Trouble Patterning Shotgun for Turkey
 
Hello all, as you all know, spring turkey season is quickly approaching. So, I have a Baikal Remington Spartan 12 gauge 3.5" and I ordered a Carlson's choke tube with a diameter of .665". We patterned it with standard 3.5" Turkey loads (#4 and #6). First I shot at 20 yards, and I was sighted in but my pattern was unusually wide. So, eventually, I backed out to 40 yards and it patterned with 48 pellets in a 10" circle at 40 yards. Now I heard somewhere that you need to have at least 100 pellets in a 10" circle at either 30 or 40 yards ( I can't remember). Either one, my gun is not patterning good for turkey hunting standards. I had a guy suggest Hevi-shot for better patterns and overall performance, but it is $27.99 for 5 shotshells! I can't afford that. I need a cheaper solution. Any help guys?
