Re: 8 days

Day 7 Went back to GA and hunted one of the prettiest properties around. Had a lot of fun, but they were tight-lipped and unresponsive to my overtures. Day 8 My brother, youngest daughter, and I arrived at the place we planned on hunting just as gobbling was getting underway. We could not set up whe...

8 days

Only got to tote the gun 8 days this spring, but had an enjoyable season nonetheless. Day 1 Went down to GA for opening day, and hunted hard all day long. Heard one gobbler off the property on the roost, and I couldn't get close enough to do any good with him. Never saw a track or any sign anywhere....

Re: 1 oz 20 gauge tss load

Any one have any super fast load data for the 20 or 12? I've got a nice 1624 fps 20 ga load, and a buddy (he doesn't post here) came up with a 1680 fps 12 ga load. He kills a lot of ducks with that. Hal, what size payloads are those running? Light - 3/4 oz for the 12 and 9/16 for the 20. Also have ...

Re: Need advice on mylar.

I've always been afraid to not use it if the recipe calls for it. But be careful if shooting it over a chrony. I found out the hard way that a piece of mylar will kill a chrony dead. For a 12 gauge I like the idea of the petals of a CSD20 wad instead of mylar. It provides absolute barrel protection...

Re: TSS 2's and deer

I like the idea of a 1oz load of 2s at standard velocity. Wonder how far that'd perforate the neck of a doe. Back about 9 or 10 years ago with the first "buckshot" TSS load I came up with, I used #1s, going about 1235 fps MV. The first deer shot was a small buck broadside at 67 yds. The shooter cou...

Re: T10s?

Reports have been very good on the 10s this spring. I suspect they will be a very popular size for the small bores. Had one report out of a 20 ga that is crazy, but have no reason to believe he's lying. They did very well last fall for me on wood ducks and crows.... When I first started shooting and...

Yeah, don't use the BPI maxi cards... Get the Precision cards or the like.

And sometimes it seems to be not just chamber pressure, but the payload/speed that you have to worry about in some guns. Particularly autos....

Re: 12ga 3" 2oz load

What size(gauge) felt do I need for a spacer for this load? No felt in that particular load, unless you need to bring the OSC up higher for roll crimp, then you can put a 12 ga 1/8" felt under the OSC over the shot and buffer. As a rule of thumb for questions on these loads, just PM me with any spe...
