    If you don't already own the gun, go with the 12 gauge. The only reason I say this is because the 12 gauge shells usually have higher velocity. I love my 20 gauge, but is difficult to find shells that produce the velocity of the 12 at max loads. Check it out, see what I mean. If anyone knows a manufacture that produces a 20 gauge max 3" load that is over 1420 fps, I would be interested.

    I agree on the range. Though it is possible to stretch the range, you are asking for trouble when you do and will be turning turkeys into food for the wildcats.

    I agree with Smitty--50 is way too long at any guage. Go with the 12g & maybe you can stretch your range to 40, but IMHO you should try to get the bird in to 25 yards before you take the shot. Your max range should depend on how your gun with the choke you're using patterns at 20, 25, 30 ... Have a safe & happy hunt!

    I would not even attempt to take a turkey at any more than 30 yards. You are asking for a wounded bird if you try it any farther.
