Hal's 2.75-2oz Stubby Speed Load
I am running it with half 8.5's and half 9's.
Very even patterns

Hal's 1-3/4 ounce 2-3/4" load roll crimped.

I'm using straight 8's currently, but I am out of shot and will order T9's next go round.

I tinkered with my loads constantly until Hal’s 2.25 oz 3inch twelve gauge load. I didn’t even pattern some of the other loads I had built up after seeing its performance. It’ll be the one for a long time. Probably build a .410 at some point but can’t beat perfection.

Buy some tss from him and he will share the recipe.

I am loving this 2 3/4” Tennessee Twister load from shooyer. It’s not just a paper shredder..

I am too cheap to help with the tss thing. I have a lead load that does good out to 50 or so out of my gun. Looking forward to trying shooters load out of the 20. Waiting on the wads.

Anyone else have a good lead load? Mine is a 3.5" load.

Contact shooter on here. Buy some TSS from him. It's the easiest recipe that I've ever used and it's bad to the bone!

What shot count are you getting with Hal’s 3 in 2/1/4 load I am shooting his 3/1/2 in 2/1/2 oz. I have the 3 in recipe but not loaded it yet.

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.

Yeah that's a mean load. I shot it once out of my Browning Gold Hunter Kicks 680 got 417/10. Probably my favorite 12ga load is Hals 3" 2oz #9.

Man I hate it when people ask me about those 2.25oz loads

Shooters BlueThunder shoots so good at 2oz I scratch my noggin and wonder why anyone need another 1/4oz of shot

Consistently getting 420 in the 10 from 2oz and I think that’s overkill. But if someone “needs” more.. go ahead and spend that money. They making tss everyday!

Like I said in the other thread, that’s what 380/oz #9.25s will do for you.
