This turkey-specific shotgun comes dressed in Mossy Oak Obsession and features a cantilever optic mount, a chrome-plated chamber and bore, and adjustable rifle-style sights with a Truglo fiber-optic front sight. It has a 24-inch barrel and an Invector-Plus extra-full turkey extended choke tube, and uses back-bored technology and Winchester’s Active Valve operating system. Its Drop-Out Trigger Group allows easy cleaning, and the Quadra-Vent Ports vent excess gases for cleaner operation. A portion of the sale of each NWTF turkey gun goes to the National Wild Turkey Federation. winchesterguns.com
Federal Heavyweight TSS
These shotshells provide the highest pellet count possible with impressive downrange energy. The density of the tungsten-alloy shot is 22 percent higher than standard tungsten and 56 percent denser than lead. With the rear-braking Flitecontrol Flex wad, the shells perform well through ported and nonported chokes. Available in .410 loads of No. 9 shot, 20-gauge loads of No. 7 or No. 9 shot, and 3- or 3-1/2-inch 12-gauge loads of No. 7 or No. 9 shot. federalpremium.com
Truglo Head Banger Long-Range Turkey Choke Tube
This CNC-machined tube uses multi-phase groove technology that engages the shot cup and guides pellets into tight, consistent patterns. It’s heat-treated for increased strength and durability with powerful turkey loads, and its polished end face provides better seating and sealing, offering maximum power without pressure loss. The tubes are rated for Hevi-Shot, Winchester Long Beard XR, Federal Premium 3rd Degree and other premium turkey loads. truglo.com
