i guess i have been across the Pond too long.... what is this Heavy shot stuff ? i have killed many turkeys with 2 3/4, and 3" and now 3 1/2" wanting more shot for a more dense pattern, so i bought a back bored Moss 835, and have tired a few choke tubes. got all caught up in the Hype, that only seems to spend money. the turkey is just as dead with 2 3/4" #5's as it is with the 3/12" #5's now we have this heavy shot? what is it ? is it lead or steel or what ?
i think since i still have boxes of Winchester Sup #5's i will use them up before i attempt to get caught up with attempting to keep up with the Jones..... i still remember dead is dead... break that neck with shot and it is dead. our forfathers killed many turkeys with old single shot, 36" bbl's and what ever shot they had.... but now we spend millions on the next gaget that is supposed to kill better... OK well... i want to use my crossbow, but alabama won't let me... so my compound will do... my 835 and 870 will do... what happened to using normal lead shot ? call em in close, then kill them.
calling them in close is as much the hunt as killing a bird.
