If power means bird killing power you will get it from larger shot and more pellets on target. High initial velocity 1250-1350 FPS slows to velocity just a bit faster than 1150-1180 FPS loads arriving on target at distance. Not enough faster to make much difference. Much more pressure with higher velocity .

Opinion worth what it cost if the tested 23-24 grs of Green dot 1 1/4 oz large shot won’t kill your turkey better to get a modern gun and use magnum shells. Refer to the link I posted few pages back collective experience with that load and tested pressures shown.

Also note 19 Gr Was the heaviest Red Dot Load test published on this forum. Don’t confuse it with heavier Green Dot loads GD is a slower powder more suitable for heavier shot weights.
