I've been using up my old lead shot for my 10 ga. 3 1/2" shells loaded with BB shot. I haven't lost a turkey yet and with the rate that I am going I'll run out of these shells in about another couple hundred years. lol

Now if I drag out my 12ga I'll use 3" mag shells with #2 lead shot which I have a lot of also.
