Yeah, itís getting crazy. I sort of want to test a box to see where the hype/performance matrix meets, but have a hard time seeing myself committing to anything that pricey for anything but fun/test shooting unless the lethality leap were insane.
As it is, my 12 GA serves as a waterfowl/deer and turkey gun. In that spec, Iíve killed gobblers with premium lead loads in #6 (LongBeard XR) at 50+ yards, so itís a hard sell for me to cough up much more per shell. If I ever get a dedicated 20 GA that benefits from small, dense shot, my tune might change.
