Re: Anyone using Federal TSS

If you shoot a 12 and adhere in spirit and in practice to 40 yards, lead is good enough. If you want to carry a lighter gun, which means a smaller gauge and lighter loads, TSS is the way to go.

Re: Who hunts with a double?

Back in the day when 10 gauge was the rage, I had two doubles in 10 ga. One was a 1938-9 Ithaca NID 3.5" and the other was a Spanish gun in the same chamber length. Both were 32". I still have the Ithaca after trading back for it about 5 years ago my SBE to the man I sold it to over 30 years ago. MI...

Re: Keltec KSG12

It's not just the fact the barrel is 18.5" that would be rough on the ears. The shooter's ears are handful of inches closer to muzzle than with an 18.5" barreled pump, auto or break-action. Add a suppressor. Then the length advantage is compromised and more weight added. And it's 12 gauge. Rube Gold...

I like Ole Cedric. With that gobblin' post butt kickin', he was saying "don't hold me back, don't hold me back, lemme at him, I'll get him" as he was hoping someone would hold him back and/or shoot the other bird.

Re: Loctite or something

Maybe not. Only way to find out is to call and ask. I use mine on a 20 ga. and was able to compress to fit, but .410 is considerably smaller. It may be compressible to fit, but the ends of the clamp might be too close together on a .410. Would you be shooting off a bead, rifle sight, peep or red dot...

Here's the removable sling I use on a woodcock/quail SxS doubles. The barrels are held by leather covered spring steel "C" with the "C" opening along the rib giving an unobstructed sight plane.

I have found that 4 guns is the minimum number for a dove shoot on a field we once shot. For my turkey hunting, it's 3 too many. Gil

Kemo Sabe, been there, too. Except I shot out of shells trying to finish one off with my old 835. Never shoot getting up or try to shoot running. Sit or stand and deliver, but not in between. Well, anyway, the bird was doing a slow trot as I hauled ass after him. It was soft ground and I was swingin...

It's not encouraging to read studies about loud noises and ears even with sound suppression muffs, etc. The sound can still be transmitted through the skull bones, even with ear plugs and muffs doubling up. I knew a crime lab technician that did ballistics testing. He'd wear the best muffs available...

Someone reported success using 13/16 oz. in the 370NM load because of increased velocity and reduced pressures. In order to shoot the 13/16 oz load at reduced pressure within SAAMI guidelines, a lower charge of powder was recommended by Hal. This decreased velocity below the speed of sound. The patt...
