TSS Sellers Will Be Wiped Out

Post by Spuriosity » July 7th, 2017, 7:08 am

Latest nugget from the Ancient Male Turkey...Apex Ammo will wipe out the sellers of bulk TSS.

So my question to you...How many of you home rollers of TSS ammo are going to cease loading it and buy all your TSS loads from Apex?

As for me and my household, we will continue to roll our own. :angel4:

Roll baby roll. IMO Apex Ammo will have a difficult time with demand and that will turn off potential customers. Also, in order to make a good profit they need to be charging more, at least 3 times their costs. This will also limit their customer pool. So as with most businesses there is a decent chance they will close up shop before too long. I wish them luck but I can't make the dollars work in my mind. I'll continue to stock pile TSS in my personal reserves.

I would think once your in the hobby. The satisfaction of making your own hunting shells would out weigh buying a box of shells.
I do think the shot sellers will screw up what they have as competition keeps increasing. Probably be replaced by buyers clubs of buddies.

I will continue to "roll my own" as long as I can get the components and shot, with Apex and now Nitro selling TSS loads it will be harder and harder to get components but I think the shot supply will always be there.

I have a feeling you are dead on with your last statement Doug.
My hats off to the Pioneers of the TSS movement ,without two or three of them we would be years behind where we are.
But as time goes on more is learned and the shot isn't very hard to obtain now as compared to when I paid 63.00 @ pound
for it.

I will continue to roll my own! Been loading shot shells for nearly 40 years, and rifle cartridges for over 30 years!!! No need to stop now, and I hope Apex does well, so all my friends that want me to load for them has a place to buy TSS loads!!!

Barring house fire, theft or burying my supply like a squirrel and forgetting where it's buried, I will never shoot up what I have in shot, powder, wads and hulls. I'm in it for the long haul. Gil

IMO, people are cheap and I don't think Apex is going to put a dent in TSS sold to reloaders due to the fact that the shells are so expensive. In fact, it might increase bulk TSS sales if people buy a box of apex and like it and then start figuring out how to load it for 1/2 the cost. Of coarse, this comes from a guy that reloads everything he shoots, so I may be cheaper than most.

Sounds like ancient male turkey may be trolling for some apex advertising! Ain't he afraid it will blow up a gun and he'll get sued?

I've got enough components on hand so that I should not have to purchase any more for the rest of my days of turkey hunting. I will roll on.

Capitalism is good

in the grand scheme of life I personally see Apex and Nitro selling tons of TSS loads

reloading TSS is a small segment of turkey hunting

Facebook has exploded the tss market and many want to buy and don't want to waste time learning how to do it nor spend the money buying everything to load their own.

This time next year the tss market may be a totally different animal.
