Nope and not even close. The Old remington was not great shell thats why you still see them to this day on shelves. Hevi 13 , you can't even buy in Canada...

If they are the 3.5" Remington Wingmaster HD #6's, I'll take all you got if you want to get rid of them! They don't make them anymore, and in my setup, they pattern unbelievably well. I have 31 shells left, which should last me 8-10 seasons, but I sure wouldn't turn down some more of them!

Hevi 13 3.5" 7's came in a close 2nd to these in patterning for me, but are more expensive and didn't put QUITE as devastating a pattern on paper. I have yet to shoot at a bird with those HD's that lived to gobble about it.

12 or 20ga please? The original Remington® Premier® Hevi•Shot® Magnum Turkey Loads, 12g/cc were "The Stuff" for Turkey hunting. This load in #6 patterns AWESOME in my gun(s).

they are 12ga. my gun patterns very well with them thats not the problem i love the shells. i was just wanting a "smaller gun to use". i get in some pretty tight spots and would like something a lil shorter. i just didnt know if these shells were equal or not.
