Giving you the tightest patterns and longest shot capability of any lead turkey load Winchester has ever offered, Long Beard XR Turkey Shotshells deliver deadlier performance at longer ranges. Putting twice the pellets in a 10" circle than comparable turkey loads out to 60 yards, Long Beard XR shells feature Shot-Lok technology to deliver devastating terminal on-target performance shot after shot. Shot-Lok shells encase every pellet in a hardened resin to prevent pellet deformation during acceleration through the barrel. Avoiding any deformation, the pellets remain round to fly straighter and tighter for highly consistent payloads and devastating knockdown at longer ranges. A game changer for hardcore turkey hunters, Long Beard XR shells give you heavier-than-lead load performance at a fraction of the cost. 10 rounds per box.Shot-Lok TechnologyShot-Lok loads feature a hardened resin that completely encapsulates the lead pellets. This resin eliminates air space around the pellets, preventing movement, which ultimately leads to virtually no pellet deformation during in-bore acceleration. As the shot is charged, the resin fractures, forming a micro-buffer as the shot pattern leaves the gun barrel. This buffer helps the pellets stay round to fly straighter and tighter, resulting in highly consistent payloads and devastating knockdown at longer ranges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keepemclose Great load, not so great marketing
Turkey hunting is a close-in sport. Telling people to be confident in a 60-70 yard shot on a turkey is asking for trouble. Bass Pro and other companies make good money off camo, calls, and other things we turkey hunters need to get them in close. Sixty to seventy yard shots on turkeys is a bit more like deer hunting. These loads are a great technological advancement to make us better and more lethal turkey hunters.......but only if we keep distances 40 yards and in on our shot selection. We owe it to the animal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonBill Next level turkey loads
I shot Winchester's new Long Beard Turkey Shotshell out at SHOT Show in Nevada back in January.
They are definitely "next level" turkey loads meant for birds that hang up at 50 - 60 yards, maybe a tad further.
I got 22 hits in the kill zone compared to maybe a generous handful with regular turkey loads.
The worst thing I can say about these shells are you'll need optics in order to optimize the performance at long range.
Hats off to Winchester for giving due diligence to the concept of long range turkey shooting.
Which prompts me to ask "can 100 yard turkey loads be that far off ?
