Ouch! Fun pattern to look at but nothing I need. You are braver to shoot them things than me my friend!
Lol, I like "Braver" better than the other word you could have used.

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.

Re: why a 20 over 12

ok question most guys say 20 will do everything a 12 will my question is wouldn't a 12 gauge 3 1/2" shooting tss9 kill farther..? its got to have more whop behind it Not necessarily. A #9 pellet going 1100fps is going to have same amount of energy no matter if it is fired out of a 10 gauge or a .41...

Re: remington 870 20 gauge indian creek choke

If you are on a budget try Primos Tightwad .570. Shooting tss right? That stuff doesn't require expensive chokes.
