That’s hilarious
I might have to get a box of each for laughs.

That is very funny indeed. Must have a terrible Drone problem in Turkey? Note that they have covered all the bases with >>Fixed Wing<< as well as >>Rotor<<.

Appears to me like the shotshell makers in Turkey have their act together and are living in and understanding the real world and times we live in; and not only that understand marketing and packaging strategies.

I remember 3-4 years back when a drone was shot down by someone when said drone was dispatched and guided to fly over a live pigeon shoot in South Carolina(near where Chris Batha lives) and video the shooting apparently for certain individuals who were opposed to such a shoot.

I seem to recall the drone shooter (drone downer "DD"--- maybe a new marketing term by the shotshell industry) was fined, but that would have been pocket change to a live pigeon shooter.

That shoot is held less than an hour across the river from me aways, Stephen. The shooters were not fined. They were told by the owner to take it out, as it was an invasion of his privacy (private property). The local law enforcement was in full agreement. The drone was owned by animal rights activists. Hasn't happened again, either. Before the drone incident we saw a helicopter hovering over the shoot, with a cameraman hanging out the side door filming. One call to Columbia (the state capitol) soon had that airframe gone. Neither of these types of occurrences have ever happened again.

Might be dated advice, but, my Dad always believed if you wouldn’t drink a countries water, you shouldn’t load their ammunition.

I’ve never had a drink of Turkish water, nor fired any of their ammunition. But then, Federal Cartridge is right up the road.
I would be willing to bet few have ever seen these, much less had a chance to load and shoot them. But, living in the same county as Federal is a good thing.

I’ve gotten sone Federal handgun ammo as seconds; great stuff.
The process for determining seconds is such that getting a misfire in the lot is nearly nonexistent .
I had a friend years ago with family who worked at CCI.
He literally had a truckload of .22 LR in his house.

I lived in Turkey for a year and they had good ammo.
Most of it was 50 an 60s style of manufacturing with
fiber wads, but good ammo

p.s. I did drink the water smile

The Federal seconds ammo I get usually fails on inconsistent color on the hulls, or stains or marks on the brass.

There is nothing second about the downrange performance. That stuff doesn’t get out of the building.

Lucky because of where you live. Can you buy those shells now after/during Covid, Ted? How much a box?
