Heavy Magnum Turkey ammunition is loaded with 1.5 ounces of either #4, #5 or #6 nickel plated lead shot. These 3 inch 12 gauge shotshell loads deliver true gobbler knockdown power. Offering the thickest nickel-plating in the industry, shot deformation is minimized, thus reducing fliers and keeping more pellets on target for dense patterns. Featuring the Hornady Versatite wad, these loads don t require shotgun modification, or specialized turkey chokes. The Versatite wad does the patterning, and usually patterns best with an Improved Cylinder or Modified choke. The Versatite wad strips CLEANLY from the pellets in flight without disrupting them this keeps the pellets together in flight for a shorter shot string that delivers more collective energy on impact. By stripping cleanly, the wad doesn't disrupt the pellets in flight so we end up with a very uniform, tight pattern without the help of after market chokes. At 1300 feet per second, Heavy Magnum Turkey loads allow hunters to achieve lethal results out to 50 yards.
