In my opinion, you will have a hard time making a turkey hunting reload that will work as well as the factory stuff. Used to be guys would reload TSS for turkey hunting and it worked great. There was no factory source that could duplicate it. Well now, Federal (and I believe 1 or 2 others) are loading TSS factory shells. As for shells loaded with lead shot, you won't have access to the flite control wad that Federal uses or the resin that Winchester uses in the Longbeard loads. Now if you just want to make a load so that you can feel the accomplishment of taking a turkey with the load you made, then great. But you will be hard pressed to make a load that out performs the factory turkey loads available today. They are expensive but after patterning, you will only shoot one or two shells per year so cost isn't that significant.
