Bummer!! Just purchased a 20 gauge beretta for turkey huntin and was depending on using Hevi-shot
But you got to look at it this way as well.. The girlfriend and I will hit the road this spring for 2 weeks straight.. We might hit 3 states and maybe 4.. Between gas, hotels, meals, licenses, trespass fees we will have somewhere around 4000 dollars into this trip.. Look at the price of ammo, even if it doubles and we come home with 20 turkeys, the load we currently shoot is 3 bucks a piece, that is 60 extra dollars on top of 4000..
Heck even back home with ensuring are loads are sighted in and killing a couple birds as well as maybe a second trip down to another state maybe another 72 dollars.. Or 36 bucks more than we spent before the rise in cost..
With your new gun you can expect to burn 2 boxes say in a two bird state if you do not intend to travel the first year.. Say Fed HW 7s if they went to 6 bucks a piece, use dove loads to get your sighting device on target, burn a few with 2 choke tubes, get your poison and go kill 2 birds.. You have 8 rounds into patterning and 2 into killing for 60 bucks..
The next year burn one to check POI and kill two birds you have 18 dollars into your ammo..
