Hornady Heavy Magnum Turkey Shells: A Tight Pattern Without a Special Choke - 3

Packaged in 10-count boxes, these shells feature the Hornady Versatite™ wad, designed to create a tight pattern without special chokes or barrel modifications.

The unique Versatite wad does this by cleanly stripping away from the pellets while in flight, without disrupting them—keeping the pellets together for a shorter shot string and a tighter pattern.

Versatite usually works best with an improved cylinder or modified choke. At 1300 feet per second, Hornady rates the Heavy Magnum Turkey loads as lethal out to 50 yards. Click the link for OL's turkey load test.

MSRP, $18

While new products and product posts are interesting, they really fall on their face when there is no product TESTING. These types of posts appear often on Outdoor Life on-line. Are the comparisons coming in a later print issue, or a forthcoming on-line issue? If so, please inform us of this. Why would an on-line ad for an $18 box of turkey shells make me want to run right out and buy some? Are they clearly better than other shells on the market?
Brian, have you shot or patterned any of these shells?Inquiring minds want to know........

Looks good, but I'll stick with my Winchester ammo. 1-5/8 oz load, 1300 fps, $8.00 a box at Wal-Mart, and a wall of beards, and spurs to show they work.

Hi...

Well, if their propaganda is correct, it should make an excellent turkey load. And, perhaps make it easier to buy a shotgun today.
