Started with a 30" barrel 870 with 2 3/4" chamber. Moved to a 870 with 3" chamber and killed a pile of them.

Upgraded 12 or 14 years ago to an 870 SPS Turkey in 3.5" and until my last bird in MO, that's all I've used since.

Now that I've killed one with the .410, I'm wondering if I'll go back to the 870.

Jeb’s Head Hunter.....XFull
They say this gun is designed for Federal Ammunition, but I didn’t like it. I used the factory choke and the Jebs when setting it up but the Jebs was a little better......I used Apex 7/8 ounce 9.5’s and Rogue 27/32 9’s and the Rouge was far superior....out of both chokes. The Apex was fine but the Rogue was a better pattern for me.

I’ve killed several nice gobblers with the Stevens 301T in .410 that “I bought for my daughter”... shoots apex loads great out of factory choke and it’s amazing how well the small shot/small shell works on a gobblers noggin!





Congrats..Smile says it all..

Can I borrow some pics..I ain't got none for 2021...

Been looking at The Jebs Thanks..

Just kidding... Congrats well done..
