Short story. I have been turkey hunting since 2002. Up until last year my dad and I had been shooting winchester supremes 3" #5 shot. I shoot a franchi 612 and he a benelli m1. Had never had a problem killing birds. The supremes slammed them out to 50 yards, but the patternes were never real tight. A friend of mine, who was a 1st year turkey hunter showed up when we went to pattern the guns with these nitro turkey loads. He is shooting a franchi I-12. At 20 yards, the 8" shoot n see target turned almost completely yellow. Wow! We backed to 30 same result. Tightest pattern i've ever seen. At 40, a little wider but still tigher than the supremes, So my dad and I borrowed some of his loads and had the exact same results in our guns. We are all shooting H.S. undertaker turkey chokes as well. The supremes treated us well, but the nitro turkey loads pattern tighter, out of our guns, and are a little softer on the shoulder. Every gun can be different so try different loads, but these are a winner in 3 guns. I shot 2 birds last year, dad shot one, and the friend didn't connect, but all the birds were at 25-30 yards and none took another step after the trigger was pulled. Overall great load, and cheaper than most other turkey loads. They will be in my gun from now on.
