Remington® Nitro Turkey™ Extended Range Magnum Shotshells
Nitro Turkey Loads
this past year i ran out of the good ol Remington magnum heavy-shot #6's as i am a broke college kid i bought these because they were the cheapest box of ten turkey loads Remington offers. I bought them in the 12ga 3in #6's for my 870. after a long hard season i called a bird in at about 25yds and the nitro hit him harder than the Hevi-shot did a year before i was really pleased with its performance. i don't know how it patterns at further distances and is the only reason i gave them a 4 star but i plan on testing them next spring.

No better than the rest
Let me start off by saying this is not a good or bad shell. I used them last week, without success. I missed two Turkeys using a Remington 887 nitro mag, xtra full choke, and these rounds 3.5" #4 shot. Both turkeys I missed were about 55 yards away. So, 55 may be a little far for these rounds. I switched over to a 2 3/4 Winchester super X #4, expecting to take the same shot and had one come in to the 45 yard range, the 2 3/4 Winchester super x dropped him with no problem.
With that being said, Im not sure if these hold a tight enough pattern, or out of my gun, the super x just holds a better pattern. These rounds kick like they have a ton of power..... just didn't make the distance I thought/hoped they would. I know 55 yards is a long shot, but with the combo I had, I thought I had enough shell to get there.
All in all, they are a cheap round. Boom every time you pull the trigger. And, probably well worth the money for 40-45 yards and under shots.

Great Turkey Loads
I just bought 3 boxes of Remington Nitro Turkey 12 ga loads Shot size #4. I haven't hunted with them yet but they pattern great just like other reviewers stated. I look forward to using them on a gobbler this spring.

Good for price
Performs well for the price your paying
Hevi shot & Winchester extended range both pattern better
