Ultimate Turkey Ammo Review. Lead, Heavy Shot, and TSS
« on: April 08, 2018, 11:14:13 PM »
I spent a few dollars acquiring numerous types of turkey loads to try out in various situations this year. Tonight I stumbled onto this video, it offers some good comparisons of premium turkey loads.

Hey Dale,

I've been hearing lately that you shouldn't use an EF choke with Hevi Shot Magnums.  Is that true? 

Thanks for posting this video, very cool!

It's hard to believe the video is 24 minutes long.  I watched it and it was over quickly.

Great video showing the importance of knowing what your gun can and will do at certain ranges. The biggest thing I preach when chatting with people bout Turkey hunting.

I've always heard that hard shot should be shot with suitable chokes or you risk damage. Some of the newer loads seem to be claiming they use wads that allow their loads to be shot in standard chokes, but I'm leery of that. A common opinion is to check with the manufacturer of your choke tube/gun to verify what you can safely shoot without causing damage. Quite a few hunters have damaged guns by shooting steel or other hard loads in guns/chokes only suited for lead loads. Here are some articles on chokes for various types of ammo:
