The price ain't bad at all considering I shoot Nitros and they are 6 bucks apiece with shipping. I'll give these a whirl as soon as I read your review Split. ;D

I always had one shot success with HeviShot. I like the blended shot. I will get a box of the Remington and see if I notice at the range.

I've been using Winchester Supreme 3 1/2" turkey loads in #5's forever with good success. I may have to give these a try year as they want break the bank.

I too have been shooting the same Winchester 3 1/2" #5's and have had great success with them, but I also am planning on picking up a box of the Longbeard XR to try in my Mossberg. Looking for to giving them a try and see how your test comes out.

I get growing deer TV and on Monday Dr Woods tested these.. link below...so I looked for them...I'm disappointed in Winchester for not considering the number of ppl that use 20ga shot guns to turkey hunt. These do not come in a 3" 20ga shell. Now I don't know if the just plain ole couldn't get a better result in 20 ga over the dbl XX or didn't try to, so I'll be sticking with my Nitro's

In time I suspect they'll get a 20 ga load out there.  #6's in a 3" 20 ga could probably be a pretty good tool - I'm fairly impressed with the pellet counts he's getting in the video with #5's, in theory the 6's should be a little better, although you'd certainly lose a little long-range performance.  Where I typically hunt, even a 40 yard shot is a rarity, and I've tended to stick with 6's to get more pellets in the pattern.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I did not get the Remington ammo. I did get an Indian Creek Black Diamond Strike choke. I will get out to the range soon and see how it works with my Hevi-Shot
