They are junk, plain and simple. Have any patterning results?

they would be hard pressed to be a good tree rat load, certainly don't need to be shooting them at turkeys
it's not the harvest,it's the chase

I wonder if they actually tested those loads after they ran a batch.  They are just about plain awful.

I'm an HTL guy and would never buy anything lead.  However, I recently traveled out of state to hunt with a friend, I used one of his guns and all he had was this Hornady #6.  I killed 3 birds over a few days... approx 18, 35, and 40 yards... all the three birds dropped in their tracks with only one shot each.
I would personally never buy this ammo... but it had me thinking..

No disrespect but I've been doing this a long time, never shot them w anything but lead. Not hornadys, they stink but as you saw lots of birds die from lead shot.
I just recently started toying w mag blends n they're decent and prob more decently priced than others but all that's in my vest for the opener, a week away, is lead

non taken. You can shoot them with a sling shot if that's what you want. But for my guns... nothing but HEVI or HTL #7 in a nice little 20ga package.

Never could get a good pattern out of the Hornadys.
