Anyone here have any experience with Turkish slugs (Sterling brand), or Italian 00buckshot (Nobelsport brand)? Had to snatch up some of each when I saw the price (70 and 80 cents per shell respectively). Hope it doesn't wind up being junk. Both seem to get decent reviews.

No experience with either brand. Have used Fiocchi (Italian) shotgun shells before with no problems.
Never saw any Turkish shotgun shells anywhere around here.
It should be fine. Try some of it out and see.

I did pick up a box of Venom (Turkish) 115gr target ammo in 9mm, and after reading some reviews decided to drop all 50 rounds into the chambers on two separate 9mm barrels, had one round out of the box of 50 that the brass was definitely not sized right and wouldn't chamber in either barrel. I shot up about half of the rest of the box and it's loaded like NATO ammo in the states, a little bit hotter, which doesn't bother me, but I'm not going to buy any more of this stuff when Remington, CCI, Federal, and Norma are all available at the same store for the same price and I've never had a problem with any of them. The Norma stuff seems a little hotter than the Vista Outdoors (CCI/Blazer, Federal, and now Remington apparently) target ammo, but they're all fine for shooting paper.

Maybe one of the other members has some experience with the brands you mentioned and will chime in.

I haven't used Turkish ammo, but I've been impressed with Turkish shotguns. Smooth actions, nice fit and finish. I'm guessing the metallurgy isn't as good as Euro/American made. About on par with Brazilian, I'm thinking.

I am madly in love with Turkish firearms and have been for the last 3yrs. I'll put Canik pistols up against and other striker fired brand out there.

I've heard good things about some of the shotguns made in Turkey, but haven't had my hands on one. Not really in the market for any more shotguns since I already have enough shotguns -- to the extent that anyone can ever have enough of any kind of guns anyway :cool:.
I often carry a Canik and wouldn't hesitate to buy another one. I was carrying an XDM for a while and it's a nice reliable piece, but not the easiest thing to conceal in the summertime. After getting so used to the trigger on the Canik (which is very easy to fall in love with), it's just become my default carry gun. I put a RDS on it and it's crazy accurate. I never feel under-gunned and have total confidence in it, but I do wish Century or whoever is in charge of keeping parts available would keep a better supply of spare magazines available; it came with 2, I bought one extra one when I bought the gun, and haven't been able to find any more since. I like to keep a few loaded up like Pez dispensers just in case, so I always like to have at least 5 or 6 magazines for every semi auto I have. Great thing about a Glock is you can walk into any gun store and find racks full of magazines for them (there's other great things about them too). Century/Canik needs to get this magazine availability shit straightened out.
