FoxTrot ammo and IC chokes = Ready for Fall Turkey season!
« on: September 29, 2020, 02:01:47 PM »
I was very fortunate to end up with an awesome 11-87 in Greenleaf this summer (found it for a steal).  It's in great shape and finally brought this sucker to life!

FoxTrot ammo (Brice Hensley and if you have not shot them.. they are worth it!!!) in 8.5 TSS in 3".  I wish I could shoot lead, but a lot of our public land requires non toxic shot now.  Indian Creek .670 choke to open the pattern up just a bit :)

Here's the gun and the pattern at 43 yards (stepped off 40 and forgot I had my range finder until after I was done shooting :(

I about rolled over when I saw it.  I went right to it.  They had 475 on it, I walked out the door at 425 with it ....  they went to 400 on it and @ 25 for taxes.  It's probably 95% condition.  It's like brand new!  I wasn't sure I had the real deal at first.  The reception where I was at was awful.  I was trying to do research, yet not over due it and make them suspicious. 

I've been offered 4x what I paid and a guy at work keeps tempting me with 2500 for it.  I see this one being passed down to my kiddo :)

Nice TSS pattern, those 8.5's will be a hammer.

Foxtrot has been putting out some sweet looking patterns, good option for people that don't reload
