You'll have to cycle through the drop downs, but it lists the .410 at 13/16 oz with #9 TSS

Re: Anyone shot the Federal .410 loads?

Hal's 13/16 oz. load has the same payload as the Federal. You must be referring to one of the older loads. He also has another load of 15/16 oz. at faster fps (1200) and lower pressure (10,000) than the 13/16 oz. load. When I was trying to make a silk purse out a sow's ear barrel's factory full, I d...

Re: Ballistiscale acting up?

There are some expensive ones out there, but even with them, you can only trust after verification. I had a $25 digital scale weighing powder and shot by half. In the trash can it went after 5 years of good service. Newer US coins are consistent in weight and make good checks for powder drops. If a ...

Re: .410 TSS Choke/Pattern Help

116 is a good pattern and a reliable turkey killer at 40 yards which was unheard of in years before Hal developed the 13/16 oz. load. Shooting a box of lead through a new choke has helped some "break-in" a new choke for reasons I can't fully explain. Some folks report better patterns with a dirty ba...

Re: .410 TSS Choke/Pattern Help

Get a box of the cheapest .410 Wallyworld lead shells and shoot it through your gun's fart ube, er far tube, run a boresnake through it or clean it with an alcohol patch, don't "deep clean" it, shoot it again with TSS and count.

Stainless steel funnel set

Metal funnel set. Here's a set of three stainless funnels that will be useful handloading, especially powders and buffer. No more clinging to plastic. 3" 20 gauge brass hull for scale. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FKERMW/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 http://www.jpgbox.com/jpg/53580...

Re: 28 ga. & .410 turkeys

Sumtoy, as noted above, cut the barrel to 22", threaded and choked it. I dunno who did the pad, but it doesn't quite fit, but does the job. My buddy noted he did it because "it kicks like a mule" to which I replied, but carries like a sparrow. Gil

Re: Pressure limits

Maximum gun pressure limits are recommended by SAAMI (Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturing Institute). For a 12 ga. gun made for 3.5", 14,000 psi. For other 12 ga. guns, 11,500. However these limits are established for modern guns. Older guns pressures are usually considerably lower and modern...

Re: Double wad loads and choke type

In using the Kyle Smith 1 oz. 20 ga. load, the pattern was far better with a ported than with a non-ported choke in one of my guns. The non-ported choke worked very well with single wad loads and is my preferred choke in all my 20's. The KS outer wad would be stripped quickly by the ported choke as ...

Rem has taught us all something: If the barrel is removed, the hinge pin must go in the same side or there is hell to pay. I have no idea why this is so, but having heard others correct the ftf by re-positioning the pin seems to me that it does make a difference. Has anyone measured the OD the lengt...

Re: Gobbler Responses versus distance

The farthest I've had a bird respond was over 800 yards as measured by google earth. He shock gobbled to me and I coursed him trying to get close. It was probably the best decision I made by not calling until I was assured of the set up. When I got within 200 yards, there was knee deep water between...

Re: Yildiz410

Rem, that may explain why some folks cured ftf by slamming the barrels shut. Good to know. What we were diagnosing as weak hammer spring could have been what you report, especially if barrel was removed and reassembled. It's no easy task to take the center pin out. How do you do it? Gil

Interesting mount for the FF. Did you make it? How does the tight barrel mess with the breech opening trigger (which also cocks the hammer)? Is the metal warping? Gil

About the cheapest is the Spot; the $450 is the most highly recommended Garmin In Reach+, but the old DeLorme model has many of the same features at almost half price. If future lack of someone to repair the DeLorme is a concern, be aware that Garmin discontinues servicing some of its older products...
