Thinking about getting a turkey choke for my Remington 870 12 gauge. What's your favorite turkey choke?
Everybody likes what they like, but there are lots of reasons why that load wouldn't be in the top 100 turkey loads out there.You can't beat a 10ga shooting old lead BB shot. Them birds are not going to get away.
You have to use what you have. And with lead shot being banned for waterfowl those lead BB shot have to be used somewhere and I got tired of shooting clay pigeons with it.Everybody likes what they like, but there are lots of reasons why that load wouldn't be in the top 100 turkey loads out there.
That Carlson's .670 is a good choice for a turkey choke, if you are shooting typical turkey shells. But the choke choice is of secondary importance to your choice of ammo.
The biggest bang for your buck is going to be the ammo. Get something like Hevi-13 3" 2 oz #6s, or Hevi-13 Magnum Blend, or Winchester Longbeard #6s or #5. Then see how they pattern through the Carlsons and your factory full if you have one. See how far you get 100 in a 10" circle at and there you have your bonafide turkey killing range.
