Re: 28 ga. & .410 turkeys

Mike, whatcha you doing with two barrels?? Nice bird. Steve, you've abandoned your single-shot for two barrels, too. If two birds come in you can always reload and shoot again with the single shot. ;) Gil

Re: #7 HW x #9 TSS Duplex ?

Good point about pressure variance. I am a stickler for pressure limits. However, for how much pressure it took for Tom Roster to blow up an 870 3" 12 ga., this was surprising:

Re: #7 HW x #9 TSS Duplex ?

According to this thread, smaller shot on the bottom. However, I don't know one way or the other about shot of unequal size AND density. Probably doesn't make a lot of difference. Gil

Re: #7 HW x #9 TSS Duplex ?

If you are planning to use  #7 HW 13 , you'd get the same shot count using 1.7 oz. of straight #9 TSS. At 1100 fps, #7 HW 13 has  a limit of 1.5" of penetration at 40 yards.  TSS 9, 58 yards.  Straight TSS 9 with the proposed duplex count of shot would  weigh 1.7 oz.  Straight TSS 9 at 1.7 oz. is a ...

Re: Latest Pinhoti

I may have told this before but it's worth repeating. Decades ago on a large military base that permitted public access by written pass, two outlaws built a blind and baited it with buckwheat.  This was over 40 years ago.  They agreed that neither would hunt it until the following Wednesday when the...

Re: Coronavirus aka Chinavirus

Lessons to be learned from Italy. Naysayer politicians urged citizens to live life normally and the public bought into the naysayers. That price is being paid. Yesterday, 600 dead. Today, 793. Bodies are being stacked in churches. Hospitals are past being overwhelmed. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03...

If you think it is no worse than the flu or common cold, google "Fusco virus" . A family of 11 adults attended church with their 73 year-old mother in NJ where it is believed the contagion spread.

I shot TSS 10s last year and will be shooting them this season as well. 6 birds last years with the farthest being 43 yards all with 10s. They are killers.

I guess this is as good as any to write of this. My offline maps wouldn't show my location with the blue dot. Customer service gave me a couple of things to try including turning off "battery saver" which was the issue. Gil
