberg with 3" magblends is right in the 220-240 range and 250+ with 3.5". I think there's a good chance youve just got a good patterning gun and choke combo and I think the shells are mostly #7's either way there deadly

Ok,  I will be doing more testing. My jellyhead shot the #7s better then the mag blends but still only put up 208, and my ssx really did not like the #7s at all.

If it is not exactly 40 yards and even if it is 35 then you are more than good to 40 yards as you may would lose 40-50 hits.  I would hunt it with no problem.  Good luck!

Mossberg 535 and a .660 primos tightwad choke . I have done a lot of testing and it is just a great combo for both hevi 7's and magnum blends. shoots great with hevi, but not that impressive with lead.

All of the rangefinders I have used have been within 1 yard. I would be shocked if your rangefinder was 5 yards off, especially at such a short distance of 40 yards.

Agreed.  I have an old nikon that I got when they first came out and even that goes to 1/2 yard increments.  I've even checked mine against known distances and it's been on target.
Nice pattern.
