Difference?

My dad made a deal with me that if I made it to states in wrestling, he would take me to Missouri for a turkey hunt. After I made it, he told me that if I placed, he would buy me a new shotgun to take out. I ended up making out pretty good on that deal. We were looking at a couple different guns. My question is, what is the difference between the Mossburg 535 and 835? Or is there any other guns that you would recommend that aren't to expensive?

Re: Difference?

Congrats on your trip to states!

I have the 835 ulta-mag. IT IS A TURKEY'S NIGHTMARE! I love that gun.... and for the price, in my opinion, it is one of the best turkey guns available.

Re: Difference?

Have enjoyed my 835 on several snow goose hunts. Never had any problems except when I short shucked with some 3 1/2" shells. I normally just shoot 3".

Re: Difference?

835's are perhaps the best patterning turkey guns out there! The barrels are overbored, I don't believe the 535's are.
I have an 835 and also shoot a Benelli SBE 2. My Mossberg throws better patterns than my Benelli.

Congrats on states!
What did you place and at what weight class?

Re: Difference?

Guns are individuals. I have a New England Firearms that patters slightly better than my 500.
