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

    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?

    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.

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

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