Default pattern and shot disbursement - Testing Results

Well I had my first day out today for this experiment and below are the days results.
I will say this up front based on my criteria #6, 10, 3 anything in between is out as off 5 yards.
* My criteria "pattern at 15 yards of 4" or 5" from center of group".

Today i used a Mossberg 590A1 18.5 inch shotgun.

Ammunition varied based on what I could easily find at Alamo Pawn, Turners and Sportsmans Warehouse

Ammunition List below:
Kent 2 3/4" 12G #6 Turkey
Hornandy Black 2 3/4" 12G 00 Buck 8 pellet
Winchester 2 3/4" 12G #1 Buck 16 pellets
Remington 2 3/4" 12G 00 Buck 8 pellet - Managed Recoil
Royal Buck 2 3/4" 12G 00 Buck 9 pellet
Royal Buck 2 3/4" 12G 00 Buck 9 pellet - Low Recoil

Winchester 2 3/4" 12G 00 Buck 9 pellet - Low Recoil
