are some of the supper dooper ammo companys throwin 7.5's in their loads to get more "hits" and using this as a selling point?
Are the 7.5's just ticks on a boar hog after 30yds?
And to go even further...smaller than that...try 8.5 and 9's...The trick is the "more hits" are a big hit with number counters..but... here is the kicker..they kill..don't doubt it. As CBOTR stated HTL changes the rules...Also the fed hw 15gm 7 loads are "ahead of there time" so to speak..I can't tell you how hard it is to convince someone that that 15gm 7 is as deadly as a lead #4 or #5. The pellet weight/velocity/energy on impact charts are available to compare them to lead..As far as the pixie dust loads with the 7,7.5,8,9's from The "N" company...deadly. The 7's do the work even in the 4x5x7 triplex you will find probably 20-40 4's and 5's with the rest being 650+ 7's depending on weight of load. The H-517 is a 3.5" 2-7/16 oz shell. The H-51013 is a 2-1/4 oz shell which I prefer. The H-378i is a 3" 2-1/4 oz shell. They are all different. Cut the same weight shell open and you'll get different counts from one shell to the next. 30 yds don't even touch what those shells will kill a turkey at..ex.My longest shot was on the open prairie last year over 50yds with the Pixie dust load..not a bush or rock in sight for 300 yds for me to manever any farther..I was 1695 miles from home and didn't think twice..because I knew my guns range.. Stone dead..and I mean game over fast . The other at 15 feet. Boils down to pattern some shells..test them in the field..you will see that they arent hype. I have taken 10 birds in the last 3 years with "N" company 7's and fed 7's combined. 3 over 50 yds..no cripples. Bench time is the key. know your guns and pattern them to perfection..the right choke..sights and shell can really add to your success..Respect your quarry enough to give it your best......Then remember regardless of how well your prepared..it's still turkey huntin and misses, mishaps still come. If you have any questions about which choke or shell to try feel free to ask the seasoned shooters on here..I recognize a few on here from other forums that I know have a lot of knowledge on patterns, chokes, shells, rigs. These fellas take their knowledge serious.
