For shotgun hunting loads, it’s the year the year of Tungsten. The lighter metal makes for higher pellet counts that hit harder and at greater distances than both steel and lead. Now, Kent is making a new move to take full advantage of the tungsten edge with their new TK7 Penetrator turkey loads.

The “7” represents an obscene dose of #7 tunsten pellets moving at 1,100 FPS. For those curious about the math, that’s 60 percent more shot than an equal lead load. Two options are available, both three-inch, in either 12- or 20-gauge. The five-round boxes are pricey, but they’ll put a trophy tom down like nobody’s business.
