The NATIONAL WILD TURKEY FEDERATION has determined that the average distance at which turkeys are most effectively taken, under average environmental conditions and surroundings is 30 yards.
Subsequently, Mossberg® designed and manufactures highly specialized choke tubes for #4 or #6 lead shot to yield a high shot concentration and pellet count in a 20 inch circle at 30 yards. Shot patterns at distances greater than 30 yards will be less dense.
These special purpose "Turkey Tubes" are specifically designed for use with lead shot loads only.
Do not shoot steel shot through Extra Full turkey tubes as it may result in barrel damage.
Test results are averages and individual shotgun performance may vary. Mossberg recommends pattern testing with several brands of ammunition and at various distances to familiarize yourself with your shotgun's performance.
Do not attempt to assemble, load or use the Muzzleloading barrel until you thoroughly read and understand the information contained in this shotgun Owner's Manual and the contents of the Muzzleloading Barrel Owner's Manual.
You have a responsibility to obtain proper training on how to use and maintain your firearm. Certified and reputable instructions are offered by the National Rifle Association, The National Muzzleloading Rifle Association, Black Powder Association as well as state and local organizations. Seek guidance from an instructor who is qualified by one of these organizations.
Be certain the shotgun Owner's Manual and the Muzzleloading Barrel Owner's Manual are available for reference and supplied with the shotgun and/or the Muzzleloading Barrel if transferred to another party.
If either manual is lost or misplaced, request a free replacement copy from Mossberg.
Consult your local Department of Natural Resources and Wildlife or guidelines to confirm that this muzzleloading product will conform to local seasonal and legal requirements.
