    Shot Size for Turkey - 20ga and 12ga

    Curious to see what everyone uses for shot size on turkey.

    I shoot a 20ga typically for snowshoe hare i use #4 and all grouse i use #6.

    Would #4 on the 20ga or 12 ga work for turkey or is a larger load better.

    I would probably use 4s if taking head shots. I use 7 1/2s with my 20 ga. for grouse, though.

    The thing to do is see how your gun patterns with different chokes, shot and ranges I personally like # 2s but then that's what my scattergun(SA08 20) shoots best. Good luck have fun
