I just picked up a box of kent ultimant diamond turkey shells today. The guy at the shop swears they are the best. Has anyone ever used these?

I got decent 40 yd patterns out of them. The nickel plated lead in those loads are probably the hardest lead I have found

Spectra Shot is nickle coated too I think.

I wouldnt say they are the best, maybe out of certain guns/chokes they might work better than others.

If you got a good price on them and they shoot well I say cool. I once shot the target loads and they gummed up my receiver really bad, so I will not shoot them anymore.

I don't understand how a Kent shell gummed up your receiver, they are not buffered

Kent ammo and I will be blunt and to the point, sucks. Probably the worst shooting ammo for turkeys made. That's why it is so cheap. Yes it will killa turkey at 30 and 35yds. But 40yd patterns are just not very good at all.

I am almost positive they were Kents I had the problem with, but now you have me second guessing myself. I will see if I still have some loose in my bin and check.
