Re: 2nd test of the little 20.

You can decrease center density (usually) in the TSS9 loads by not using buffer. In my Super Bantam, it was too tight buffered. In my Mad Russian Baikal, unbuffered is very even with 60 fewer shot in the 10 ring than the buffered version. I plan on trying a lighter load--the 1 5/8 oz. # 9 is overkil...

Re: Lost my best box call....

Chuck was a proponent of breaking through a hatch, particularly the parlep (#22-24) with either a black ant or elk hair beetle, #16-18 dry. We used a lot of "Skinny Nelsons" (version of a PT nymph) and mahogany dun emerger's during that hatch. Fun days in the fall after Labor Day.

Re: Fixed Modified OK with TSS?

I think it would be less of a problem with small shot and modified than large shot and full. Probably be okay. #9 would be better. Larger shot and tighter choke more likely to "bridge" and bulge than modified and small shot.

Re: Lost my best box call....

Toasty, I haven't fished the Ranch in 20 years. I was lucky and fished it in the late 70s through the 80s when it was at its best. I understand it is on the rebound. We'd usually go in at the mailbox, fish up past Bonefish and back down stream not quite to Osborne, staying on the Ranch. There's no p...

Re: Lost my best box call....

In the same vein, but more in the line of destruction than loss: A buddy hunted a Neil Cost box call and it got wet. He put it in the oven to dry at a low setting, forgot about it and came back to find very expensive charcoal. I had Winston 3 wgt. graphite flyrod and a 2 7/8" Hardy Perfect with line...

Re: seat cushions

Air cushions are fine in a thornless environment that doesn't include Rio country in Terrell County, TX. There is no way that one can survive there based on my experience.

Re: fall hunters?

I wouldn't be interested being in the same woods with deer hunters with rifles during the fall. I also remember the great Ben Lee's comment about some biologists' belief that killing fall hens didn't impact the population. "How do I know if the hen I killed legally in the fall season wouldn't have e...

Re: Fold Vs Roll crimp

For turkey loads from an established recipe with new primed hulls and precise hand weighing of shot and powder, a roll crimper is all that is needed. Roll crimping is the most economical path into handloading for turkeys. With a roll crimper, there is no need to adjust the crimper for shell length a...

Re: new loads

I think I may have a small tear in my rotator cuff from shooting too many 2 oz HS loads doing load development. I'm thinking I may have to drag the 1.25 oz load out of retirement. It sure is pleasant to shoot and costs about 1/2 what the 3.5" 2.5 oz load does. best shoulder protection I've used has...

Re: new loads

Hal, I assume you are going back to the drawing board on the 7/8 oz. load. It sounds like a screamer at 1406 fps. A duck load? How'd it pattern in the 10" ring? Gil

Re: Poor Country Preacher

Having a gun project between seasons is a good way to keep the interest up--and it provides plenty of daydream fodder when you should be doing something else. Good luck. Gil

Re: cheap Wal-Mart calls

I hunted a Lil' Duece this season and liked it because of size and sound. My all-time favorite mouth call is a Perfection Raspy D and I bought dozens at a season's end close-out price of $2 @ about 10-12 years ago from Wally World.

Re: Ipe ( Brazilian Walnut )

Nice looking call. Ipe dust is reputed to be toxic, causing severe allergic reactions in some folks. It is also loaded with silica. Be careful in sanding and wear appropriate breathing protection.
