Default 3.5 Inch 4 Buck Shot, Choke Tube Help

I live in east central illinois and I can't find any 3.5 inch 12 guage 4 buck shot anywhere. I have looked on line and at all the local stores. I found some 3 inch that works OK but I would rather have 54 pellets vs 41. If anyone knows where I can order some please send me a personal message. Also, If anyone has any choke tube suggestions for a mossburg 835. I have an old Lohman turkey choke and I got 6 pellets in an 8 inch plate at 50 yards with a 3 inch 41 pellet 4 buck load. I think I can do a little better, any suggestions.

You could be over choking with the turkey choke. You may want to try a more open choke (Full, X-Full) just to see what happens. As a comparison, I think Kick's Chokes recommends a .720 constriction for that gun and #4 buck. Hope this helps.

I haven't used it with 3 1/2" but with 3" and it shoots great for me. I use remington's because they patterned the best. My grandson killed his first coyote with it this year 35 yds and he dropped like a rock.

I shoot 3 in. Remingtons like JMAC. They do pattern the best out of my gun, but try several different loads and see what works best with your gun. In all honesty, I have patterned my gun for all types of hunting, turkey, duck, etc. All in all I have found that almost all 3 inch shells out perform their 3.5 inch counterparts as far as pattern efficiency. Check that out, a 3 inch load will do everything you need it to.

That is good because I can't find any 3.5 inch shells. I just bought that choke tube so I should be set.

New Carlsons coyote choke tube in Mossberg 835, 11 pellets in 8 inch plate at 50 yards, with Remington 3 inch 4BK. From what I have read, I think that is pretty good and if I want to do any better I could spend 50$ for a box of dead coyote 3 1/2" T shot.

I have given up on finding 3.5 inch 4 BK shot. People are panicking and buying amunition like the Russians are invading the country. I was at gander mountain today and it reminded me of shopping on black friday.
