I have always loaded just for clay targets until now. I want to experiment with loading my own turkey loads. I have always favored the copper plated lead shot with the buffer stuff inside with the shot. Like the Rem. Nitro-Mags. I use an old Model 12 Winchester 12 gauge that shoots 2 3/4inch shells ONLY. Do any of you have a pet load that you use for this length of shell? Thanks for any info that you might have.

It never gets old loading your own, you can be very specific in what you put in them versus off the shelf stuff done in mass quantities... Hopefully one day ill be able to get into loading shotshells, i hate relying on going to the store and hoping they got what i want.. as ususally they dont got what i want.

Thanks Rocko for pointing out my mis-typing. I corrected it. Any input on the correct length of shells now?

I never loaded turkey loads, I never shot enough of them to need to. My favorite 2 3/4" load was the now discontinued Remington Duplex BBx4s, but they aren't legal to use now. I still have about 20 each of the 2 3/4" and 3", stashed away, dang the luck! Best rompin' stompin' loads I ever used. I guess I can use them for fox and coyotes, but haven't done so yet.

Yea Glen, I had bought a box of those duplex loads myself. Mine were #2 and #5. All you needed was one #2 in the neck and he was done for. I have them stashed away somewhere too. I did load up a few shells for my last preserve hunt for quail and pheasants. They were #6 and #7 1/2 together in the same shell 50/50. It seemed to do the trick with my little 20ga. 1100 LT. I love that little gun with the 21 inch barrel. Sweet!

I still cant delieve they quit making the duplexes. I shot the 4x6 s and loved them But now i have went to the remington nitros in #5 3" they seem to do the trick. But i would sure like to find some more 4x6 s .
