    I was looking to pick up a new turkey gun in 20. Does anyone use or have experience with this shotgun? I was looking at the older model with traditional stock, not the newer "tactical turkey"...I've killed a couple birds with a little youth rem 870 and TSS, both @ 40 yds and decided why carry a heavy 12 when I can carry a light 20 and do the same thing. Anyway, if you know anything about the Winchester I'd be glad to hear your opinion. Thanks!

    the SXP with invector+ choke tube with a IndianCreek 555-562 and some TSS turkey shells will absolutely hammer them gobblers close and further than needed. If you got the SXP you'll be happy with how it shoots.

    Have a SXP 12 gauge- good shooter thus far for ducks- it weight a full pound less than my Benelli Supernova, c. 7 lbs., so you might want to try that instead of the 20 and retain the 12 gauge's additional "oomph"

    The 20 will kill birds just fine.
