Turkey Shoot Shotgun Shells

We have let you know about our 6X6 targets, how to set the point of aim, see the pattern movement, and get your gun’s maximimun shot load on target. On average the #9 shells have about 660 pellets, a plastic wad shot cup, that makes up the difference in the 12 gauge shell length and 2-3/4 grams of powder to push the shot load. The 2-2-10's have 2 grams of powder, 2 ounces of #10 size shot and no shot protector, only a plastic or fiber wad to compensate for the gun’s shell length.

Most shoots buy the cheapest of everything, prizes, shells and targets. We have kept our prices for the 6X6 targets as low as you can go and we get them to you on time. Turkey shoot target ordering.

Winchester AA gun shot gun shells Winchester AA’s shells have the cap, powder, and a pedestal attached to the cup pushing the plastic shot protector. The shell is marked AA 1-1/8 9 LIGHT. We opened up 5 shells and noticed a different powder color from the other shells. The powder appeared lighter and clumped. Some of the shot was pushed down outside one of the shot cup pedals. Without testing we think this would make for a bad day turkey shooting.

Wagner 2-2-10 shells have the cap, powder, and a fiber wad with NO shot protector cup. All shooters enjoy the 10 shoots. If your gun is patterned for this shell at your Turkey Shoot’s distance, most any gun can WIN. It does help to have a professional build you a completive barrel. A pro can make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear with a little barrel and chamber work. Sometimes even an old stock gun shoots these shells great.

The 10 barrels do not have wad stoppers. 57 - 60 feet is the best distance for this shell. It will blow a knock out hole on our ¼” Red Dot Targets. Your gun may shoot 10’s great but without wad stoppers they will not handle 9’s competively.
