I agree, Mot rangefinders are +/- .5 yards. Thats a half yard. I say yours is dead on and you just have a great pattern. I have always liked the Mag Blends. I may have to add a SSX to my choke collection for the 1300.

I've got and ssx for my 1300, it gives great patterns. Im not happy with how long it is, I may send it off to get dipped this off season. That pattern looks awesome.

The Mag Blends throw the best pattern that I have ever seen.  It is amazing how effective
these shells are....

just got my barrel back from sumtoy. I bought a second barrel for my 870, go the forcing cone cut out. and had a choke made to shoot the longbeard 3" #6s. I got 233 in a 10" circle at 40 yards with the longbeard #6s out of the 21" barrel. with my stock barrel 28" with no work done to it and the sumtoy choke I shot 263 at 40 yards. pretty dang good. I keep my stock barrel for those field bird days, and use my short for woods hunting. 20-30 pellet difference in the 21" vs the 28" but sumtoy definetly helped me keep a great pattern for a 3" shell, and it shot 20-30 pellets better with it vs the jellyhead which is a pretty dang hard choke to beat

Those are some awesome numbers with 3" MBs. It's a keeper and good luck.

Those longer barrels sometimes shoot better patterns, but are harder to get though the woods with! I have a 30" barrel for an 870 that shoots some great pattern, but there's no way I'm carrying that long pipe around.

My 870 is in the 240-250 range with the Mag Blends, so I wouldn't say they're wrong, just a great pattern.  Be happy, I know I am!

Hmm? I have the same set up with my winchester 1300 and SSX truglo choke (.643) boy that pattern looks exciting.  I was thinking of buying 3.5 and also look at the hevi-shot triple beard (which is like speed ball cousin) now I am not so sure.  3 inch is cheaper and looking at that pattern...deadly.  I will post my results later this week.

So I went out today...only day I could go. A little windy and cold for my liking, but you take your days when you get them.  I have the same set up. Winchester 1300, SSX choke.  I used Hevi-shot 3 inch magnum blend and......

I didn't get the same results.. ???  I took two shots. I unfortunately lost the first shot, but it looked fairly the same pattern as the second.

I wasn't conservative and used a paper plate on cardboard box. That being said....the paper plate is 10 1/6 size.

Pellet count was approximate 90 at 40 yds. And I did laser the distance.  Sooo. Now what?  Thought of trying a faster load with the new Triple beard (1300 fps)

Any thoughts or advice.  I will post the pictures soon.
