ran across this link a few days ago and thought it might come in handy for you guys testing your "lead" turkey loads....it gives you some idea of pellet numbers without cutting shells open or counting all those holes for each load size you are testing.

I say "lead" because ANY "heavier than lead" shot (i.e. Hevi-Shot or HS) will have fewer pellets than a "lead" load of the same size pellet and charge weight.....

 

example 1 oz load of #4's

 

Steel = 192 pellets

Bismuth = 155 pettets

Lead = 135 pellets

Hevi Shot = 119 pellets
