For turkeys I use #5 copper-plated shot in Multi-metal 3" or 3 1/2" slit cups. I use 80 gr. of #2 black powder. I use a O.P. wad, the filled cup, and one or two O.S. cards.
http://www.ballisticproducts.com/Copper-Plated-Lead-Shot-5-bag_10-lbs/productinfo/030CP05/
http://www.ballisticproducts.com/Multi-Metal-12ga-3-preslit-wad-100_bag/productinfo/3221230/

The cups make an open choke shoot a tighter pattern out to 45-50 yards maybe. 35 yards is better.

The unslit cups/wads act like a slug and will blow a big hole through the turkey.

When you say slit cups are you making pedels (3) by cutting them, or do they come this way?

They come that way if that's what you order. I ordered mine unslit and that's why I know they will act like slugs. Wink 

I manually slit them afterwards and they worked much better.

For the copper-plated, nickel-plated, or steel shot, you want to use the multi-metal cups to protect the walls of the bore from being scored. With all-lead shot it's not necessary unless you want to tighten the pattern.
If you have a choked barrel, then you can shoot lead shot with no cups.

Hi Bob
Forgot to ask. When you slit your shot cups do you slit them all the way down to the base? Im making my own. Wonder if I should lube them. They will me made from index cards.

The MultiMetal ones are a rather thick plastic and it's difficult to slice them straight with a pocket knife which is what I use. If you're using index cards, I would just experiment with scissors and make some 2 slit ones, some 3 slit, and some 4 slit. I'd start off with slits about 2/3 down and see what the pattern is and go from there. I have used grocery bag brown paper "cartridges" but they didn't open well.

With doves and quail I just use regular power piston 12 ga. wads with 7 1/2 shot. They act like an IC choke in my guns.
