As we round the corner of the end of winter and start barreling into spring, it’s time to start sighting up turkeys. Having your shotgun patterned ahead of time with the right ammo can really simplify and streamline your next turkey hunt and that is why it might be a good idea to have some HEVI-Shot HEVI-18 TSS Turkey Loads at your side as you head out in search of your first gobbler of the season.

New HEVI-18 TSS Turkey Loads Launched by HEVI-SHOT
The new loads will be available in the three most popular hunting shotgun cartridges (.410 bore, 20 gauge, and 12 gauge) and in 3-inch and 3.5-inch varieties. Each shell carries a heavy payload of dense tungsten shot pellets that are being spat out at nearly 1,300 fps (for 12 and 20 gauge loads) meaning your shot placement will have superior accuracy even if your target happens to be moving. Like other HEVI-Shot offerings, the HEVI-18 TSS Turkey Loads will use thick-based wads, magnum primers, and clean-burning propellants to give you a reliable hunting cartridge – even in semi-auto shotguns.
- Gauges: 12, 20, .410
- Shell length: 3″, 3 1/2″
- Shot size: 7, 9
- Shells per box: 5
“TSS shot is an excellent option for turkey hunters, and we are excited to feature it in the new HEVI-18 shotshells,” said Scott Turner, HEVI-Shot’s Product Line Manager. “A great benefit of this load is that hunters have an extremely effective .410 option without sacrificing performance. This allows hunters of all ages and sizes to be able to carry a smaller shotgun without having to second guess the shotshell payload or penetrating power.”
