lots of sizes, lots of lab tested load data

Postby hawglips » Tue May 03, 2016 5:07 am

I try to keep the following sizes on hand year-round:

10
9-1/2
9
8-1/2
8
7-1/2
7
6
5
4
1
BB

Check with me on the current prices and availability via PM, or email to hganc@aol.com.

I have dozens of lab tested load data which I provide to those who are getting their shot from me - including .410, 28, 20, 16, 12 and 10 gauge. And I am constantly developing new loads. I'm currently working up some 20 ga loads loads using wads other than the PT2090 which has been my favorite for waterfowl data in the past. I'm also working on more light 12 ga loads to fill in some data gaps.

Loyal repeat customers will get a nice discount from mid May through June (5 to 10 lbs orders), so the next few weeks will be a good time to stock up.

Thanks Hal!


Roll with it. If you stay above 55 the wheel wont fall off.

What would you use BB-5 TSS for? 4 legged game?

#1s and BBs are good sizes for deer. The first "buckshot" loads (1-1/2 oz, 1235 fps MV) I developed were using #1s. A buddy tested one the next day. He was in a stand and had a small buck come out to what he estimated to be about 50 yds. He had my TSS #1 load in the chamber, and then had lead #00 buck in the chamber. He shot the deer, which was knocked over, then got back up. He shot it again with the #00 buck. The deer ran off about 50 yds and expired.

He ranged the distance at 67 yds, after the fact.

He cleaned the deer carefully and found that 16 TSS #1 pellets had hit the deer. He found 3 of them still in the deer, under the skin on the off side. The rest passed through. He found that 1 of the #00 buck had hit the deer in the abdomen and was still in the gut.

#4 and #5 are good coyote sizes.

I reloaded some TSS #1 shot and TSS #4 shot to use on coyotes. I have not shot any of the TSS #1 at coyotes yet.

I have killed 4 or 5 coyotes with the TSS #4 shot. I will never forget killing a broadside coyote at 68 steps away with 1-1/2 oz of TSS #4 shot.

The coyote was coming in to my e-caller on the downwind side and stopped and put his nose up in the air. I knew I needed to shoot quickly before the coyote ran off.

When I shot this coyote it dropped stone dead and what was really cool was the slope of the hill went up behind the coyote so I saw the tight pattern hit the ground about 20 yards past the coyote. I have never seen a tight pattern from a shotgun hit the ground that hard at close to 90 yards away.

Just got some #10s to keep in stock.

They run about 500/oz. They will be a very good size for small ducks and/or small bored guns.

At 1400 fps MV, they will give 1.5" penetration at 56 yds (32 deg and sea level), similar to #1 steel - but 5 times the pellet count. Or hevishot #6s, but 3 times the pellet count.

Interesting have you done any pattern work with them yet?

No, but it's on my short list. I've got a bunch of new loads I'm trying to evaluate, but have been running real low on range time due to travel this summer. I hope to shoot some next weekend, but I'm waiting on some lab test results on 8 more loads, plus 4 more that I need to prepare for the lab first. I have a buddy shooting some of the 10s and I'll share what he sees if he gets to them before I do. The general rule with the smaller sized TSS is that the shot will pattern a little wider the smaller you go down. So, I expect these will be the same, generally speaking.

I am new to the TSS forum. Please forgive me if I'm in the wrong category. How would I go about purchasing some TSS shot and load data?
