It’s pretty insane I know but yeah. Get you some 8 or 9 TSS and put a factory full choke in. Only way you don’t kill him within 50 yards is you flat out miss. At 35-40 yards the pattern is ridiculous.
To be fair I didn’t pattern mine. I bought a box of 12 and 20 g. Have shot 1 shell of each. My son and I both laid the hammer down with factory choke at about 40 yards. I videoed my sons. We were in an elevated deer stand. The cloud of dust (showing the pattern) that kicked up behind my son’s turkey was wild.And worth every penny.
I thought this too initially, but realistically how many shots does the average hunter take at a turkey annually? I set aside a handful of days each year to turkey hunt and I kill 1 turkey every couple years. Amortize that out and it’s pretty manageable for most.I’m still not convinced they are worth the $ in a 12g. $5 per shell and I would agree. $10 per shell and I think they are overpriced.
