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: 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.

Are we talking about for deer or coyotes? Coyotes to 100 would be much easier.

Re: 100 yard buckshot

I have patterned some 2 3/4" 1 1/4oz TSS 4mm to 60. It has plenty of pattern density and penetration energy for that distance. I would think you would need to shoot a fast load of 1 3/4oz of maybe 4.5-5mm to get acceptable density and penetration at 100. Still be a stretch I think.

Re: 20 ga. 1-5/8 TSS vs. Same in 12 ga.

I would say you are right on all accounts. You would have more room to speed up the load and still be in safe pressures.
I don't know the shot strings would compare.

Re: 935 and TSS

It may work, but may be to tight if a choke. I would find a .720ish choke for tss.
