Oh my; that is strong! Bound to help a little with the recoil as a bonus.

Very nice! What is the speed of the 1&5/8 oz load and your 1.5 oz mod?

Re: I’m all for free speech..

Our chanterelles in WNC came really early this year. It was all over but the crying in early July. They came in mid June.

Thanks. I'm currently shooting a great 1 5/8 load but was wanting to try a bigger payload to fill the 20 inch a little more.
No offense to you or to Hal intended, but 1&5/8 oz is already a very robust load for a 20 ga. If you need/want more, perhaps you should consider a 12 ga.

Re: Anyone shot Hals MOA load in autos

Thanks guys. Y is it so hard on autos even when its within pressures? Perhaps because the 3" 20 is designed for 1&1/4 oz of shot (though I realize the Fed HW held 1&1/2) and the MOA is pushing 2&1/8 oz. BTW, pressure is not a part of recoil calculations...just gun weight, powder weight, ejecta weig...

Re: Another New Tick Invasion!!

I agree that W Ky is terrible during turkey season in particular. WNC is bad too. Got 2 or 3 off me and dozens on my dog during a Jan. grouse hunt in the mountains of Ashe Co, where there are tons of deer and tons of deer ticks.

I’d try the full choke that came with the gun. It will perform better than the numbers you posted I believe.

My Beretta O/Us have them. I'm fine with the automatic safety on the one I use for hunting. But I had it changed over to manual on the one I use for clays.

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: 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.

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.
