Bought a new turkey slayer

Bought the Remington V3 turkey pro today. Excited to send some shells thru it. Not a scope guy on my turkey gun. Took it off and sold it to a buddy. Anyone have this gun? Is the stock turkey choke good or should I look into buying one?

I'm probably going to do the same thing. I like looking down the rib. Can't wait to get mine and pattern it. Just reading about the "Headbanger" choke makes me think it will be WAY too tight for me... but we'll see.


Please post some pics of gun....patterns. I'm Jonesing, lol.

Fall gobbler, I got mine at elk county ammo and arms. I like the feel on it a lot. I had a versa max and was never comfortable with it. This one is lighter and shorter.

Yeah it’s a 12 gauge, 24 inch barrel. Only comes in 2 3/4 and 3 Inch shell Options. Very nice and light. Need to figure out if a different choke or not.

Congrats on the new gun! It sounds about perfect for specialized turkey work in tight cover.

As for the choke, my personal rule of life - for any shotgun in any function - is to ALWAYS give the factory choke a chance at the pattern board before buying an aftermarket.

I have owned more than one gun where the factory choke gave as good or better patterns than various aftermarket chokes with my ammo of choice. If you can’t get quality patterns, of course, move on. But never presume that the choke you already paid for is simply not good enough before you prove that as fact.
