NH has prohibited any gauge smaller than a 20 but this year has changed to allow 28 and .410 with TSS type shot. It would be pretty cool to carry a .410 weight wise.

This TSS shot thing has me wondering. I looked at a 12ga. 2 3/4" load the other day and it claimed 1140 fps. No info on pressure. Would love to shoot it in my GH 32" Vulcan steel gun but scared to death of what the pressures might be.

the tss shot is a turkeys night mare.it pattern much better than lead in a right choked barrel but not too tight....those no 9 s are my choice for turkeys....I hope I don't have to give up my big guns for a 410 turkey gun...charlie

Here is the results of the NH youth weekend opener. My grandson Riley's 2nd year turkey hunt was a good one. The birds were not shot with a parker ,he used a 20 ga Charles Daly O/U choked F/M with 1 oz of 6's. 1st bird a 14 lb jake at 8 yds and 2nd bird 2 hrs later was a 22 lb with 8.5 beard and 1 inch spurs shot at 35 yds. I love turkey hunting !!:)

I have been using #8 TSS 7/8oz and 1oz loads in my 12ga Parkers with damascus barrels for the past two years. With 2 3/4" shells using 16-16.4 grains of Red dot, a Remington STS primer, the pressure is 6100 PSI. The DH with D4, 30 in barrels weighs 8.4 pounds. I use a cut down wad for steel shot with a mylar sleeve and buffer in with the shot; there is virtually no recoil with this load at 1200 fps. #8 TSS is equal to #3 lead due to its density, no shot deformation and with much less frictional drag the patterns are exceptional. Further, when you hit a turkey with these loads the are dead. All the shot goes completely through the bird; they never kick or flap when you pick them up; stone dead. And, virtually no damage to the barrels. Devastating turkey and goose load.

Are there any low pressure TSS factory 12 or 20ga 2 3/4" loads available out there ?

charlie cleveland 04-25-2022 06:21 PM
