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.

Not quite the midwest, but the turkey population appears to be way down in the areas I hunt in W. Ky.

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: Done in Kentucky

Just got back from a four day hunt in W. Ky (Crittenden Co). Terrible weather with 35 mph winds, hot one day and cold the next, then rain. Pretty tough sledding. Was lucky to kill one monster (24 lbs). Heard very few gobbles and saw no strutters in fields while driving. Been hunting out there for 5 ...

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.

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...

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?
