Default Hevi-shot

im thinking about trying some hevi shot for spring turkey. now im a remington fan and im happy with them, but was just wondering what everyone thought about hevi-shot and is it worth the extra dollars?

I shoot a Remington 870 I have used Hevi-shot with great results! I highly recommend it I had great patterns at 40 yards!I had the best results with theoriginal Hevi-shot, the Hevi-shot-13 was good but not as good.

Iswitched to Nitro 4x5x7 for last season and I had Even tighter patterns at 40 yards! Love the 4x5x7!

Started using Hevi-13's last year in 3.5", #6, 2.25 oz and am happy with the patterns out to 40 yards. Never patterned further than that but don't 'intentionally' plan to shoot further than 40-45 anyway.

I want to know how it penitrates compared to HV loads... No one seems to have any of this info... Who care if it patterns great... I want to know that the pellets in thew great pattern have enough a-- to get the job done

It penetrates more than lead....it is not the end all be all that some people make it to be, but it does penetrate better. Just take you some thin metal set it out at 40 yards and see what penetrates, then repeat at 45, and 50 etc.
I can't remember the exact weights of each right now, but basically #6 Hevi-13 is like shooting #5 lead.

ive shot heavy shot alot for ducks but neverfor turkeys winchest 2-14 oz of 4s was all i use to shoot till they changed there wads used to kill birds at 50-60 yards all the time now i use federal 2-14 oz 4s with the flight control wads they put 15-18 pellets in the kill zone of a turkey target at 55 yards i wont shoot any other size shot but 4s if it wont pattern at 55 yrds i wont shoot it and its deadly on coyotes if you come across any while your out. and its alot cheaper.
