I would think a load specifically designed for turkey hunting would be best.

I would say a 3" #4 or #6 and invest in a GOOD recoil pad for the youngster,him being only 7 you may want to stick with the 2 3/4 low brass.

Ideally get the high brass...or wait for a very close shot that's on target...no need to injure a bird and have your son feeling bad because of it. I'd better just agree with tubby on this.

3 " would be better but only if he is not bothered by recoil. If he doesn't enjoy shooting he won't enjoy hunting.

Safe shooting

Enjoy life but remember, we are only practicinng for something better.

Yea but it ain't that easy to knock out a Tom with low brass. High Brass # 4 in two and three qaurter inch.  Have him practice and that would be the best bet. Since you have a mod. choke you need the tightest pattern possibe. I would recomend 3"  but that would hurt any seven year old
