Browning Gold Hunter 3 1/2 with an Indian Creek Tube. Use Hevi Magnum blend for the kill shot and kent 7 shot to follow.

why do you need a follow up shot if you have a kill shot? also if you did by chance miss why would you want crappier ammo as the 2nd shot rather then the good ammo you used to pattern with??


I never understood the "cheaper" ammo as the follow up.

Had to chuckle right there REN...agree 100%. Reminded me of a bird I called in for a guy years ago in the lowcountry of SC. I told him he really needed to pattern his gun with the right shells before we went but he swore up and down that, "With these'here Kent shells if it flies, it dies."

22 yards away that bird stood when he pulled the trigger and that gobbler flew off just as fast and strong as any I've ever laid eyes upon. He proceeded to throw every last one of those Kent shells into a slough...all I could do was shake my head and chuckle.

HA, I will shoot kent at ducks but id rather throw a rock then use their turkey shells lol


My point is you put a lot of money and time into patterning your gun with the HEVI shot....if by chance you miss why would you not shoot a 2nd shot with the best ammo you have AND use the ammo that puts out the best pattern/downrange power?

I know plenty of guys that use the "follow up with #4's" logic but i truly never understood why you would not want to use the best stuff at all times.

Easy enough. Who has never missed a turkey? Not ONE serious turkey hunter that I know of.

Good question and I see where you are coming from. I shoot Nitros as my first shot and follow up with MagBlends as my subsequent shots if need be (rare, but it happens). While a little cheaper, I do not consider the MagBlends to be much inferior overall to the Nitros. I have patterned both and both are wicked out of my setup. Furthermore, I do it more for the fact that I cannot stomach buying more than one box of Nitros at a time and loading them up KNOWING that if I have to take a follow up shot that it will be lower probability of me connecting (as he is fleeing in a hastily manner), thus the thought of burning a "cheaper" MagBlend shell or two is better than burning one to two "made in heaven" Nitros. While I know the savings in cost is nothing to write home about, it is just the approach I have taken since I started shooting the "made in heaven" Nitros. My savings over time is negligible at best, so it is more a matter of principle than anything else for me.

Another thing is I cherish my Nitros more if you will, mainly because I have been so impressed with them, and furthermore because I could see them going out of business before I could see Environ-Metal Inc folding. At the end of the day, I just try my best to save my Nitros for my highest percentage kill shot, hopefully my first and only shot, but that's not always the case.
