I don't work for Winchester, no offence taken, but then it's nearly impossible to offend charlie. If they shot that tight you might as well use slugs, making them worthless for turkeys.

These were 3". I tried IC because that's what was in my gun to start from shooting the Federal flight control turkey loads last fall. The pattern was spread more than a regular shell. Then I switched to the Carlson Turkey full, which is .665, much better. Perhaps a M or IM would work, didn't have time to try them.
That's interesting, there are some pictures posted by Winchester with 30 pellets in a 10" circle at 60yds. Starting to smell some marketing hype? No matter, all of my turkeys are killed much closer.kygobbler wrote:They had targets that were shot at 60, 66, and 70 yards. IMO, the shot pattern was not very good. It did have about 5 pellets in the kill zone but to me that is still hoping that the magic pellet hits the right spot.
