I’ve been shooting HEVI-18 for the last few years. Its performance and lethality past 40 yards is very impressive!
As a turkey hunter, being mobile is key to success. And I prefer lightweight equipment because I put a lot of miles into a hunt. The last several years I’ve shot a 20-gauge for that reason.
I was very excited when HEVI-Shot released the new HEVI-18 in 28-gauge!
When patterning this load, I was very impressed with the pellet count at 40 and 50 yards. It wasn’t much different than my 20-gauge pattern, and the recoil was significantly less.
I’ll definitely be using a 28-gauge this season. With its pattern on paper being so good, I can’t wait to try it on a bird.

NEW Sub-Gauge Turkey Loads
With the growing popularity of sub-gauge across the hunting realm, we are proud to introduce our new 28ga 3” shotshells in HEVI-18 and our venerable Magnum Blend line! Hunters like Tony Vandemore have been switching to sub-gauge left and right, and it’s easy to see why. “I originally went to a 20-gauge primarily for turkey hunting. It was smaller, lighter, and easier to pack around all day long,” said Vandemore, who hasn’t shot a turkey with a 12-gauge in over a decade.
