  • Heavier-than-lead load performance at a fraction of the cost
  • Shot-Lok® Technology - increased shot stability for better downrange performance

  • Deeper penetration and devastating knockdown at longer ranges
  • 10 rounds
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 Technology
Shot-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 4.5 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best turkey load I've shot to date After trying Remington and Winchester ammo a few years ago for turkey hunting, I settled on Winchester Supreme #5. Good, but not great. I recently took a chance on a box of the XR in #5 and I couldn't be happier with the results we had at the range this weekend. The shot group was significantly tighter with the XR load. Will stick with this ammo for turkeys from now on. April 22, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 Not worth the money Got these shells for the extra long rang they brag about! Not worth the money. Had to shoot a turkey twice at 50 yrds never had to do that before with a 31/2 Remington Nitro Turkey load. These are twice the price and so not worth it.Lukey for me Im a good runner and chased him down and got another shot. 25 min before had one at 38 yrds spooked and ran shot he flew off too couldnt get second shot on him. These are over rated shot gun shells remington nitro turkey are half the price and do a better job out to 70yrds. I have killed over 35 birds spring and fall and never had anything like this happen. DONT SPEND THE MONEY NOT WORTH IT. April 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by worked as advertised My buddies and I tried the Long Beard XRs the other day and they performed beyond expectations. Good shot pattern out to 50 yards. Great product April 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best turkey load on the market I couldn't believe the patterns I got with this. At 40 yards it was like shooting 20 and 60 yards was like 40. The only load I am going to use from now on. Gonna go drop from first gobbler with it. CAN'T WAIT! April 3, 2014

A: 
Get a box of #4, #5 and #6 and pattern them. One may shoot significantly better than the others. Nobody can tell you how each load will shoot out of your gun/choke combination since they all seem to vary a little.

Go with remington Nitro Turkey in #6 shot or #5 cant go wrong. Unless you can find it in 4x6 mix they are the best Ive ever shot they will get a 3" out to over 50 no problem.

In my opinion I would go with 6 to get more pellets down range.

A: 
I have been using #6 for years and have never lost a bird. They pattern really tight out to 50 yds. and will practically decapitate a bird inside of 30 yds due to the density of the shot pattern. #5 will give you a little more knockdown, but not enough to make a difference if you keep your shots at 40 yds or less. Either one will work fine. Good luck!

Aswallace911 ....go for the #5 shot if you thinking of longer range shots the #5 shot will carry farther than the #6 shot ....if your in thicker closer brush then #6

Id opt for 5's. They hit harder and you will still have more than enough on target at 40.

Number 5's for sure. With number 5's you get the best of all worlds. Good patterns, Knock down power and they will cut through undergrowth when hunting thicker areas. Good luck!

Number 6 lead will kill cleanly at 40 yds all day long. Get a choke with .660 to .665 constriction and you'll be good to go!

Every single guy on the show turkey thugs have 30-40 years hunting turkeys, each. and every single one of them recommend #5s out of shot sizes 4, 5, 6. go watch their videos and they will teach you a thing or two. that's what I go with as well, cheers.

A: 
Definitely go with the heavier shot. More and better penetration when the shot is not ideal.

A: 
I use number 5 shot, think it is the best compromise between the pattern density provided by number 6 shot versus the retained energy of number 4 shot.

Winchester Long Beard ammo will definitely reach out there to 50 - 60 yards, but you'll need optics in order to hit a bird in the head neck area
