I patterned my A-5 and got 139 in a 10" circle at 40 yards. I used a patternmaster and #6 longbeards. 3" shells. I have a 26" barrel. I shot patternmaster (.675), trulock (.665), Jebs (.655) and a pure gold (.670). I used #5 and #6 longbeards and also magblends 5,6,7. The best was the pattermaster. I'll be honest with you, I don't know how some of these guys are getting 200+ at 40 yards.

i patterned mag blend with the patternmaster as well.  Averaged 170 in 10" @ 40 yards.  I am not getting the numbers i did with my browning maxus.  im thinking my choke constriction is a little too open for the mag blend or 6s.   it shoots 5s the best percentage wise.

really nice patterns.!  Did you shoot those combo's at 20 yards?  It seems like it would be like shooting a slug at 20 yards.  i always wanted to try those jebs chokes though!

Thanks for sharing Jimmy W!  I just got a new A5 and will start out with that choke/shell combo and see how it works.  Happy Hunting!

I shot the first shot at 20 and it was mostly a hole with a few shots around it
