Rated 5 out of 5 by jn007 The Best There Is. PERIOD
It does what it says. It knocks Ol' Tom stone cold dead! This is by far the best Turkey ammo there is. Nothing comes close. It shoots farther and the pattern is second to none.
Yes the price is a little high, but you get what you pay for. I don't mind spending a couple extra bucks for this.

Killed a bird 65 yards out stone dead. 3 1/2 inch with a Wad Wizard Choke. Best Combo ever. I highly recommend them. I know people with 10 gauges who will not shoot that far out. I did with ease with the 12 gauge.

HeviShot makes a turkey choke that is designed to work with their products. The HeviShot turkey tubes come in models that fit most shotguns. I get great patterning results out of my SX3 and Benelli Nova using Hevi tubes.
Only shot one choke with these shells and I've been very impressed with it. Bought Indian Creek Turkey choke and I would hate to know there is a better combination than this.Killed three birds at fifty plus yards.You can try other chokes/shells if you would like but I've found mine and I live to turkey hunt and that is all I study.
As always, Patterning a shotgun for turkey hunting can be a time consuming adventure. I love to pattern new loads and new chokes to try and maximize my effective range. Pick yourself out a few different types of ammunition, and then buy a choke tube or 5. Mark each target with 1.) range 2.) ammunition used and 3.) choke used. this will give you an idea of which loads are going to pattern out of your shotgun / choke combo. have fun! These are great Turkey loads.
I'd say personally a turkey choke. you can get them from bass pro in prolly any gauge you use. I know I myself have one for my Remington 870 Express 20 gauge in 20 gauge, just screws into the end of my barrel and I'm good to go.
These blended loads are unbelievable at 30-40 yard range. But some of us turkey hunters are female ... thus 20 gage ! I hate having to reorder from one of your competitors that stocks these in 20 gage.
If u go to hevi-shots website u can get shells for the 20ga i use the 3" #4s and they work great i can shoot 60 yards and still feel confident that it will be a 1 shot kill i was averageing 5-8 pellets in the kill at 50 and 60 yards this product works great at longer yards.
Melonie, I would call them and ask if they could order them for you. Haven't seen any online but also if you live pretty close I would run by there and see if they have any. Sometimes they have stuff in the store but not online so go by there and check.
There are only 5 shells in a box, and you only get one box for the price shown. These are super-premium shells meant for turkey hunting where you're really only likely to use one shot for one kill, so one box might last you an entire season.
5 Shells per box, One box per price ( around $20 ) These are the top of the line turkey loads! They deserve every penny you spend on them. I would probably buy 2 boxes if i had never used this load before, 5-6 rounds to pattern and 4-5 rounds for hunting. Remember that turkey hunting isnt like shooting clays, hopefully you are only shooting one shell per turkey! Spending a little extra money for increased range and effective energy is money well spent in my books!
The box size looks like 5/box. Yes, that's $4+ per shell, but you are not dove hunting with these things. Deer hunters never hesitate to pay upwards of $2/shot. $4 is absolutely inconsequential in the overall cost of getting a big ol' gobbler home. If you were in a situation where you could legally take a second bird, would you hesitate to shoot because of the price of the shell? Not me! Hevi-shot is the deadliest stuff out there.
