I'd pay $10 for every gobbler i shoot. Most manufactures have rebates throughout the year so you wouldn't pay that much if you shopped around.

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.

What shells are you buying for $10 per shell. TSS is pretty expensive and seems what alot of guys are using and it is $6 per shell. Granted that is pretty pricey too.

I'm not a turkey hunter by any means, haven't gone in years in fact. However the last bird I killed was 47yards with a 12ga 2 3/4" #4 copper plated lead shot out of a standard full choke.

I’m all for new technology and all, but the whole idea of turkey hunting is to get them in close (under 30 yards). Granted that doesn’t always happen but these ammo manufacturers marketing their shells to kill turkeys at 70+ is getting a bit ridiculous.

Same thing with decoys. These Avian X decoys look great but if a gobbler is in the mood, he will run into anything that even remotely looks like a turkey. Those old Flambeau foam jobs did the trick for years...

It reminds me of the Drury Brothers. Mark gained notoriety by winning turkey calling contests and then starting his own call company. He is a world champion caller and should be able to pull gobblers in on a string, yet he endorses shells that will kill birds beyond 60 yards and realistic but expensive decoys. I was actually shocked when they posted a video to their Facebook page of a turkey strutting for some pink yard flamingos. Like I said, if he’s in the mood, he’ll come into anything...

I shot a turkey a few years ago in archery season /Fall turkey season used a $10 broad head on a $9 arrow with a $8 lighted Noc. The $10 shotgun shells sound pretty reasonable .
PS i shot a turkey last Saturyday at 40 with the #9 Tss worth every penny .
