i use 3 1/2 inch turkey loads with a modified choke. ino its crude to a point of using turkey loads but at 40 yards and in the head their gonna be like Elvis.

I've used a full with Number 4 or 00 buck. I've also used slugs out of a 20 gauge. All will kill them. I've heard of guys using BB. I guess the theory is lots of little holes is better than a few big ones. :?:

I have use BBB and T shot it my 10ga on geese and I thought it would work great on coyotes but it is just it thery cause I have not shot any with it yet. the BBB and T pellets are just a little bigger than 22 leads.

We prefer full choke, 10ga-20ga. 3"-3 1/2" shells High brass no.4's down to 00 buck. Depends on how far we are expecting the shot and if we're hunting anything else at the same time.
