Preheat oven to 425 F, with rack in lower third.
Rinse turkey inside and out and pat dry with paper towels. Place on a rack set in large roasting pan.
Blend 4 T. butter with 2 tsp. salt and dried herbs; season with pepper. Loosen skin of turkey and spread mixture under skin all over, reaching as far back as possible.
Rub skin of turkey with remaining 4 T. butter. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. salt; season with pepper. Loosely stuff body cavity with 4 3/4 cups stuffing, and next cavity with 1/4 cup. Tie drumsticks together loosely with kitchen twine. Fold neck skin under body and secure with toothpicks. Tuck wing tips under wings.
Roast turkey 30 minutes. Baste turkey, reduce oven temperature to 350 F. Continue to roast (basting every 20 minutes with pan juices) until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh (avoiding bone) registers 180 F and stuffing registers 165 F, 3-3 1/2 hours. If skin darkens too quickly during roasting, tent with foil.
Let turkey rest 30 minutes before carving. Leave juices in roasting pan to make gravy.
