My son was accepted for a youth turkey hunt in Aprial. He got a new Rossi 20 ga single barrol break over for Christmas and this is what he will hunt with.
I know absolutely nothing about scatter guns or bird hunting at all, but thought I should be looking for ammo early.
Wally World had nothing but target rounds so I went to the only other store in town that sells guns and ammo. I have a friend who is the sporting goods manager. I spoke with him and they are down to steel shot waterfowl loads, whitch he says are not appropriate for Turkey. He states that he should be getting a big shipment of ammo at the end of the week or beganing of the next week.
I had my son call yesterday to see if the ammo order came in, and did they get any turkey loads in. He sayed he had ammo for turkey. ( different employee older contrary fello but knows his stuff about guns and ammo) so we went down there and bought two boxes of the ammo he handed me without looking it over (I have gon on his suggestions several times and trust his opinion). When I got home I found that I had the exact ammo that James sayed was not appropriate.
We got Estate high velocity magnem steel shot / 20 ga 3" 1 oz 4 shot. Is this appropriate ammo, or do I save it for next duck season and get him some turkey loads?
I got the feeling he sold the sucker what he had, if that is the case I will not trust him again!!!!
