THey've got a Mossberg 535 in 3 1/2 and they've got an 835 and 935.
This one's just an 835 with some bells and whistles. I'm stoked and ready to smoke a gobbler with it. :thumb:
The Mossbergs are overbored to about a 10 gauge bore. That is why most of the chokes you see will be larger than the standard 12 guage choke. I have a .680 and a .695. I use the .695 turkey hunting. Generally what I've seen with the .695 is the more shot you put in the barrell the better the pattern. If you can find a 2.25 oz load or larger you will typically get better patterns @ 40 yds. I use a 2.25 oz triplex heavishot load in mine. The same company makes a 2 5/8 oz copper coated lead load for the mossberg but I like my shoulder too much to try them.Anybody using one of these? The look great IMO. I hope to have one by sundown. :wink: It's got a .695 choke in it. That's a lot bigger than most I've seen. Kinda wondering what kind of pattern that will produce.
$419 at Hawks in Jonesboro for the 535. Yours is the 835? What did it list for.535 has a different barrel. I was going to go with one of those because of price but everyone I picked up, the pump rattled like crazy and was loose as a goose. $419 Where!? That's less than the 535's were where I bought mine :smack:
