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: InReach Satellite communicator

I have been building Amazon points to buy one of these units. The Inreach Plus is only slightly more expensive than the SE model, but with the added feature of your texts sending maps to text recipients. While it can GPS navigate, this is not its forte. Being able to summon help and communicate with...

The TSS 9's gave me better patterns then the PB 7.5's.

Re: Federal TSS .410 Wad revocery

Are the shot buried or removable with a little effort? Could be caused by setback embedding the shot into the wad. Probably no wad stripper in your gun's choke which helps release the shot from the wad. Custom screw-ins have wad strippers.

Re: Federal TSS .410 Wad revocery

I'm wondering if the wad is flipping over before complete shot release. What's the pattern like? If the pattern is good; I wouldn't worry about a few shot sticking in the wad. I don't have the issue with the four petal tps wad and handloads. Gil

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

Re: 13/16 vs the 370NM load

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

International Bird

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.

Re: Mount recommendations for Burris FF3

I've used both the Sumtoy and the 336. The 336 mount predate the Sumtoy mount. The advantage of the Sumtoy mount over the 336, at least to my thinking, is that it has a radius that matches and mates with the curve of the gun's receiver or barrel. This a sturdier than the 336. Both are low mounts.

Re: Wanting to load tss

Take a look at the "sticky" in the reloading section to see what hardware you'll need. Foreman did a five part series on handloading TSS. When you get the shot, the shot provider will give you a recipe. Don't get into the "try every load" possible state of mind. In all gauges there are one or two po...

Re: bead or scope

Speaking of old eyes: I noticed my red dot on my Yildiz single-shot .410 appeared to be slightly out of round with the vertical diameter slightly longer than the diameter at right angle to the vertical. I looked through the left eye. Perfect. My right eye is most likely astigmatic. Gil

Not sure of the choke geometry or diameter. It was the first screw-in he made for the Yildiz. He had previously sleeved a choke into the muzzle on another gun I had him build. William made several changes while I was at his shop testing it. It extended .75" out of the muzzle. Newer versions aren't t...
