HEVI-Shot Magnum Blend Turkey Load Shotshells
Hevi shot Hevi-13 magnum blend
Remington 870 Super Mag. 12 ga. shooting 3.5 inch Hevi-13 Magnum Blend at 40 yrds.
Rem. Trky Super Full 0.665 choke: CV=9 pellets, 10" circle=72 pellets
Primos 0.665 choke: CV=9 pellets, 10" circle=119 pellets
Hevi Shot Trky choke 0.662 w/2 ingraved rings inside to slow wad: CV=15 pellets, 10" cirle=162
Same gun with same Hevi Shot Trky choke but shooting 3.5" Win. Supreme Elite #6's: CV=9, 10" circle=91
These were shot at turkey targets and the 10" circle was centered on the turkeys neck not the densest part of the pattern. These were not averages or the best of numerous attempts just one shot. I can't afford to put a box of shells through each choke. I have been hunting with the Rem. Trky Super Full 0.665 choke and Win. Supreme elite #6's for years and have killed numerous birds at embarsing distances. The recent ammunition shortage caused me try the Hevi-13. I haven't tried them on a bird yet but the patterns look promising.

I am using 3 inch 5,6,7 hevi-shot thru a sbe and diamond creek choke. Took a tom out @ 45 yards flat out smoke him bird never moved. A little pricey but confidence is worth it.

Best turkey load of rem 870
carlson ported turkey choke + rem 870 + hevi shot mag blend 3 inch = dead turkey at 50 plus yards.
very expensive but well worth it.

Def would reccomend
I used the 3.5" shells this past turkey season and was amazed with the range on them. I had two gobblers come in to 45yards and they were hanging up just outside my decoys. So I held my sight on the head of one and it dropped. I mean stone cold dead drop. Usually they flap around for 10mins but this one was DEAD! Then I took my gf out for a big tom that we had seen numerous times in a area but we didnt know where he was gonna come out. Well came out at 58yards and I told her to aim right on his eyeball. So she let it fly and it dropped. I have no doubt in my mind of shooting these shells well beyond 40yards. PROVEN! Also just a plain full choke. No special choke.
