View Full Version : Turkey Gun Setup
What do you have?
Mine: Remington 1100, clean, no add-ons.
Wife: Camo Mossberg 930 with an Undertaker XX choke and fiber optic Gobble Dot sights.
I like a .22WMRF rifle or an iron sighted revolver. .38 Special with LSW loads works well.
4x power scope
full and x-full screw chokes
thumbhole boyd's stock
patterns out to 35-40yards with a cosistent 9-14" circle.
Mossberg 835 12Ga. Ulti-Mag, 28", camo, ported bbl with an extra full tube.
Pair that up with my Remington Nitro Turkey 3 1/2" 2-4's and it has not failed me yet. :cool:
Rem. 870 Super Mag 3 1/2" 28" barrel with 1.5 - 4.5 X 32mm BSA scope .665 Star Dot ported choke with 3 1/2" Federal High Velocity 2oz #5 shot. Holds a full pattern average 14 inch at 40 yards. I had to put the scope on it because it shot so tight at 15 to 25 yards it was like shooting a slug. I have to take some longer shots than most people because of hunting pressure in my area. Too many people fooling with and spooking them and they get wise real quick and don't want to come in too close.
Browning BPS 3.5" 12 gauge, Rhino .660 ported choke, shooting Nitro Ammo's 2 & 5/8 ounce economy hevi shot.
#1 - Browning BPS 3" 12 gauge, Realtree Hardwoods, Tru-Glo Gobble Stopper Extreme choke, Hi-Viz front sight
#2 - Benelli SuperNova 3.5" 12 gauge, matte black, pistol grip, Benelli extra full turkey choke, Hi-Viz front sight
Benelli Super Black Eagle with 24 inch barrel and Rhino choke set up for shooting Nitro's
Remington 870 with 26 inch barrel and jelly head choke
Benelli Nova with same Rhino choke as the SBE
Well If I ever get out Turkey hunting, I'll use either my 870 Express or my Mossy 500. Nothing special about either one of them.
Browning BPS, Rhino .660 choke, Burris Fastfire Red Dot, and Nitro Company custom 378i 4x5x7 Hevi Shot ammo..
I also use a Benelli M-1 with the Rhino .660 Choke and the Nitro ammo once in a while.
The ammo is the key. It is wicked stuff....guaranteed to punch his lights out.:supergrin:
Win. SuperX2 black w/ standard bead. Win. full turkey choke. (have used the Undertaker w/ good results as well) Win. supreme 3.5 inch #4's
Mossberg 500 12ga, interchangable choke tubes, ported, ribbed 20in barrel, woodland camo from the factory.
Mossberg 835 12Ga. Ulti-Mag, 28", camo, ported bbl with an extra full true glow tube.
i use rem. heavy shot #5. the best thing i did was add a sims recoil pad.
Is this an anti-gun picture thread? Everybody has a turkey setup, but nobody has a camera! :dunno:
Here's a shot of my BPS. Kick's .660, Burris Fastfire...
WA Merriams and a Steve Mann custom Match Grade box..........tools of the trade.:supergrin:
Bout as early as I have ever killed one- still fairly dark at 5:15 AM. This bird and another Longbeard pitched off the limb and landed in gun range.
Remington 870 SuperMag with all camo furniture
Forget the brand of choke, but it's designed for use with HeviShot
#6 3.5" HeviShot
Rolled a bird with it this past fall with no problems.
