Bought my wife a 1100 LT several years ago. I can not find turkey shot for it. Where do I find 2 3/4" turkey loads for a 20.

You might have to look at regular magnum shotshells like these (http://natchezss.com/ammo.cfm?contentID=productDetail&ammoRecID=3&brand=FA&prodID=FAP2566&CFID=1313349&CFTOKEN=28987825). I am sure there are others, but you may be stuck buying boxes of 25. Of course you will need to be aware of the limitations of basically a 12 ga. field load. I would limit shots to no further than 25 yards or so depending on how the gun patterns. Good luck!

Remington and Winchester make turkey loads in 20 gauge. I think you can buy both at BassPro.

Federal Wing Shok Magnum Load or Wing Shok High Velocity for 2 3/4 in 4's or 6's is probably your best choice.

I've got a 20 gauge Browning auto-5 with a 28" full choke barrel that my boys have used on turkeys. It's very effective up to 30 yds with 2 3/4" Remington magnum high velocity number 6s.
