Fiocchi's 12 Gauge Golden Turkey Shotshells

Hard-Hitting Nickel-Plated Shot Makes The Difference

Successful hunters of the wily and tough wild turkey know that the use of Fiocchi Ammunition's 12 gauge, 3-inch Golden Turkey shotshells give them the edge they need toward having a successful event.

Fiocchi engineers chose nickel-plated shot for these shells as it provides the turkey hunter with denser, more consistent patterns with fewer stray pellets, as well as increased range and deeper penetration than standard, non-plated shot. Fiocchi's nickel-plating helps the shot pellets retain their aerodynamic spherical shape during firing and while passing through the shotgun's choke. Rounder pellets (as opposed to deformed, out-of-round pellets) have truer flight characteristics, making them more accurate.

Fiocchi's nickel-plating process results in rounder pellets that fly through the air with less resistance, resulting in increased velocity at impact. This increased velocity, combined with a resistance to deformation upon impact with game, contributes to deeper penetration. This deeper penetration helps the pellets break more bones and strike vital organs to ensure humane kills and less lost, crippled birds. Fiocchi's 12 gauge Golden Turkey 3-inch shells are a "best available" load utilizing 3.2% nickel-plated lead shot with guaranteed surface hardness and therefore, outstanding patterns.

Fiocchi's 12 gauge Golden Turkey 3-inch shells contain a maximum dram equivalent with 1 3/4 ounces (50 grams) of shot and produce an incredible stinging velocity of 1,325 feet-per-second. Fiocchi has gone to such lengths to ensure that its extra-hard, nickel-plated shot is of such high quality in preventing shot pellet deformation during firing, that the use of a protective shot buffer is actually redundant in Fiocchi Golden Turkey shotshells.
