Assuming viable patterns, 9-1/2s give 1.25" ballistics gel penetration to 60 yds, and the 10s to 51.6 yds. It'll be interesting to get field test reports on them this spring...

A buddy loaded up a 1-1/2 oz 10 x 9-1/2 shell the other day, shot it, and sent me this 40 yd picture: Carlson sporting clay ex full .526, Stevens 555 26" barrel. 10s and 9-1/2s were mixed, not stacked. http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/patterns/pattern%2028%20ga%201.5%20oz%2010%20x%2...

more 28 ga Trulock .520 patterns

Since the CZ choke shot so well, I got Trulock to make me one for the Franchi 48AL and the Ithaca 37. The weather wasn't ideal with 10-12 mph crosswinds. But here are the 40 yd, 10" and 10-20" patterns with a Trulock .520 from this weekend - same 1.5 oz load of TSS 9-1/2s: Ithaca 37 http://i243.phot...

My brother had been unable to find a flock of mountain toms the last three times out, but finally found some today. Called them over with a Quaker Boy World Champ and took one with his old 2-3/4" Wingmaster and 2 oz of TSS 8s. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v226/wyogoob/Fix%20Pis%20for%20others/b...
