Just thought I'd give you turkey nuts a heads up, I've got my mossberg 835 for sale in the classifieds. Turkey model, all you 11-87 guys finally got me to sell the 835 for a semi auto finally!

What would you need a Rem semi for? with a gobblin thunder choke and winchester #6 shot x-tended range 835 is the best turkey gun going. JMHO no need for a semi... turkey hunting is a one shot game for most hunters. LOL

I agree also....Its hard to get another shotgun to pattern like an 835 with the right set up.....My 835 smokes my buddy's Benelli SBII at 40.....Its just a good patterning gun

I get an excellent pattern with this gun as well, true 50 yard killer. But thats not the game to me, I like em close. If I carried this gun everytime I went out over the few yearsIve hunted I couldve killed twice as many birds. In fact Ive killed more with my 20 guage 870 modified choke than this gun. I guess I worded it wrong but just in general everyone has convinced me I "need" a semi auto! It will be a multipurpose gun.

Mathewsg5, Im not surprised the 835 outshoots the SBE, how much can you expect from an overpriced piece of plastic! haha

There is no shotgun that will outshoot a stock 835, period.
Well, I beg to differ. That all dpends on how much time a person is willing to put into a setup. Given enough time any gun can be made into a supreme turkey slayer. That being said, if you want the quickest way to success, or to just pick up any box of shells, and a turkey choke, and get a decent pattern, the 835 is your best bet.

Hunters can debate which gun and load is best; however, if you pattern your gun to have a good POI, tight group, use a steady hand, use the proper load/shot size and stay within your sure kill zone it does not matter which gun we use.

But it is fun to debate as many turkey hunters have done a lot of research and spent several $$ to come up with the combo they favor.

What is important is they we have fun, stay legal and ethical in our persecute of the elusive Spring Gobbler.

Killed all my birds with a Remington 870 Supermag pump. Any gun will kill a bird but brand name is a personal choice. To each their own!

You can't go wrong with an 835 as a turkey slayer.
