Looks like a dead turkey either way. I would go with less recoil if it is decipherable.

They both look great to me. I do see a difference in the center of the patterns though. Even though the count 'in the red' is higher, the Remington pattern is definitely high and right. Obviously not enough to matter, and it may have been 'operator error'.

I'm with AL. IF there is a difference in felt recoil, that'd be the one I chose.

It's nice when they shot 'good' isn't it?

I didn't know about those, Ron. I'll be getting some for my daughters to try in their new SxS 20s they got for Christmas.

If I can find them... :(

those are some darn tight patterns for 30 Yards. I seriously doubt my ulti-mag 835 with 3 1/2's could do that. I know it won't at 40. a friend of mine came over to pattern his red label and started at 30 yards with 3" shells (12 gauge). Seven fell in the kill zone. I think I would rather have your 20 gauge!!!! God Bless.

I think I would rather have your 20 gauge!!!! God Bless.Actually it is two separate guns. The first pattern w/#4 Pb was fired from a 26" barrel Mossberg® Mdl 500C w/a Hastings® Extended Turkey Choke .570''. The second pattern, with #5 Pb, was shot through a Remington® (Baikal®) SPR 220 w/26½" barrel w/a Colonial Arms® Extended Turkey Choke, also .570". 550", 555", and 570"chokes give the best patterns in a 20ga in my experience. With my guns shooting patterns this well I have no need to ever use my 12ga guns. God Bless to you also.

I always elect to do pattern checks (for turkey) at 50 yrds....however,
both examples shown, are adequate...you can make 'em "lay down and
wait" with either....the lighter shotgun would be my preferance and the
shot-shell with greatest penetration per distance, would be the one I'd
select..........problem is, I can't get one to get within 50 yrds of me, :no: .....BH51..
