    I maybe an old school guy but I've used Winchester XX 2 1/4oz loads for ten years or more. I can kill em at 10yds as well as 65+ yards. That's with an 870 SurperMag 3 1/2" shell with a KICKS gobbling thunder choke and, my 15yo son has killed 3 with it the last two springs with it as well. I can't say that I haven't missed with this combo but I'll have to admit, it was never the guns fault

    I purchased three boxes of Federal 3.5" premium mag 12ga. with #6 lead shot many, many years ago. Ten shells per box.

    I'm picky and pretty lucky...just one shot per turkey, per year. Like them in close. Still have a box+ left.

    I really never bought in to the heavy shot craze. Good ol Lead has treated me well for 30+ years of turkey hunting.

    When these boxes are gone, I'll probably get some more #6 3.5" lead shotgun shells.

    I shoot whatever 3" #5 turkey loads Walmart has on sale typically. I have taken several turkeys with #5 pheasant loads.

    870 26" barrel, Hevi-Shot choke, 3" Hevi-Shot #5 blend, 2oz. Very comfortably puts gobbler feet in the air past 50 yards, that's the Spring turkey sniper setup though. When I am in the woods during Fall turkey, I am usually there either checking cameras or maybe small game hunting with my old school 16ga loaded with #6. That 16 has dropped many birds during the Fall.

    I see Hevi-Shot has a new line out called Triple Beard. Anyone try this stuff out yet?
