One of the areas that I have to hunt turkeys in requires the use of nontoxic shot. Hevishot made inroads into the turkey hunting ammunition market because of it's killing ability and the tightness of it's patterns. Most guys don't balk at paying the high prices for these shells, esp. since they are only buying 10 at a time and using maybe but one or two a season.

Does Nice Shot have any plans on doing the same? Is there any data out there using heavy payloads & buffers to increase pattern tightness/efficiency?

I hunt with both 12 & 16 gauge; my current lead loads are 1 1/2 oz in 12 gauge (2 3/4") and 1 1/4 oz in 16 gauge.

Thanks for the interest........

Nice Shot has the 1-3/8 ounce loadings in #2 and #4 for 12 gauge, and 1-1/8 in 16 gauge. I don't really plan on getting into a specialty marketing area that will cost a lot for promotions or advertising, thus causing the prices to go up.

The loads available now will work for turkey. I've taken two greater Canada's this year with my 16 gauge 1-1/8 of #2.

Pattern testing is the key!
