Re: Choke for TSS #8 and #9s 12ga 3in?

Too tight can blow your pattern, meaning it may get crazy 10" numbers, but the pattern will be splotchy, uneven, and inconsistent. Too tight may just give you a smaller room for error with a super tight pattern with a very high percentage in 10" and none left for 20" that looks cool on paper. Most g...

Re: What's your favorite load?

Man there are some tss smokers in the 20 to choose from!
Right now I am shooting Hal’s 1200fps 1 7/16oz load with 9’s.
So that’s my favorite.
In 12 I like a 2.25oz load of 1oz 8’s or 7’s duplexed with 1.25oz of 9’s.

Re: Browning Gold NWTF 12ga

the .665 and .675 blew my patterns to crap in my Browning Gold and 2oz loads. I have had great luck with .680 Carlson's, Browning xfull trap special, and .696 PG Buckshot Choke. All average 350plus in 10" and 250 plus in 10-20". Obviously every gun is different looking at 2Shooter's pattern.

Re: Hal’s 2 1/8oz 20ga load

I have shot Barry's 3 oz load, Tommy's fast 2.5oz load, Hal's 1 7/8oz 20 gauge, Hal's 1 5/8oz lil zip, Hal's MOA, Hal's quick 2.25oz load, and Barry's 2.25oz load. Performance is awesome on all of these. They all dislike my shoulder, but I don't think they would bother anyone while shooting a turkey...

Crow ammo

Remington 1 1/4oz 1330 #6’s, Fiocchi 1 1/4oz 1330 fps #6’, and if I can catch them on sale the Federal 1500fps 1 1/4 6’s or 7.5’s with factory IM in my A5. Lighter stuff does work up close, but once they flare they are hard to bring down. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180120/43069b272829005b5e8...

Re: First TSS patterns

In all likelihood, too much choke. Open it up some and watch the patterns tighten up. Jhogue, I have a couple of chokes you can try in your Maxus if interested. I had good luck in my Invector plus guns with .680 Carlson's, .696 Buckshot Pure gold, and .696 Browning Trap special. Just let me know. L...

Re: Vests

Haven't went vestless yet, but def hauling less and less to the woods. I do really like my Knight's Hands Free vest, it is kind of a minimalist vest. I am down to a pot, a box, and some mouth calls. Thanks for turning me on to the Wranglers, best turkey hunting pants ever!

It has a little pop to it for sure, not like I was expecting at all. Just stout, not a punisher like a Longbeard.

Re: Hal’s new Lil Zip 1260fps 1 5/8oz load

Same gun and choke. I think each shell was slightly different. Have to wait for Hal to chime in. If ya look at overall 20" numbers they are very close.
