Which are you using next spring? Myself I'm sticking with "old fashioned" lead loads.

Hevi Shot Mag Blend. Haven't found anything that hits harder or kills them any quicker.

3 1/2" Nitro Company Shotshells (4 X 5 X 7 hevishot)
or 3 1/2" Hevishot Mag Blends (4 X 5 X 7 hevishot)
I'll never go back to lead loads, except copper plated #4 shot for fox.

Winchester Supreme 3" size 6 shot, Hastings .655 extended and ported choke, Benelli M1 Super 90.
Been using this combo Spring and Fall for over 15 years and I see no need to change what has worked so well for that long!

Lead.

I have yet to find a turkey ANYWHERE within a reasonable distance in front of ANY of my turkey guns that could withstand a good old fashioned Winchester Supreme #6 lead shotshell being lit in his direction.

My sentiments exactly. IMO they are the best lead loads on the market. I really like the High Velocity loads. IMO no reason to use HTL.

HTL 20 ga..3" Great dense patterns, quick kills, fun to shoot, light to carry and extremely effective.....4 years of testing and hunting with HTL.
