    I NOTISED THAT MOST TURKEY HUNTERS USE 3 1/2 INCH SHELLS. I WS WONDERING IS THERE RELLY A SIGNIFICANT ADVANTGE IN THESE OVER 3 INCH MAGNUMS?

    I go with the 3 inch. Can reach just as far as the 3 1/2 and has less kick.

      3" is plenty. The only difference I notice is in my shoulder.

        Just another way for ammo and gun manufacturers to sell another product. Funny thing, all my turkeys (15 and counting) have been shot with 23/4 shells. They seem to work fine.

          There probably is not a great deal of difference between the 3" and 3.5", but I shoot the big shell because I work too hard to get these old educated easterns within range and I want every litte extra bit of shot possible out there doing battle with the brush, twigs and leaves that I often have to shoot through. Yes, lighter loads will work if you get the turkey close enough in open country, but I'd hate to lose or wound a gobbler because I didn't have a heavy enough load. Why tempt failure?

            Eight to nine pellets are required for a clean kill-so with other factors and variables mixed in -more raises the potential for success
