A friend of mine took two deer with his shotgun this past season.I don't know all the details.He has a scoped,rifled barrel gun with a drop chart on the stock.He ranged the deer with his range finder and calculated a 15 inch drop at 180 yards on one of them.He dropped it with one shot.I got some bologna and sweet sticks out of it.

so I decided to give them a try took my bird at 40yards I am done with the "Turkey" loads don't need them waste of money as far as I am concerned now

3.5" shells dont give you anymore power.All you get is a heavier load with the same powder load as a 2.75" shell. if you do a little ballistics check on them you will see you get better ballistics from a 2.75" shell. I think most people thing they or a better load is from the extra kick they give. Thats just from them havibg to push a heavier load
