Remington Premier Magnum Turkey Loads Shotshells
i have used the 3in in a 20ga remington 870 and they have patterned good. i decided to purchase some 3.5in 12 guages for my new mossberg 535. let me tell you that 3in is plenty enough. i expected the 3.5 to kick about as much as my 30-06(that i have an incredible limbsaver on). the thing kicks more than a .50cal according to my cousin. the 3.5in is not necissary, the 3in in my opinion is ideal. if you have perfect trigger control and you want to add a limbsaver to your existing recoil pad then go ahead and get the 3.5in both 3in and 3.5in patter good and both can reach out to range. overall it seems like a good round for the price.

Tight pattern and Very Good Range
The Remington 3 1/2 inch #6 is in my opinion a very great shell for those who want the distance. The recoil is not bad compared to the Federal Flightcontrol, which almost made my shoulder bleed after two shots. The pattern at 45 yards I was able to get 36 pellets in the head. That is all I need. Winchester Double X Magnum is another shell if you cannot find the Remingtons.

I have used these loads for two years out of a 3 1/2" 870 supermagnum with extra full ported choke and they are deadly. On a standard turkey paper target I consistently have 20 to 25 pellets in the kill zone at 45 yards using number sixes. I wouldnt change for the world.

I bought these just to test chokes to see which one worked best in my gun. I also purchased three other types of turkey loads, various brands. All turkey loads were 3.5 in with #4 shot. I not only found the proper choke but also the brand and load for my Benelli SBE2. Very surprised to with the results, 65 pellets inside the 8in target with 6 in the bull. Test distance at 92 feet, with primos turkey jelly head choke. Testing is over.. will be hunting with these!
