Hey Donald, first off welcome to the forum. On that Benelli try Winchester Supreme 3 1/2" #5 I think you will like the resultd of them. They will hold a good tight pattern out to 45 yds.
Is it turkey season yet?

Hey Donald,

As far as lead turkey loads go, it's just hard to beat 3" Winchester HV (Black Shells) with 1.75 oz. of #6 lead shot. I have found no better choke to shoot that load than the SSX however, regardless of which gun you're shooting.

All my best whatever you choose.

Thanks,
Clark
