    I havn't shot it at close range but thats a good idea. I did shoot it from a bench rest and lined the back of the rib with the front sight. I put the front sight on the bottom of the turkey head. the pattern I got was 6 pellets no lower that 2" below the turkeys eye. the rest of the 200 or 300 pellets were above the turkey target. I shot my beretta at the same 40 yard target and got a 50/50 pattern, every thing the same?

    I have a Browning A500 and mine shoots a little high too but not that high. I would put on a tall fiber optic front bead that is designed for turkey hunting. I have done so much trapshooting with a high shooting gun that I am not able to shoot a gun with a 50/50 POI. My A500 has worked without a hitch since I bought it brand spankin new in 1988.

    You need to drop the POI about 15 inches. A front bead about 5/16 tall might do that. You will have to aim, of course, use that new bead like a rifle's. I don't know if you can do that turkey hunting; you will have to answer that, Doug.
