All kidding aside I haven't seen the LB XR for sale locally yet, only in the Cabelas catalog. Ones thing's for sure right off the top, the LB XR at 18.99 for 10 is a whole lot more appealing than 37.00 for 5 on the HS blended. (rebate aside)
Your choke tube should work for any turkey load, just some better than others. Unfortunately the only way to find out is to hit the range and punch some paper. If you have the discretionary income, by all means let us know how XR and HS compare. Me I'm still laying 'em down with the Federal 4s I've been using for almost 20 years and striving to become a better turkey hunter, not a better long range shot. Please don't take that as knock on what you want to do Dewey, to each his own my brother!

As far as my first half test went Im really not impressed with the Longbeards. Hopefully, I will tell more about them in the next day or two. If I have any left over I have no problem sending a couple up there. I have the 3.5" #5 and #6. With that .664 choke that should throw them for quite a distance. If that will work for you just send me an email but if the 3.5" is too much for you I understand. .
