LG outdoors still has some. I think Cabelas still has some 3.5" and Bass Pro had some 3". I've got 5 boxes of 3.5" on the way and 2 boxes of 3".

I ordered some 3" #5's from these guys (LG Outdoors) on Wednesday. Had them in stock and UPS just dropped them off at my office today.

Gwinnett BPS has had them the past two times I was in there, my buddy bought some from there Monday I am ready to see what all the hype is about!

Who wants to kill one a 70 yards anyways!!!! the goal is to get them close right?

Lead shot over about 40 -45 is sketchy in my opinion regardless of what the mfg. claims are.

I ordered some 3" #5 Longbeards from Bass Pro supposed to be here Monday you should be able to order some from them online.
I am an old school lead hunter and if you sit still do your part and call a bird into ethical range I have never had issues. LOL, cannot bring myself to pay $6 a round when they are just as DEAD with LEAD.
Hope everybody has a good season with your lead or your Hevi Shot!!

Question from a Real turkey hunter. Why would you want to shoot a turkey at 70 yards?I want them 20 or less before I pull the trigger. To me that's the funniest part trying to call them to my lap.

They are a 40 yard shell all day long. I think it has a 8 to 10 yard safety net BUT THAT IS ALL. Now that is just what I feel. Now will it kill paper at 60 yes but I HOPE no one tries a bird.

Thanks for all the replies, I found them at Gander Mountain in Valdosta. I did not mean to start a debate on killing yardage, I just wanted to buy some. Good luck to everyone this spring !!!
