#4 buck makes a damn fine turkey load for long ranges. I cast my own and buffer in bp ranger wads. 1 3/8 oz at 1425 fps with a load of longshot powder. Works wonders on coyotes too.

As to pellet energy it is ALWAYS a trade off of pattern density vs individual pellet energy(penetration). More pellets mean fuller patterns at close ranges. They have less individual energy and penetration. Look in lymans shotshell reloading manual. They have a great chart to explain this.

Www.ballisticproducts.com sells buckshot and slugs both. Get the manual they sell for data to load them. Lee makes two slug molds 7/8 and 1 oz for less than $25 each. They also make buckshot molds, much cheaper to cast your own rather than buying.
