The new 20 gauge addition to the Heavy Magnum® Turkey ammunition lineup gives turkey hunters even more options. The three-inch, 20 gauge option is loaded with 13⁄8 ounces of #5 nickel-plated lead shot. The three-inch, 12 gauge option features 1½ ounces of either #4, #5, or #6 nickel plated lead shot. Shot deformation is minimized, thanks to the thickest nickel-plating in the industry, which reduces fliers and keeps more pellets on target for dense patterns.
The Versatite® wad does the patterning, and typically patterns best with an improved cylinder or modified choke. The wad strips cleanly from the pellets in flight without disrupting them, resulting in a shorter shot string that delivers more collective energy on impact. At 1300 feet per second for the 12 gauge load, and 1200 feet per second for the 20 gauge load, Heavy Magnum® Turkey ammunition allows hunters to achieve lethal results out to 50 yards.
