Be careful on the bird loads, I can tell you that I missed a #9 shot when cleaning a turkey and about broke a tooth. My daughter found one as well with about the same results.
I was thinking what those very small, very hard projectiles would do to one's tooth...
Discussed on another thread, point was made about steel shot. But it’s bigger and may be easier to spot. Same exposure to an unsuspecting tooth.
I bit down on a Heavyweight 7 about this time last year with a molar that had a filling in it. Hurt like HELL !!! Broke the filling loose, but I didn't know it. It waited til Thanksgiving night to cut loose with the pain.............and hoo boy !!!!! Luckily, my daughter is a hygienist and got me in her boss's back door the next morning.
Gonna start running all my turkey breasts under a metal detector before packaging them. Don't need anymore of THAT schidtt.
