Adding a much-needed element of flexibility to the turkey gun, the Reaper Magnum has a hunter covered no matter a tom’s range.
Just out of range, it’s every turkey hunter’s nightmare. Hard work and hours of patience blown, all because Mr. Tom’s sixth sense about 2-ounces of fury waiting to hit his head like the second coming. There is little bright side to this galling conundrum, except the innovation it has spurred.
We live in the golden age of turkey loads, with high-tech shot and cutting-edge materials extending a hunter’s effective range to epic proportions. Once the stuff of tailgate tall tales, a gobbler at 50-yards today is a can of corn. As is typical, this solution has spawned other problems. Chiefly, what’s a hunter to do with his close game? Designed to shoot insanely tight patterns, modern loads make a 10-yard shot akin to hitting a baseball with another baseball.

Purpose designed to take the big birds, the over-under frees a hunter to mix and match load and choke combinations so they have every range covered.

Lightning-fast barrel selector, convenient Picatinny optics rail, maneuverable 26-inch barrels and light polymer stock, the Reaper Magnum is decked to get you into the woods and a Tom out.
