Remington 870 23" Hevi Shot #6
« on: March 19, 2017, 09:27:04 PM »
Here are the pics of the 6 shots I took with the hevi 13 #6 3-1/2" loads out of a hevi .662 choke at 40 yards














Think this is the load and choke combo I will go with, a little concerned on the pellet count variability...any ideas? Debating further adjusting my red dot, adjusted it as I patterned but may leave it as it is in shot pattern 6 since I normally aim at the wattles what do y'all think?

All of these patterns are good killing ones. It looks to me that your hitting high consistently? If I'm using a red dot like you I'd go ahead and zero that dude for poa/poi to be the same. Can't be to careful when the pressure is on right before the shot. I've been known to go brain dead at times. But that's just me.

Found out my gun likes to be shot with a barrel that's been wiped 3 times with a bore snake to give good consistency. I also zeroed in my red dot sight to get it where it needs to be. Did two adjustments, one before shot 1...still a little high...adjusted it once more before the second shot an it was dead on. Pretty impressed with how this gun patterns
