Re: Winchester model 1300
Not necessarily so.. Get a AR type stock set for it. The ATI pistol grip buttstocks are good. Have the barrel shortened to 20 inches and have the muzzle re-reamed and threaded for chokes. Then get a Jelly Head ported choketube. Not only is it a designated turkey choke, but its ported (looks like an AR flashhider) and will sit right at home on your 1300.
I did a very similar thing to my 870, except I kept the factory laminate stock and cut the barrel to 19". I use it as a HD shotgun primarily, but also shoot dove and sporting clays as well as turkey hunting.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.

After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
