Congrats on your bird.
On a Wyoming hunt a few years ago I used a round ball in a .50 Hawken Rifle. Called the tom in and promptly missed his head at 30 yds., after a lot of fumbling I reloaded and called him back to place a nice round hole in the center of his head at 20 yds.
If a rifle is used to body shoot a turkey across a canyon - not too much fun.
If a rifle is used to head shoot a turkey called into shotgun range - mighty fine turkey hunting.
If you agree with me call it fact; if you disagree - call it my opinion.
After all - we are talking turkey.
