Hey gents,

I'm waiting to see the results of the lottery here in IL, so I figured I'd start working on a turkey load. I've turkey hunted a few times before, and killed 1 with factory ammo. Was wondering if someone would be willing to share a few recipes? I would be taking either my 10ga or 12ga this spring, and I have copious amounts of components for each.

Any help would be appreciated.

Both Alliant & Hodgdon have a good assortment of heavy turkey loads in 2 3/4, 3 and 3 1/2 in 12 gauge and also 10 gauge lead loads. It's a good place to start.

Tried a couple work-ups for my 10ga Using Blue dot and Steel. It's some place to start I guess. One was 54.4% the other was 53.8% at 40yds.
