It's going to be very interesting to see how long the lugs hold up in the autos mentioned.
What do you think the recoil could be compared to?
Just a hunch, but I’d say a “haymaker” from Iron Mike Tyson in his heyday... :shock:

Re: 20 gauge choke

If an 870 with a 26” barrel and pushing >1.5 oz of TSS thru it, I’d take a Remington Super Full (0.572) to the woods. If I was card shooting, maybe an IC .555

Re: How many fps do you want your loads

Fast as I can stand the equal and opposite reaction on the backside. For me, that’s roughly plus or minus 1100 FPS in a 1-5/8 oz load out of a compact gun.

Overshot Felt

For those of you in the know, when adding filler felt above the shot/buffer what diameter gauge is recommended and why? I’ve seen recipes that prescribe the same diameter as the hull (e.g., 12 ga felt in a 12 ga load) and—differently—smaller diameter felt than the hull (e.g., 20 ga felt above shot i...

Re: TSS Loading Start-up Costs — Revisited

I've never looked at handloading tss because it was a money saving operation. It can be, but only if one handloads a quantity beyond a break even "X" number of shells which requires bean counting to establish that point and disregards the time factor. I handload below that break even point. I handl...

Re: TSS Loading Start-up Costs — Revisited

I would argue that every man needs a drill press anyway, so that should not count in your start up costs. :) Loading your own was the only way to get tss loads for about a decade. With the availability of commercial loads, just buying them may be a better option for some people. I'd still rather lo...

TSS Loading Start-up Costs — Revisited

I was looking back at a year-old thread about TSS reloading start-up costs. In the comparatively short while I’ve been doing it, I’ve spent a small fortune. Let me see...I’ve bought: 1) a funnel; 2) 2 scoops; 3) 1 set of digital scales; 4) 1 powder trickler; 5) 1 hull vise; 6) 2 crimper dies; 7) 1 d...

Re: 12 ga 2 3/4” tss loads

The first load I came up with back in '06 with the 9s was a 2-3/4" 1-5/8 oz 12 ga load for my brother's old Wingmaster. It was a gun he won in the 80s in a biggest deer contest. Anyway, he killed two with it the next spring in TX that were much farther than polite company will talk about when he ba...

Re: 20 ga. 1-5/8 TSS vs. Same in 12 ga.

Since originating this post several months ago, I’ve loaded and shot a few 1-5/8 oz loads through my 12’s. Let’s just say I’m back in love with the big bore. Simpler loads, more balanced and consistent patterns than those I was getting by trying to squeeze the same amount of shot through a sub gauge...

Re: Carlson .555 for rem 870 21 inch barrel?

Been down that road. Go with the .575 nonported. .565 and .555 nonported choke patterns in a 21 inch barreled 870 20 gauge were blown pretty bad in my experience. .575 shot lights out. More than tight enough. That’s consistent with my observations of a .555 constriction as well, unless you’re shoot...

Any Downside to...

Any downside to shooting a short shell in a long chamber? In a shotgun, mind you :oops: How about a 2-3/4” TSS load out of a 3-1/2” chambered 12 ga? With some of the relatively slow-burning powders used in hand loads, might it have implications for wad seal and performance? Other considerations???
