Turkey Thunder on a Budget: Affordable Ammo for Your Next Hunt

Turkey hunting enthusiasts know that having the right ammunition can significantly impact their success in the field. At Fort Thompson Sporting Goods, we're passionate about helping hunters find the perfect gear without breaking the bank. Today, we're excited to highlight two standout products from Winchester's Long Beard XR series that offer exceptional performance at an affordable price point.


Winchester Ammo Long Beard XR Shot-Lok Turkey 12 Gauge 3.5" 2 oz #5 Shot

Let's start with the Winchester Long Beard XR Shot-Lok Turkey ammo in 12 gauge 3.5" with a 2 oz load and #5 shot size. This ammunition is specifically engineered for turkey hunting, featuring Winchester's innovative Shot-Lok technology. The Shot-Lok design ensures that the pellets stay in place within the shell until they are fired, resulting in tighter patterns and improved downrange energy.

What sets this load apart is its versatility. The #5 shot size balances pellet count and size, making it suitable for a wide range of turkey hunting scenarios. Whether you're targeting gobblers in dense brush or taking long shots across open fields, the Long Beard XR Shot-Lok Turkey ammo delivers reliable performance with every shot.


Winchester Long Beard XR Turkey Load STLB12LM4 12G 3.5"

Our other budget ammo we love is the Winchester Long Beard XR Turkey Load in 12 gauge 3.5" with a 4 shot size. This load is designed for maximum penetration and knockdown power, making it ideal for hunters who prefer a heavier shot size. The 3.5" shell provides increased firepower, giving hunters the confidence they need to take down turkeys at extended distances.

What our hunters appreciate about the Long Beard XR Turkey Load is its consistency and reliability. The 4-shot size ensures ample pellet size for effective target impact, while the 3.5" shell delivers the necessary velocity and energy to ensure clean kills. Whether you're a seasoned turkey hunter or just starting, this load is a reliable choice for a successful hunt.

  • Scout Your Hunting Area: Familiarize yourself with the terrain and turkey habits in your hunting area to increase your chances of success.
  • Use Decoys and Calls: Employing realistic decoys and mastering turkey calls can lure gobblers within range for a clean shot.
  • Practice Shot Placement: Aim for vital areas like the head and neck to ensure humane and effective kills.
