Franchi Affinity patterns
« on: April 26, 2020, 03:45:11 PM »
Here is some 40yd patterns I shot today with my Affinity and Sumtoy .670 choke. Not really what I'm wanting but decent.

Just my opinion, but if that second pattern says federal heavy(15g) and that says “180”, I’d shoot a few more to make sure it’s consistent numbers wise. If it is, I’d buy as many more of those shells as you think you’ll use in your life, plus a few more boxes, and get to crushing turkey faces!

Just thought I would add some more patterns. Through a new Truglo SSX choke.

Here's a few more patterns shot today with a Carlson's .650 choke. All turkey loads was shot at 40 yards. Shot some field loads at 30 yards to check pattern because I hunt in the woods and most of my shots is under 30 yards. I think the 7.5 load would crush a turkey at 30 and under.

Got me a Franchi Affinity 3.5. Sure hope mine will pattern this good. I have a couple chokes to try out. Very nice patterns you have there.

Are the patterns listed with Fed 3" #7 Hwt. are those the original Federal Heavyweight #7s @ 15g/cc that they quit making?

Yes these were shot with the 3in #7 that they quit making. I have about a half a case left.

Is the Carlson’s .650 the standard or the Longbeard version?

Then I would go to Rogers website and buy as many as you can afford because those are THE BEST-MOST CONSISTENT patterns I've seen out of that shell. Do you shoot the 3.5" in the Federal Heavyweight or just 3"?
