I had a chance to touch the trigger on ONE of these this weekend.<br><br>I tried the 2.25 oz 3" 4,5, & 7.5 triplex load. With my tight turkey choke it did not pattern like the 4x6 load that I currently use and at $2.65 per shell that is one more reason I am not all that interested in changing or shooting them regularly. I bought 5 of them as they sell them by the each in various configurations, 4's, 5's, or 6's in either copper or nickle plated shot and they also put together hevishot in many of the loads. I might try it later on with a more open choke and again check the pattern.<br><br>This was likely one of the most brutal shells I have ever shot. It takes a lot of powder to get 2.25 oz of stuff moving and the shove that it gives back, ouch! Its like a high caliber rifle recoil. <br><br>My hunting partner did take his bird with this load as it patterned well through his set up...and he didnt remember the recoil after he was up and moving towards his flopping turkey.<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href=""></a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--> <p></p><i></i>
