28 yards (shooting off of my trailer railing as a rest) 3 1/2 inch Kent #5s- 2 1/4oz ďdiamond shotĒ I had to move my add on rear sight back to lower the pattern to get on target because it was a bit high. Almost to much shot on target I have the same shells in 3 inch.

Italian slug rear site the best I found made for the the Italian thinner brand shotgun ribs but with a little filing and it fits a Versa Max no problem.

X2 25 yards with a 3 1/2 any size shot or shell should cut the head off . Don't know about you guys but unless he sneaks in behind me he ain't getting within 25 yards before I shoot !!!

It fun to watch them dance so I'm in no hurry unless they start to walk off.

Shot it again today. Pretty much the same. 201 in the 10" and 137 in the 10"-20". Loaded up ten more of them so my boy is ready. My 301 already has a load it likes. Gonna work on a LC Smith in the morning if the weather cooperates. Pretty sure it will be a 25-30 yard max tho. I will try to post those patterns.

Franchi affinity with a Indian Creek .665 6 shot winchester xr had 175 pellets in a 10 inch circle at 40 yards. Not really impressed out past that. It's got a few holes in the pattern but I think it will do the job.

With the TSS and other Super Shots.... I have no idea why anyone would pack a 3 1/2" gun thru the woods.
