On a head shot no wasted meat. I don't know on a body shot, but with a light load it would be minimal. IMHO head shot only should be taken. While I have several rifles that are capable of that I would not try it. For me taking a turkey with a ML rifle is way down the to do list. While rifles are traditional guns uded for taking turkeys so was roost shooting, baiting, no bag limits etc. Most have been outlawed and in many states they even specify shotgun gauge and max shot size. I reccomend a ML shotgun for turkeys. This gun can be used for doves, ducks, geese and small game too. I would use the rifles for deer.
I will get a list together and send it to you.
Steve, I love "smoked" turkey
