- Q & A
Are you ready for a turkey shoot? When Joyce Hornady first said “ten rounds through one hole” decades ago, he could easily have changed it to “1 ½ ounces of #5 nickel-plated lead shot in one dense pattern.” That’s what this Hornady 12 gauge 3” 1 ½ ounce #5 shot is all about; it’s heavy magnum firepower designed to deliver a serious payload in a small area. When you’re out for turkeys, that’s what you want: more shot in a smaller space.
This round has a muzzle velocity of 1,300 feet per second and is designed to keep its tight delivery at a distance of up to 50 yards. It’s also made to do away with the need for special chokes. These Hornady rounds are at their finest performance in an improvised cylinder or modified barrel. And according to Hornady, this is “the thickest nickel-plated shot in the industry.” Basically, if you want to go get a turkey, you want to grab a box of these rounds first.
The greatest feature of these loads is Hornady’s special Versatite wad. The beauty of the Versatite wad is how it strips cleanly from the pellets on its way to your intended target, delivering harder-hitting energy upon impact and giving you nice, uniform patterning. The lead shot inside is also made to resist deforming; all in all, a cleverly designed turkey load meant to give you as much help as possible when it comes to bringing a bird home.
Hornady manufactures all their ammunition at their plant in Nebraska. There are 10 rounds in this box, and that means 10 power-packed opportunities to put your own turkey on the table. Don’t let your family’s favorite meal run away into the woods gobbling because you chose a different load. Buy Hornady’s heavy magnum turkey load; you’ll be glad you did.
