Re: bead or scope

Been shooting TSS for almost a decade (9 years). IMO it patterns too tightly for beads. I use FF IIIs. They are fast with a great field of view and only weigh an ounce. I like lightweight turkey guns and don't care to lug around the extra weight of a scope.

Re: Over thinking chokes...

Heres my report... I shot this morning at lasered 40ydrs. 303 in a 10" and 135 in the 20" with the .558 IC Found it interesting that the more open choke shot tighter for me than the .555. When I counted up everything it was the exact same pellet count from the 10 - 20" as the .555 just more even, w...

Re: Lightweight gun weights

My 12 ga Beretta 686 UL O/U with 28" barrels is listed at 5 lb, 14 oz, but mine weighs 6 lbs - really light for a 12 ga.

Re: Over thinking chokes...

I think you would be splitting hairs. I would hunt the .562 pattern as is, but try straight 9s in both when you run out. BTW, what brand are your choke tubes?

I shot my patterns this weekend and the best 10” pellet count @ 40 yards was 264. Tried a .675 Terror choke and was only able to get 205 in the 10”.
What choke tube was the 264?

Thanks for the info. I'll be patterning the Federal TSS 12 gauge 1.75 oz #9's thru this combination and hoping for 300+ in the 10" circle @ 40 yards.
This combo does 347/192 with 1&5/8 oz of 371/oz 9s.

Re: TSS THRU A FRANCHI INTENSITY

Did you try a .665 choke with that load? I did; it was a ST but with a different layout. I tried a .665 and .680 with William's standard layout with wad catchers. The ST .675 that I settled on is his waterfowl layout (if memory serves) without wad catchers. It performed the best with that load in m...

Re: TSS THRU A FRANCHI INTENSITY

I shoot 1&5/8 oz TSS 8.5s over 9s through a 12 ga Beretta 686/ST .675 (Mobil choke) and average 283/196.

Re: Shotgun sights

Now age 56, I started having the same problem about 10 years ago resolving two fiber optic sights as well as the turkey. Put FFs on both my turkey guns and never looked back. TSS will only make the problem worse. I much prefer 1 oz red dots to 12-16 oz scopes. Your confidence will go up markedly, kn...

Never seen or even heard of TSS 8s or 9s harming a barrel or choke tube. But I can see how steel BBs, BBBs, and Ts could.

Re: 20 Ga. Clear Overshot Cards?????

And if the 20s are like the 12s, they are frangible, i.e. they shatter upon ignition and get out of the way of the shot. The theory being that they improve patterns compared to cardboard OSCs. Additionally there is no need to waterproof them.

Re: Crow ammo

A quality trap load of hard 7.5s at 1200 fps or its handloaded equivalent and a mod choke kills 'em fine to 40 yds. If you routinely shoot beyond that range, 1.25 oz of hard 6s at 1300+ fps and an IM or full probably works better, but I don't care for the recoil.

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

Wow, that is very significant. I may need to try that. I’m assuming that I would have to change more components than just the powder. I’ll definitely look into it. Yes, that is correct. Never, never, never substitute a faster burning powder for a slower one without knowing what effect you will have...
