    I would just like to see how far people are killing their birds and what they used.

    I used a 1187 Remington (open sights) with 3 inch Winchester Longbeard XR #5s
    Kill was 50 yards on first bird and 5 yards on number two.

    Winchester SX3, Carlsons Longbeard xr choke, 3" Longbeard XR #5s. Rolled one at 72 yds last Tuesday morning. Honestly thought he was more in the 60-65 yd range when I shot (which I feel comfortable shooting) but got up to him and ranged back to my spot and sure enough it was 72 yds. It is amazing how far ammo has came in the last few years.
