Re: First TSS patterns

In all likelihood, too much choke. Open it up some and watch the patterns tighten up. Jhogue, I have a couple of chokes you can try in your Maxus if interested. I had good luck in my Invector plus guns with .680 Carlson's, .696 Buckshot Pure gold, and .696 Browning Trap special. Just let me know. L...

Re: Vests

Haven't went vestless yet, but def hauling less and less to the woods. I do really like my Knight's Hands Free vest, it is kind of a minimalist vest. I am down to a pot, a box, and some mouth calls. Thanks for turning me on to the Wranglers, best turkey hunting pants ever!

Ouch! Fun pattern to look at but nothing I need. You are braver to shoot them things than me my friend!
Lol, I like "Braver" better than the other word you could have used.

Re: Hal’s 2 1/8oz 20ga load

It has a little pop to it for sure, not like I was expecting at all. Just stout, not a punisher like a Longbeard.

Re: Hal’s new Lil Zip 1260fps 1 5/8oz load

Same gun and choke. I think each shell was slightly different. Have to wait for Hal to chime in. If ya look at overall 20" numbers they are very close.

Re: Nitro TSS Pricing Released

I saw this.. I started with a 20 about 05 06. It's gotten ridiculous. Don't give me the what you spend in gas argument. Spent 650 last month alone scouting fowl. I may go back to a 12 and longbeards. If longbeards would have come out before I got waist deep in TSS supplies, I would have never gotte...

Are we talking about for deer or coyotes? Coyotes to 100 would be much easier.

Re: 100 yard buckshot

I have patterned some 2 3/4" 1 1/4oz TSS 4mm to 60. It has plenty of pattern density and penetration energy for that distance. I would think you would need to shoot a fast load of 1 3/4oz of maybe 4.5-5mm to get acceptable density and penetration at 100. Still be a stretch I think.
