Yes...will work fine depending on choke, patterning your gun, and knowing it's capability at a giving distance, and adhering too it

That's assuming it has say a full and modified barrel, and your shooting the full....anything less would not be suggested.

No problem.....just make sure you pattern the gun.  Get or draw a couple turkey targets....body, head neck....check the distance to see where your full choke puts the most pellets in neck and head.  Shoot it at that distance.  If you have a rangefinder take it with you and use it to check things around you where you sit so you know where that distance is, before a bird comes in.
