Re: FF3 How far from face?

As far back as I can get it, increasing the field of view through the sight. So I guess you are just going to have to try it and lock it down where it seems best to you.

Re: Convenient hearing protection while hunting

Been wearing ESP analog units for 25 years. Only time I don't wear ear protection is grouse and turkey hunting because...1) I don't shoot that much and 2) I create a lot of noise walking through heavy cover, making it hard to hear when a bird gets up. I do have significant hearing loss in my left ea...

Re: tss 10 shot effective range?

Most handloaders load to around 1100 fps at the muzzle. Launched at that speed, a TSS 9 is moving at 615 fps at 50 yds and will still penetrate 1.82" which is way more than sufficient penetration to kill a turkey. TSS patterns tightly enough that most of the load will hit the head and neck if you do...

Re: tss 10 shot effective range?

I don't shoot TSS but I've got a few questions. If 1100 fps is tha standard for penetration calculations that's at the impact of the shot right? So if the load starts at 1150 at 50 yards your going to be less than 1100fps has anyone done the math on that? It's been said here and I've seen it elsewh...

Re: tss 10 shot effective range?

Agreed - 10s for the .410 bore only. Nines for all other turkey hunting applications where legal.

Re: Mounting a FF3

I like mine back as far as I can. The sight can be mounted a long way from your eyes and still work just fine, especially if you shoot with both eyes open. I am cross dominant and close my left eye when I shoot (rt handed). In that situation it is very helpful to have the sight closer to your eye.

Re: Cleaning spurs for spur chain - talk about nasty

I take a nail just smaller than the 2 openings under the spur & push out the bone marrow & tendons. I then put the spurs in a container with 20 Mule Team Borax making sure the bone & tendon sheath are filled with the borax. I let then sit for a couple of weeks after which I make sure all the borax ...

Re: Thanks to the pioneers of Tss!

For those of you that shoot tss, is Apex better than Federal loads? Also, would you rather shoot the 7x9 or straight 9's and why? Definitely straight 9s. All adding 7s to the mix does is take up space that could be filled with lots more 9s. Adding TSS 7s to a turkey shell is akin to adding #2 lead ...

WTG! Thought this was going to be a thread about someone shooting a scoped Contender or something in .223. But to kill one with with your carry gun is very cool. That is some nice shooting right there.

Looking good. If it's as light as the Yildiz, I don't think I'd want to shoot more than 1&5/8s oz. So I assume you like the new wads?
