    I wonder if they are making the cheap lead loads shoot like crap on purpose so people spend the big bucks and they make a bigger profit.
    I won't be using shells that cost $5-7 dollars each I will start reloading, find something that works and buy enough supply's to last my life time.

    I use the XR 3 inch 5's 1 3/4 with a Carlson LBXR choke and a red dot to center the pattern. I've tried lots of combinations over the years and this works the best of all of them. If the pattern gets any tighter I might as well use a rifle.

    I used to have a 835 tactile turkey I could never get it to pattern consistantly no matter what shell or choke i used and I tried several multiple times finally sold the gun got a Winchester SXP turkey and have been very pleased w it the factory choke for this gun is very good Ive killed several birds w it. I killed a few w the 835 but it cost me some birds too thought it was me until I kept trying to get a consistent pattern from it and couldn't.
