Remington® Nitro Turkey™ Extended Range Magnum Shotshells
Good shell, LUCKILY
I bought a few boxes of these just because they were cheap, I use federals mostly and these are 1/4 the price. So I pop a couple in my vest to pattern after the hunt, and out I go. Well don't 2 birds come into view just as my buddy and I are setting up. I reach in my vest and don't I pull one of these out!! So I call the birds to 40 yards and they hang up. The one starts to walk away, so we let them have it. This shell smoked that bird! I still haven't patterned the shell, but it obviously does the job.

Nitro Turkey Load
WOW, I picked these up just cause they were cheap and I wanted to try a #5 load. I patterened these in at 30yds. with my mossberg 500 and a Primos tite wad choke tube and was absolutely blown away by how awesome these patterend and they had the knock down power I was looking. I was shooting #6 loads and they just didn't have that extended range power I was looking but I will never look for another load to shoot....THESE NITRO'S ARE AWESOME!!!!!!

Finally Dialed In
After trying several different loads and three chokes, found the combo my 870 Super Mag likes. Using these shells with # 5's, an Undertaker with .675 constriction, and Bushnell Trophy 1.75 x 4 x 32 scope on top.
Great patterns out to 40 yds.
My barrel wound up liking the tighest choke I could find. Any shot closer than 20yds will take his head clean off. Jelly at 20..

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.
