After working up a Turkey load in my 10ga Pedersoli I noticed pattern after pattern always would shoot about 3"-4" off center towards the barrel side it was fired from? Is this normal? I've heard of filing muzzle and such and would rather not do that! I've also read somewhere how barrels are designed to shoot center at 40yds and will be off to one side or the other at lesser ranges? Gun has 2 beads and with my 1.25oz field loads it'll shoot center height but with my 1/2oz heavier turkey loads I have to "snowman" smaller front bead on larger rear bead and then block out head of turkey target so pattern hits up in vitals. I'm using 1.75oz of mixed shot and 80gr ffg T7. Penetration is good at 30yds which is my personal max with gun and it gives me over 10 pellets consistently in vitals every shot. Any help or insight would be great.
