That's what I'm saying getter done
For my money, if a person is shooting a 12 gauge, stick with longbeards. With the right choke, they hold great patterns way longer than anyone needs to shoot. If you or, more importantly, a kid is shooting a 20 gauge ( I love packing a superlight 20 through the woods instead of my 12 gauge guns), then 7 bucks or so per shot isn't that big a deal in the grand scheme of what I spend on hunting. The on-target results are just that much better.
I put a Carlson turkey choke in my son's Benelli 20 gauge and paired it with longbeard XR ammo. Now it's a shooter. Rolled a bird up last spring at 35 yards with it.
#9 TSS pellets may be great. Two times more pellets to fill in the pattern.
But, each #5 pellet (.00578 Oz. each) weighs two times the weight of #9 TSS (.0027624 Oz. each).
At the same velocity, a #5 pellet should have twice as much down range energy as a #9 TSS.
A tss #9 weighs more than a lead #5. Or maybe not. Woulda swore I read it somewhere. I know they shoot plum thru a Tom at 40 yards
According to what I came up with your right. 1 #5 lead pellet weighs 2.60 grains. 1 #9 tss pellet weighs 1.164 grains. The tss shell is all about density.
What is a good super light 20
They are much more dense than lead.
Those of you looking for a TSS affordable that is top notch design and price look here!
TC Encore, Benelli M1, Franchi Affinity, older Remington 870 that came in Mossy Oak New Break Up, Mossberg Bantam, and others.
The Boss Tom shells how many in a box 5 like others
Has the fish and wildlife department removed the minimum shot size for turkey shells?
I've only ever seen a max shot size regulation for KY (#4)
I don't know, I load my own.
