Her dad is a really good turkey hunter, but was skeptical of the 40 yd .410 shots. Gun shoots 135/ 10" at 40, so I told him it was good to 40, and a few steps farther. Glad he trusts me.

How'd ya know? :lol: The Rio was actually right at 78 of my 2 year old sons steps. In big boy steps, it came out to 37-38 yards. Not sure on the Eastern. I'm a flatlander, and I shot him at a very steep incline for my area. I think he may have been a bit further....but he wasn't far enough to escape the wrath.

A buddy's Osceola from this past weekend's opener. 13/16 oz TSS 9.5's at 38 yards. When asked how it did: "hit him like a brick"

His pattern ain't too shabby, either. At 40 yards, 10" ring, 169 with 9.5's out of a Sumtoy choke:

Now that is a perfect youth turkey setup right there. I never thought I would see the day that a .410 was printing 165 pellets in the 10" with pellets that can kill a turkey out to 40 yards. Amazing. Looks like you had the barrel cut down. Did Sumtoy do the work to cut and rethread the barrel or someone else?

Sumtoy, as noted above, cut the barrel to 22", threaded and choked it. I dunno who did the pad, but it doesn't quite fit, but does the job. My buddy noted he did it because "it kicks like a mule" to which I replied, but carries like a sparrow. Gil

Is he shooting brass hulls?

Yes, empty hull is visible across the bird's wattles. Gil

Gil-- Any chance your friend would be willing to run a 13/16oz. plastic hull load through the gun for comparison? I have a 25" .410 Yildiz currently with William, and I loaded 10 shells (13/16oz. Hal load) to test the gun with. The goal was to figure out what length barrel/choke is optimal, and I'm exceptionally interested in understanding the variance in performance between a brass and plastic hull out of that 22" barrel. If my 25"' gun shoots plastic hull loads and delivers ~120 in a 10" @ 40 yards while your buddies 22" gun shoots ~140 with a plastic hull, I can assure you I'd be asking William to cut the barrel down before mailing it home. He's welcome to shoot from the batch of shells I sent William if he's local to the shop. -Keith
