Be careful with the hevi shot

My benelli states that its lead only. My dad went out and shot a couple birds over the last couple of years without knowing it...but it could have been shitty having a barrel go up on him

Just a clarification: It states Lead only on the choke tube. If you have an aftermarket Xtra Full or Full choke it will be able to handle Hevi Shot. This only applies to Chokes that have marked on them lead only. If this is what you got don't shot hevi shot through them.

Benelli Shotguns are CRIO tech chrome lined and can shot anything. But it is where the thin walled chokes tube systems hardness comes into play with shot choices.

Either way you go. If your can put pellets on target at 30 yards. I would go with what works.:ray1:

I've got one. Haven't been out since.

12ga Hevishot 3.5inch #5 at 30 yards. Boom.

Andrew: you can take two on the East side and one on the West side of the state.

Where do you go out by Chattaroy? Private land? I've been scouting around the eastern side looking for some turkey an a lot of people suggested that the turkey in the east are few and far between, but then others say they are successful.

As far as turkey loads, I knew guys that shot turkey with 2 3/4 number 8's.

But then again I shot my two toms last season, with 10 gauge 3.5, number 5 winchester turkey loads.

So it's really up to you, I would suggest a good turkey load is better though, if you buy a box it will last a few seasons anyways so the price is really spread out over a few seasons.
