I'm about drive myself nuts trying to find these in a 3-1/2" load of 2oz #6s. I don't know of they are just that new on the scene and stores aren't carying them yet, or if folks are buying them up as soon they hit the shelves. Remember the old maroon shell with gold letters and TALLbrass from say, 12-15 years ago (2oz in a 3" and 2-1/4oz in the big shell)? Word on the street is that these are reminiscent of the old ones before the Heavyweight shell with a flite control wad (only better).

For being straight lead, folks are reporting stoopid patterns out of many different gun/choke combos. The 3" are a little over a $1 a shell...the 3-1/2" are like $1.25ish (in boxes of 10). If I can find'em and they pattern well...I swear...I'll buy 2 cases and get off this turkey ammo rollercoaster.

Anyone seen/tried these yet?

I don't even shoot lead and I bought a couple of boxes of the 3 1/2 6s yesterday. The pattern pics I have seen have been great so I figured I might as well get some in case I ever run out of hevi 13s, which will probably never happen.

Ive bought everything i need to load my own shells. Im tired of deaking with the never ending changes and hard to find shells, so now i wont have to worry about it hopefully. At least for my long range barrel. But i have also heard great things about the thug ammo. Im going to try to find some 3" 6s to shoot through my bottom barrel.

Well some folks are finding issues with boxes of that ammo.... wet/oily powder .... primer pops and pellets rolling out the end of the barrel.... powder mess in the chamber and action.... Thread was posted on Old Gobbler about it by the person it happened to.

Buyer be aware....

10-4 Griz. Almost always some "gotcha" or too good to be true stories.

Could be a leaky warehouse roof and the pallet of shells got a little wet.... May just have been an isolated incident.... Just giving you a heads up... I thought about trying some myself.... but I got the Winchester and Hevi shells instead.

I believe Wal mart is the only place to get the turkey thugs. I checked one last night and they had a pathetic selection of ammo.

I have gone to 3 Wal-Marts, Bass Pro, and Dick's...nothing. Searched all the online ammo suppliers too.
