Looking to load 3 1/2 12 gauge

Postby Tommy08 » Mon Apr 30, 2018 9:18 pm

Hello, all I’m a new member have shot hevi shot looking to start shooting TSS. From what I’ve searched pretty close to double the amount of pellets over hevi shot.

According to my KPY Shotshell Ballistic program there is 893 TSS #9 pellets in 2-1/2 oz of shot, 625 TSS #9 pellets in 1-3/4 oz of shot and there is 421 #6 shot lead pellets in 1-7/8 oz of shot.

If you ever want to know the gel penetration and pellets counts comparing lead shot to Hevi-Shot and TSS shot, just ask. I will need to know what types of shot and the sizes of shot, what the shot weight is and the fps of the load.

1-1/2 oz of Hevi-Shot #4 shot at 1250 fps gets 1.50" of gel penetration at 79.8 yards and there is 187 pellets in 1-1/2 oz of shot.

1-1/2 oz of TSS #7 shot at 1250 fps gets 1.50" of gel penetration at 108 yards and there is 274 pellets in 1-1/2 oz of shot.
