TTT, I'm shooting a model 12 same size as you & I'm going with the #4's. They came in a 5 pack & say turkey loads on em. I'll use 1 shot to pattern & still have 4 years worth of ammo. wink You know, 1 shot kills. The ol lady doesn't like me practicing my call in the garage either. Good luck!

Tyler, have you thought of using the Hevi-shot #4?
Just a reminder that the pattern is much tighter than lead and the down range energy is BIG. Poor turkey!......Save a drumstick for me. wink

If you can stiil find them Remington made a 4x6 duplex load with buffer. I'm shooting the same load in a Mossberg 500 30' xfull and getting 15-19 vital hits at 40 yds. Can't find the loads here anymore, so we load our own with 4x6 tungsten and buffer it.
