To increase accuracy potential for my Mossberg 500 which I use for coyotes and now for turkey hunting I added a Picatinny rail and Tasco Red Dot scope to it's 20 inch barrel which I have outfitted with a Carlsons Dead Coyote choke. I then sighted in using Rem 7 1/2 target loads at fifteen yards. The Tasco sighted in just fine and I had it zeroed after about five rounds. I then took the target out to 25 yards and patterned with the three different hunting loads I picked Fiochi 3 inch turkey loads both four shot and six and Remington Nitro Turkey loads in number five shot. They all more then adequately and lethally at twenty five so I took them out to forty yards. The Remington Nitro patterned best although they'd all do and the Remington also patterned more then well at fifty. This pleased me well as I know feel totally confident if a fifty yard shot is presented. I did call the Colorado DOW to make sure the Red Dot scope and or scopes period on shotguns for turkey are legal in spring and they are.
Here's the gun now:[attachment=0]0409001105a.jpg[/attachment]
