Shot the light modified this morning, with 2.75" #2's and the results were good, in the wind.
As far as pressures are concerned, I'd think a 3" high velocity turkey load would produce higher pressures than most factory steel.
Usually turkey loads are heavier than waterfowl. The heavier the load, doesn't that produce more pressure?
Usually heavier loads will be higher pressure, the difference is the shot materials used. 1 1/4 oz of lead shot in 12 gauge hull is considered a medium weight shot charge, 1 1/4 oz of steel shot is considered a heavy shot charge and usually a higher pressure loading. Steel shot because of it's bulk will produce higher pressures many times than the same weight of lead shot.
I know that all of the 3" factory steel loads I shoot, with the exception of possibly the Hypersonics, will not cycle in my Auto 5 with both friction rings in place. It will cycle with 2.75" Remington Nitro magnum #4's with both friction rings in place.
Lot of times factory ammo isn't exactly what the box says it will be, I chronographed enough to see loads that were listed as 1550 fps on the box actually average out to under 1500 fps many times.
I have some 1650 fps 1 1/8 oz loads made up that should suit your fancy..
