Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

I would start with Winchester long beard. I started shooting them and no other shell has compared to them.

I ordered a couple of boxes of Winchester Longbeards in 5 shot. Heard good things about them.

I found these are perfect through my SBE. Only short comings are price point but the results are too impressive to not use them. I patterned at 40 yards which is generally my personal outer limit and can see it would reach out to over 60 without any problem.

Use to shoot Nitro Company shells for years, but their crimps lacked quality control and most of the buffer would leak out.
Switched to the Winchester Long Beards myself and haven't looked back. The cost factor was worth the switch, yet alone the patterning ability of these shells.

I shoot the Magnum blend. With the $10 rebate Hevi Shot puts out each year, the price is not so bad.
