    I am using a browning bps and I am wondering if I can use the turkey shot I have. They are winchester high velocity turkey loads. 2 3/4 inch 1300fps 5shot and "sth125" is the part number on the box. I was told that some loads can't be shot out of certain barrels. Anyone know if these will be alright? Thanks for your help!

    It's a lead shot load, right? If so, shouldn't cause any problems. It's steel shot you have to watch out for.

    You ought to pattern it first to see how it does at whatever range, and find out where you need to hold it to nail ol' Tom in the noggin...

    Good huntin', and Stay Safe... wear orange on the way in and out (but not in the blind).
