I really appreciate all of your comments and feedback. I'd like to see these shoots give all of us information that we could use and that would be more helpful to all of us.

It's also very true that attendance at these shoots has dwindled to just a very few folks, even at the World Championship Shoot. There may be many reasons for this but at least one, in my opinion, is that there is no relevance to turkey hunters.

Most manufacturers seem also to have lost interest in the results due to the standard, 3" circle, that is used to judge their products.

Again, I really appreciate your input, value it and would like to hear any other comments or suggestions you might have.

Thanks again,
Clark

I've shot a lot of different loads through my gun and settled on one that has the most consistent pattern in a 10 to 15" circle at 40 yards. I not looking for the ball in the middle. Right now that's shooting 3 1/2" Win. Extended Range #5 through a Jellyhead.
