If you’re looking for the ultimate turkey hunting machine, look no further, this muzzleloader is an absolute cannon. This shot was taken at 20 yds while we were at the range yesterday. 2 1/2 ounces of #5 lead shot with 120 grains of Triple 7 does the trick, especially when we’re breaking in newbies. Most of us hunt with 90 to 110 grains of Triple 7 and a duplex load of #4 and #6 lead shot mixed at a 2:1 ratio. There’s a lot of arguments about the effectiveness, or lack thereof, of duplex shot loads, but due to the jug choke inside the TK barrel, it works well with this black powder shotgun where it may not in a traditional turkey gun.
Designed for 40 yards and beyond, our patented jug-choke allows 85% shot density in a 30″ circle at 40 yards. This design allows the shot to expand into the chamber, controls the shot, then directs it into the choke tube for unequaled pattern concentration.
