It's actually legal in a number of states to turkey hunt with a rifle! I've gotten one with a .22 magnum and my father got one with a 22 Hornet about 2-3 years ago. I'm told that the old 25-20 lever action was a hugely popular tukey rifle back in the day. I will tell you that they don't flop around after they've been shot with a rifle. They fall down graveyard dead. I'm just curious if anybody else uses them and what calibers they use.
