Re: Which new 20?

Can't go wrong with any of the mentioned guns. I have an SA20 turkey and M2, it is stressful every morning deciding which one to take.

Re: Benelli m2 trigger upgrades?

Get a taran tactical trigger spring. Cheap and easy, lightens the trigger a bunch. Way cheaper than a trigger job from Rob Roberts.

Re: Franchi or m2 which would you pick?

Love the feel of my M2, but given the choice again I would save hundreds and get the Affinity. Use extra cash for a good stash of TSS! Hardly any difference in the two.

Re: Who Shoots TSS in a BPS 20 Gauge

I shot a .585 Carlson's out of my SX3 with Hal's 1 5/8oz load and it was lights out. I could dig up a pic if ya want, it was a 310/220 average. I would think with the MOA a more open choke would be beneficial. It's an Invector plus gun so the bore diameter is .630, a .555 would be tiiiight!

Re: Anyone shot Hals MOA load in autos

I shot it a few times out of a Mossberg SA20. Crazy patterns! I don’t think it would cycle from mag to the chamber.
I still sticking with 1 7/16oz.

Re: Pics of Invector plus patterns IC .665 TSS?

I would bet .665 IC in Invector Plus would be ridiculous tight or maybe even blown. I would try a .675 IC or ask them to make a .680 for you.
I like the .680 Carlson's in my INV+.

Re: 90/93

I loaded up 10 of the 90/93's this spring to pattern but never got around to shooting them, I shoot a M2 and when I cut the cushion off the 93 wad I cut it right down flush with the top of the gas seal. My OAL ended up being 2.420 to 2.435 which should cycle fine in the Benelli, what I am wondering...

Re: 90/93

90/93 all the way for me. I shoot a 20 gauge Affinity. Any Italian design auto you have, your gonna need to do a lil hull trimming and make sure you cut the 93 wad low enough to give the finished load a short enough overall length to feed/cycle. If I was shooting a pump or breech loader, Hal's MOA ...

Re: What turkey gun?

Not to hijack thread, but what makes an M2 worth the money? I have had 2 M2 20 gauges and 1 M2 12 gauge. Great feeling gun for sure! Hardly any difference in components from the Franchi Affinity which is hundreds less.

Re: What turkey gun?

I have used both. Both will kill to extreme ranges and both can be choked to give nice forgiving hunting patterns or to get laser like patterns. For twenties I would look into the Sa20 turkey. Thing is compact, light, and in my experience shoots straight. Also comes drilled and tapped with a rail. A...

Re: Choke recommendations Browning INV +

I have shot about every size choke available in 12 inv+. Just depends on what ya want in a pattern. To lay em all in the 10” and impress your buddies, ya need .665ish. To have just a million in the 10” and good 10”-20” coverage I picked a .680 Carlson’s.

Re: Which Choke?

.665 IC will probably give a smoking pattern. A Carlson's .675 would probably throw a more forgiving hunting pattern.
