Picture worked out fine. Did you pull the shot? Looks high to me.

Nope previously fed 2oz #4  hit dead on. I used a lb .683 choke tube and shot is high. I have to pattern more I think readjust scope and bring it lower. Looks like center of pattern is high.

A's you know it probably wouldn't be a bad pattern if it came down. I would try some #6 Longbeards...or H-13 #7s or equivalent.

I really like the #6 Longbeard XR'S as well, I am not a fan of #5's in anything, never got a pattern that I liked from any brand.

Not bad for #5's. Does look a touch high but that can be fixed. I am partial to the 2 ounce 3.5" load for the extra velocity but I have been impressed by the way they just flat out crumple turkeys at 40 yards or less.
