I way misjudged distance on this one a few weeks ago
....I was in the edge of some thick woods and he was out in a field strutting and gobbling. He got as close as he was going to (I had been working him for over an hour) so I took the shot. I am not proud of taking a 60 yard shot...BUT look at what a load of Hevi-shot 6's did to him at that distance...
Needless to say he didn't get up. His head had atleast a dozen holes in it so he definitely took the center of the pattern. I was amazed at the pattern at that distance. It looked like I shot him at about 25 yards. I am officially sold on those shells.
I patterend them out to 50 yards and was getting 50+ pellets in the kill zone. I try to draw the line at taking shots to about that distance and feel comfortable with my gun out to there for those "he ain't getting any closer" scenerios. Further than 50 was my mistake so glad my gun compensated for my error in judgement.
