"Ol' Gal" with a Ventilator Choke and 3" Hevi 13 #7's will flat out stomp one.  Wish I still had the pattern pics for that one!

Ventilator has definitely been consistent in every Remington I have shot. Its a shame Remington doesn't offer it any more.

My previous post was off. I counted 87 in the ten at 40 yards with #5 when I patterned a few weeks ago. Even pattern for a sure kill though. The same gun/choke does 185 with long beard #5.

My 870/Kicks .660 will scare 100 from time to time with the 3” 5’s.  Shoots a better 40yd pattern with XX 3/2/6’s and Kicks .655. Both are great for hunting inside 35-40yds.

2 oz #5 or 1 3/4 oz load?

The Winchester XX 3/2/5’s (Red Shell). The HV 1 3/4 5’s shot in the 80’s.
Inside 35yds they are both good hunting patterns. Felt more confident shooting the 6’s in the long run.

Where do you find the 2oz loads? I have looked locally and online, can only find the 1 3/4 oz.
