swamp woodies and teenagers

Took my youngest daughter and oldest grandson out Saturday morning and had some quality time in the swamp. http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/Duck%20hunt%20Trevor%20and%20Lauren%2010-17/IMG_3747_zps7dr22hd8.jpg http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/Duck%20hunt%20Trevor%20a...

VA skwerls

Went out with a grandson Saturday and got some quality hiking and sitting and shooting in. He wanted it to be sporting, so he opted for a NEF single shot 20" barrel .410 loaded with 11/16 oz of Pb 6s. I toted my iron sight BL22 (as usual) with some subsonic 42 gr hollow points. http://i243.photobuck...

Apex has been developing varmint loads with TSS
Varmint loads with TSS were developed way before those fellows ever heard of TSS....

Re: 100 yard buckshot

I have received a report of 90 yard kill with #BBs. There aren't many people shooting TSS for deer, but 100 yds is likely the first time someone who has it choked right tries it, IMO.

Re: CZ 28 ga, 1-5/8 oz

Let's see what develops in factory loads in 3" for 28 ga. Once that happens, the components will most likely follow from reloading sites. Then it's game on. Brass hulls are already available and since they don't depend on crimping to hold the shot in the shell, 2 3/4" chambered guns would work with...

CZ 28 ga, 1-5/8 oz

The only thing wrong with this load is that with the light CZ O/U it kicks like a big boy. Other than that, it's going to be a great load to shoot at turkeys with. 1038 fps, 10240 psi 40 yds, 10" and 10-20" numbers, with 9-1/2s and Trulock .520. http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/patt...

.410 Yildiz, 370NM, with CompNChoke

Here's a look at some patterns I've shot today with my Yildiz and a CompNChoke .385 (with my best Factory Full pattern of 10s thrown in for reference); my 370NM load. 40 yds, 10" and 10-20" numbers 10s Factory Full http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/patterns/IMG_3663_zpssaohdjk7.jpg 1...

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

One of the intriguing things about TSS is not only the other-league performance you can get with it, but how you can do so many things with it. My first load with it was a 1-5/8 oz 2-3/4" 12 ga load. One of my latest is a 1-5/8 oz 28 ga load. It's crazy to think you have the capability of 1-5/8 oz l...

They don't call the VP90 "The Tank" for no reason. I was the maybe the first one complaining to BPI when they said they were going to quit selling it. It's thick and designed to be tough - ideal for heavy TSS loads - UNLESS there is a problem with the manufacture or design of it. The design has inde...

Re: VP92

I would wonder if the 4 failures of the 90 isn't from something loaded wrong? I haven't heard or seen anyone having problems from wads being used in a hotter load.. With a wad being stuck in the barrel it sounds like it could have the improper amount of powder being used? There was nothing loaded w...

Re: Is it consistent

True sized and true 18g/cc density 10s give you about 533/oz. And the smaller the shot is, the tougher it is to be exact on the size part. The 10s folks have been using this year have been running about 500/oz. Like Wes said, if we use 1.25" ball. gel penetration as the standard needed, and 1100 fps...

Re: Is it consistent

I pay more attention to variation in the 20" instead of 10". The 20" is usually a better measure of consistency, IMO.

Re: FALL TURKEY SEASONS FOR ALL 49 STATES....

One thing for certain, if you kill five poults at any age, that's five that will not see two years of age. Preach. Some areas obviously can support a fall season. But in the South where the spring seasons run for 6 to 8 weeks I don't see how the population could sustain itself without hunters makin...
