Perfect... Thanks

Have you ever used a bipod with a shotgun? I don't own a fancy rest... yet. I have a Harris bipod benchrest height and can come up with some sandbags for the stock. On my backyard shooting table, I use my toolbox with a jacket over it sometimes. I also have some shooting sticks, but don't like them much.

Whatever it takes to get steady and try to eliminate the human factor as much as possible.

I would love to see an honest 70 yard pattern. E mail me a photo of your 70 yard pattern and I will post it here for you.

GC where are you finding those Rem HD BB loads? I can't seem to ever find them in stock anywhere.

Picked up some Rem Hevi-Shot (not HD) B-shot cheap and thought I'd give it a try. Any using out of a Mossberg 835 w/24" bbl. I'm looking for a choke starting point.

If it don't work out, I can always give it to my buddy for ducks/geese.

Thanks !!!

And worse, that load has been discontinued by Remington. I have a big stash of those HD-BB's so I'm good for awhile. However if it were me setting out to find a really great load right now I'd give the Federal Heavyweight Coyote Load of tungsten BB's using the Flite Control wad a real hard look. Don't use a ported or wad stripping choke. That Federal load has the potential to be something really special.

I just ordered a bunch of different stuff. Another box of Fed Copper BB's, Some of the Rem 2-3/4 HD BB's, Win Extended B, and a few varieties of #4 Buck. Just picked up a Stoeger 2000 with 24" barrel. Not looking forward to patterning again but it's gotta be better than the Mossy 535.

Woow awsome thread guys GC thanks for getting a great topic started.
Thanks everyone for all the great input and awsome pics of all the great load-choke patterns.
I went and patterned my Browning BPS with factory mod. choke about two months ago and it is shotting a foot high and left 6" at 40 yards with 3" dc t and 3" #4 buck Federal and rem both.
Oh i shot left handed if that tells you anything.
I was shotting at a 20" circle and got get hits even with point of aim being off.
When the weather slacks up some ill do a better pattern test with pics.
Again awsome thread and great work guys.
