Re: FIFA World Cup Soccer

At least those players stand for their national anthems and actually appear to be proud to represent their countries unlike the spoiled ingrates that make millions in the NFL and then disrespect the country that makes it all possible. IMHO, every one of them should be sh*tcanned.

Re: 90/93

Don't shoot 20 ga, so not familiar with the 90/93 load. But the bottom line is, if you remove any cushion from a load relative to how it was pressure tested, pressure will increase. And if you add cushion, relative to how the load was tested, pressure will decrease.

Re: Who hunts with a double?

Hunt with a 12 ga Beretta 686 UL O/U. Need to learn how to post pix again. Gave up after Photobucket quit playing nice. Top barrel shoots about 6" higher than bottom barrel. Split the difference and aim at waddles with top barrel and noggin with bottom barrel, and it works out fine. Photobucket cav...

Re: What turkey gun?

For lead - 12 ga. For TSS - 20ga due to lower weight. A 20 with TSS will outshoot any 12 with lead.

I'm partial to gas operated guns for recoil.

If you choose a 20, I would look at the Weatherby SA-08 if you like a conventional grip or the SA-459 if you like a pistol grip.

Re: ATI Cavalry O/U .410 and TSS 9.5 shot

Absolutely amazing for a .410 at 50 yds. It wasn't that long ago that a 3.5" 12 ga would have a hard time hanging with that pattern.

Re: Red dot on SX3 for multi purpose gun

I am one of those that had problems with a speedbead. It was mounted on a 12 ga 3" 1187. The mount broke after only a few rounds. Contacted Burris, who treated me right, and offered to immediately ship me out another speedbead or a 336 mount for a drill and tap solution. I opted for the latter. I wo...

Re: Which Choke?

I run a Rem SF HS .675 in my 1187. It throws great patterns with 2 oz handloads of 8s (260/188) and 9x8s (306/248). Wouldn't want it any tighter. I have an IC .665 for that gun but have never even shot it with TSS, I am so pleased with the Rem choke.

Re: why 9 over 8 tss?

I have found the same to be true of duplex loads, but IMO are not worth the trouble unless you need to get rid of some bigger shot (8.5s in my case). If you use a shot trap, it is a real PIA to separate the sizes of duplex loads. So I keep all that reclaimed mixed shot in a separate bottle to load ...

Re: Never walk to a dead gobbler without your gun

Happened to me this year in Ky. Was hunting right on the edge of a cut cornfield. Shot a bird that got suspicious and started fast walking at 45 yds with a 1.625 oz load of TSS 8.5s over 9s. Bird was coming on a string and set to pass by me at 25 yds when he saw something he didn't like (late aftern...

Re: why 9 over 8 tss?

No need to shoot anything bigger than 9s in TSS unless req'd by law. Currently loading 1&5/8 oz 8.5s over 9s in my 12 ga til I use up all the 8.5s ( bought the 8.5s advertised as 9s, but they were oversize). Then I don't plan to load anything but 9s; 345/10 will get it done as far as I need it to.

Re: Favorite 12 gauge load

I get between high 300's and low 400's with Hal's 2.25 load depending on which choke I use. It is a smoker. I got 370/320 pattern with Barry's 2.25 ounce load. I have only shot it with a .680 in Browning Gold. You can't find a more simple recipe to load. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180410/9e...

Re: Poa / poi question

Yes absolutely different loads can shoot to varying POI. It is incumbent on the hunter to shoot the load he plans to hunt with to verify POI. If you don't have enough of those shells to do that, then ethically you should not hunt with them. I would submit that it is more critical to do so with TSS t...

I imagine that since the federal version of tss is softer and pliable with pliers, that it would shoot a tighter choke than say Tommy’s TSS or Apex’s
Interesting. I hadn't heard that.
