Hmm...The ad makes for fun reading but the 413bis may be a little OTT.

Nice looking gun, may make a wider fore end for mine.

Still, I'll see how it shoots first.

Cheers B.

Holy smokes. I was away from this thread for a couple of days and it sure gathered steam.  I've decided to chime in since any thread I post on immediately dies, (it is my superpower).  First off, the

Tested it today with 5, 6 and 7.5 shot.

Best pattern was at 25 yards with 7.5's.

Guess that'll be my max. distance (more or less).

Now just need to go and find a bird.

I have not been able to post for a little while, not that I was missed. I was Only able to go turkey hunting 3 times this year due to a sucker punch from my now ex-wife. I went on an overnight fishing trip to return to divorce papers and bank accounts depleted. Still working through the finals but here is a nice turkey killed with my double 410.

I’m no longer too concerned with how far the Catskill Gathering is for you. No excuses. I’ll bring fresh blueberries. Cobbler ?

You WERE missed  .....not many people have hunted turkeys with a 410 as long as you, and long before the magic powder miracle shot was invented..

DD Huntress,

 Could you please share the recipe? 

I'll try, I'm one of those pinch and dash cooks.

 

2 lbs of cooked shredded turkey

 

Place about 2 lbs of raw turkey in a bowl with

2 tbsp of olive oil

1 tsp of cumin powder

1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1 tsp dry oregano

2 tsp dry parsley 

1/4 cup lemon juice

 

Mix well coating turkey meat. Place turkey in a pan cover with aluminum foil,  seal the edges well and bake at 350 for 11/2 hours until turkey is tender. Shred turkey and set aside.

 

1 large white onion diced

3 tbsp olive oil

1 bulb of garlic minced

1 yellow bell pepper diced

5 good sized jalapenos diced (remove seeds       and pulp, you can use habanero peppers if you want it extra spicy)

2 15 oz cans of great northern beans(rinsed and drained)

1 cup of sliced mushrooms

1 cup of frozen white corn

2 cups of chicken broth

2 tsp powdered cumin

1 tsp powdered coriander

1 tbsp ground white pepper

1/2 cup dry white wine

Juice of 1 lime (just under 1/4 cup)

1/2 cup sour cream

Shredded pepper jack cheese to garnish

 

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add the yellow bell pepper, jalapenos and cook for 5 minutes.  Add the chicken broth, cumin, coriander, white pepper, beans, mushrooms, corn, shredded turkey, wine and lime juice. Bring to a boil reduce heat and simmer for about 35 to 40 minutes. Add salt to your liking. Add the sour cream, stir well and serve hot with pepper jack cheese for a garnish. Jalapeno bacon corn bread or garlic bread is great with this chili.

 

Enjoy!

DD Huntress,

 Thanks so much for the recipe. I can not wait to try it out.

 

Tim,

 Lead 7 1/2 is all I use. I like the Federal Premium.
