    Fair point. As long as we're on the topic, do you have any good recommendations for a 20 gauge 2 3/4"?

    You know, it’s funny, I just looked to see what is available and it doesn’t look like anybody makes a 2 3/4” 20 gauge turkey load!

    Are we the only family that plays, "whoever gets the most pellets wins", when eating turkey or pheasant?

    You can find 2 and 3/4 #4 though 6 lots of places. It's typically advertised for pheasant but will work on turkey as long as you keep your shots to closer range.
