Shooting a turkey out to 60 yards is no longer a fantasy with Winchester Long Beard XR Turkey loads.
Shooting a turkey out to 60 yards would seem almost reckless because 4o yards is the standard range limit. With the release of Winchester Long Beard XR Turkey loads, you can now push that range out and bag those toms that would have been just-out-of-reach with previous turkey ammo loads.
Watch as Winchester proves their claim in this demonstration video, patterning lethal spreads out to 60 yards.
The ability to take turkey down out to 60 yards is a game changer. Previously I would never have attempted a shot past 40 yards, and in most cases would try to get a turkey within 20 yards. What often would happen is the best birds would hold up outside of 40 yards, strutting, but not coming into the kill radius.
With Winchester Long Beard XR Turkey Loads, I can now pace out to 60 yards, back off about 10, and place a decoy at 30 yards. This will provide a visual range queue to let me know that the turkey is well within my kill radius.
Much like I wrote about my review of Winchester Blind Side Ammunition for waterfowl hunting, Long Beard XR will let you reach out farther and decreases your chances of wounded or fleeing birds. Best of luck this spring for your much-anticipated turkey hunt.
