A large piece (36"x36") of white paper or cardboard with an aiming point drawn in the middle will give you a good indication where your pattern is in relation to your target. No need for turkey loads. Trap or game loads, particularly the ones you plan on hunting with, will be easier on your wallet and your shoulder. Shoot at about 30 yd. depending on how tight your choke is.
