Went shotgun hunting this last Fall for Rio Grande turkey here in S. Texas.
At this time of the year before breeding they travel in flocks of 30 or more birds on the ranch I have access to.
At one point I had a flock come no closer than 50 yds of my blind but I did not want to risk taking a gobbler and maybe killing some of the other birds around him with overspray.
I have decided that next season I will try to take a gobbler with my .243, either with a head shot or a shot to the body as it is legal here in Texas.
What are my chances of taking a gobbler with a good body shot if I use a 90gr full copper metal jacket bullet that will not expand at all?
I would hope that it would not explode him.
What part of the body would you aim at?
Or would a head shot be most recommended?
As far as accuracy I am a benchrest shooter and can get 1-2" groups out to 200yds.
