Default Hevi Shot Turkey In a Full Choke Gun

Can you use this load in a full choke shotgun? My Benelli said no steel in Full Chokes. This shotgun doesn't have a screw in choke in 12 Ga. Hevi shot is tungsten which is harder then steel. What do you guys think?

HEVI-Shot® Magnum Blend


H&R Pardner® Shotgun

Pardner® Turkey Gun (with Camo)
Famous for their handiness in the woods and extended-range patterning ability, our Pardner Turkey Gun lineup includes a wide range of options from which to choose. In addition to our 10-gauge model, we offer 12-gauge models in camo with fixed full chokes or screw-in turkey chokes, and a 20-gauge, 22"-barreled compact model with camo-finished hardwood.

I would see what H&R has to say. Phone: (866) 776-9292
Turkey loads are usually fired through a full or extra full choke. Yes, Tungsten IS harder than lead.

I think I will be calling them. I going to do some spring turkey hunting and have to know. I did read the manual and never saw it mentioned anywhere.

I have shot some Hevi Shot through a Hastings turkey choke with no issues. The pattern was not good enough for me to justify buying 5 shells for more than the cost of 10 a pack of Federal Mag Shok. Maybe if I bought one of the Hevi Shot chokes....

Make sure whatever ammo you shoot patterns well, let the bird get within 35 yards and you should be successful. Regardless of what the manufacturers boast about, even with 3.5 inch loads, shots beyond 40 yards are dicey.
