Re: Poa / poi question

Yes absolutely different loads can shoot to varying POI. It is incumbent on the hunter to shoot the load he plans to hunt with to verify POI. If you don't have enough of those shells to do that, then ethically you should not hunt with them. I would submit that it is more critical to do so with TSS ...

Re: Poa / poi question

Yes, different loads can have different POI. The only way to be certain is to shoot them. Sometimes it's the Indian and not the arrow when it comes to misses. Gil

Yep, but dang they throw a awesome pattern with the right choke!!! I like my 4.25 lb ATI Cavalry o/u .410.
Still shoots like a .410 and carries like a 12. My 12 ga. 870 SuperMag weighs 7 lbs. Gil

Re: CAUTION! Yildiz single shots!!!

William, thanks for pointing that out. I see what you mean by the barrel closure re-cocking the gun. I wonder if his sear wasn't engaging the hammer for reasons that you surmised. Gil

Re: Do you notch any of your calls?

I hunted with a man recently who notches a quality box. He has 60 notches in it for kills with it alone, but he doesn't notch it if he uses another call during the hunt and he is good with a mouth call. Gil

If the trigger wasn't pulled with the action open, loaded and snapped shut, was any trigger work done on the gun?

Re: CAUTION! Yildiz single shots!!!

If the trigger is pulled with the barrel open, the hammer is down and the pin is extended. Load it and snap it shot and "BOOM".

Re: FF3- 3 moa or 8 moa

I understand the "aim small, miss small" theory behind the 3 moa vs. the 8 moa, but I find that the 8 works fine at turkey ranges. At 40 yards, 8 moa covers a 3.2" disk and 3 moa, a 1.2" disk. I've used 1, 3, 6 and 8 moa and centering poa isn't a problem with 8.

Re: Ammo sales?!

You can download and paste the label on your box. It's the ORM-D "cartridges, small arms" label. You have to do this at the depot and not a UPS "store". There is a form to be filled out disclosing the make and type of ammo. PIA but better than getting busted by USPS. Gil

Pinch a bit of styrofoam peanut and put it on top of load so that it sticks above the wad. Crimp. It'll control rattle for awhile. To get more pellets in the 10" use #10 shot. What are your numbers? Gil

Went to a favorite spot on land which was recently burned. It's a longleaf pine hill bordering a swamp. Birds started up at 7:00 a.m., three came in and 2 left at 7:15. Sometimes it's easy. In my haste to get out of the woods and back home, while reeling up the string he came in on, string got tangl...
