HEVI-Shot Magnum Blend Turkey Load Shotshells
By far the best turkey load ever
Started hunting with Hevi-Shot this spring and have been very impressed with this load. Bought two boxes and a Indian Creek turkey choke in March at the Bass Pro Shops in Leeds, Alabama .I shoot a Remington 870 with 3 1/2 shells and killed several turkeys over my lifetime and I've shot different choke/shells also. By far this HEVI-Shot is the BEST ever. I've killed 4 birds so far and 3 of them were 50 plus yards. 2 of them were in pasture and the other was in open hardwoods and the birds never ran or nothing, they flopped a little but that was it. I would not have a problem shooting a bird 60 yards with what I shoot.I'm ordering 4 more boxes to put up. GREAT PRODUCT and I will not shoot anything else out of my gun. PERFECTION has finally been reached in turkey loads as far as I'm concerned.

One shot, one kill
After zeroing in my red-dot scope on my turkey gun with "cheap" shells and seeing what that pattern looked like at 50 yards, I pulled out the Hevi-Shot to confirm the zero with the load I was going to hunt with.
There is a noticable difference between this and standard turkey loads. The standard turkey loads tended to have a pattern that was uneven with little groups within the pattern. This load shot perfectly smooth across the entire pattern, which was about the size of a dinner plate at 50 yards using a turkey choke specifically made for heavier-than-lead.
In the field, I bagged a nice gobbler with a 10" beard about 30 yards out and he went down easily. Maybe the cheaper stuff would have done the same thing, but I sure appreciated knowing I was shooting something with a pattern I could trust.

I shot the 3.5 inch Hevi-Shot Magnum Blend through my Browning Maxus and had was really impressed with the performance. Patterning the gun I had 25-30 pellets in the head and neck all the way out to 50 yds with the Hevi-Shot Hevi-13 Turkey choke. Pattern was uniform, tight and accurate, and this stuff hits hard! A little hard on the shoulder, but you won't be complaining about it when you're picking up that Tom you just piled up. Any gobblers within 65yds are in trouble.

Best shell ever used
I have hunted most of my life ( 50 years) and the three inch Magnum Blend is the best turkey load I've ever used. I tested these shells at the range at forty and fifty yards and put 24 pellets in the kill zone at forty and 17 pellets in the kill zone at fifty. I was using a 870 pump with a twenty inch barrel and a hevy shot choke tube. The guys at the range couldn't believe that kind of performance at those ranges with that short barrel! The proof however was in the target to see. I actually believe that this setup will kill a gobbler further than fifty although I probably won't risk shooting any further than that since I don't want an injured bird escaping to die a slow death later. Use the best choke you have with these shells ( I highly recommend the heavy shot choke tube) and you won't be disappointed with this load.
