Patterns - 01/16/15 07:30 PM

With the season only a couple months away a lot of folks seem to be looking for setups.

It would nice to see what folks are shooting and results. If you feel inclined how about putting up your combo and pic of your pattern for all the people looking.

870 compact in 20ga. 21" barrel, RSF .572 choke and 1 5/8 oz if tss 8's. This is my best 40 yd pattern so far. However this pattern is pre-polishing the barrel. I'll get the trap out and shoot a few more once it warms a little.



Here it is at 20yds. Just for giggles and why not? smile. 327 in the 10".

3toe, you have a lot of wiggle room with that 20 yd pattern. And that 40 yd is awesome with the 8s.

Here's a couple 40 yd patterns from new guns that I hope to kill one with this year:

.410 Yildiz O/U, 26" barrel, factory full, TSS 9-1/2s


28 ga Franchi 48AL, 26" barrel, factory full, TSS 9-1/2s

Re: Patterns - 01/19/15 01:19 PM

Both of those are smoking patterns.

On the 20yd pattern and wiggle room, not sure I follow. Thoughts?

Last year's setup:

Stoeger 3500, 28" barrel, Primos Tightwad, 3" MagBlends - 206 hits in a 10" circle at 30yds. for this year, I'll be toting a Winchester 1300 because it's a full 3lbs lighter. gonna put a tightwad in it and start with the magblends and go from there.

I killed several birds with my 887. I used the factory full and 3.5" mag blends, and got 200ish in a 10" circle at 40.

Re: Patterns - 01/31/15 11:18 PM

crenshaw, i passed a couple opportunities last season at 53-58 yards with this same set up. just wasnt totally confident in TSS. then a buddy and i got a double, i shot mine at 30yds and his ran off. by the time he got on it and shot, the tom was 78 yds. killed him stone dead. i watched him flop with his head laying on the ground with a broken neck. he was shooting the same load i shoot.

tss is amazing
Posted By: crenshawco

Re: Patterns - 01/31/15 11:31 PM

Yep it's bad news on a turkey. I was a little skeptical but pushed the range on my 20 gauge last year one time with very good results. I really don't know why any serious turkey hunter wouldnt shoot TSS. The gap to second best is huge.

I've got a couple of new chokes to pattern this year. I'll post up the pics in here when I do

All I can figure is the remmy only made one frame and sold them with diff barrels. 3toe has seen me shoot it more than once. It feeds but the hull comes out with about a 30 degree angle on the star crimp on 1/4 of it.

I have a buddy running a condor and no problem with 2 chokes. Running pretty much an ex-full and and imp cyl in it. Up close and a reach out and touch ya gun. Go to gobbler nation and look at the pic threads. They make this lab rat look like a student

a 3" shell will chamber in a 2 3/4 chamber easily because of the slanted front of the chamber area to make room for the unfolded crimp after firing. A 3" shell will not have than room for the fired crimp and usually ups pressures.

I think I recall the LT 20 frame is not the same as the regular frame, either way the barrel is cut for 2 3/4 " shells.

You can have to barrel rechambered for 3" shells easily

Re: Patterns - 02/13/15 06:18 PM

Franchi 912 (uses Benelli Mobil chokes) 3.5 12ga at 30yds.

Patterned 6 rounds today (3 brands with 2 chokes). First choke was an Undertaker .665; second was a Truglo .649. Didn't see a considerable difference between the two. The shells were Federal Heavyweights #7, Federal 3rd Degree 567 and Winchester Longbeards in #5.

The good...really impressed with the Winchester Longbeards for the price.
The bad...really UNimpressed with the Federal 3rd Degree (not pictured but results tallied) which are the same price for 5 as compared to 10 Longbeards.

Barrel was cleaned and polished after each shot. Initially drew a 10" circle then redrew around the best group. Inner circle is 4".



It's hard to beat Heavyweights off the shelf. I've found this true in the last 3 gun/choke combos I've patterned. I'll have it leading off with the LB #5 right behind on 3/15.

Gun: Remington 870 Super Magnum
Choke: Remington super full, Carlson Long Beard XR
Rounds: Remington Nitro Turkey 3" #5 1 7/8 oz, and Winchester Long Beard XR 3.5" #5, 2 oz
Targets: BWC PreGame Turkey 12x18
Setup: Laser ranged 35 and 45 yards, sitting, standard Remington bead sights



I shot the nitro turkey loads with the Remington super full, and the XRs with the Carlson choke. I did not switch the loads and chokes.

The results at 35 yards (Nitro on the right, XR on the left):



The results at 45 yards (Nitro on the right, XR on the left):



I think there was a bit of bleed over from the nitro to the XR target on the 45 yard shot, but the results are pretty obvious, none the less. I do want to shoot these again at 25 yards to see if the patterns are too tight on the XR combo, but after this I am pretty comfortable with the round and choke combo.

I think the pattern was so large for the nitro at 45 yards, some of the pellets ended up on the left target (I shot the left first [XR] and the right second [Nitro]). I should have taken the pic after each shot versus hanging the two targets and shooting both.

Mossberg 935 24" barrell with a TruGlo SSX choke. All shots at 40 yards with a light wind.
The pictures are in order
1- Hevi-13 3.5" #7's - 181
2- Hevi-13 3.5" #6's - 171
3- Hevi Magblends 3.5" - 187







While all the loads were relatively close in their 10 inch circle numbers, the #7's had the most even pattern outside the 10 ring as well as in. I wasn't very impressed with the 6's, several holes in the pattern. The magblends did well and held tightest pattern of the three. I'd feel pretty comfortable with any of these loads out to 50 yards.

I shot my Remington this past week and noticed that it was shooting a foot to foot and half low with my new Indian Creek choke with Nitros 4,5x7 load. See first pic at 25 yds.


I took my gun up to Walter Craigs yesterday and they convinced me to try a Jelly Head choke.660 and Long Beards No. 6 shot.


Apparently, the choke was flawed to some extent. I will be using the Jelly Head and the Longbeards this season.

Hello guys and gals.
I'm new and not from Alabama. Please don't hold that against me. I found lots if info here that I enjoyed, so I thought I'd join up. I'll be loading TSS by next year but for now I'm throwing lead. Seen a bunch of patterns hear with #6 and smaller shot but nothing bigger. I thought you all might like this one. Not much room for error but I like em tight.
Win 1300, .660" JellyHead, Win LBXR 3" #4"s 35yards "decoy placement"
Still does 130 in 10" @ 40
Also shot it out to 70 yards to see how it would treat a coyote. 3 shot avg. put 40 in 10". I expect that would put a real hurtin on a turkey killing pos.

Aucoonhunter and I just finished up patterning our 20 gauges. We used a new to us shot trap and out of 5 shots retained 95% of our TSS. Only lost 120 pellets and it's probably stuck in the carpet. I'll let him add his picture and results but they were both great.

Topperz Deluxe: single barrel. tru glo choke. have no idea what .000 it is

30 and 40 and the target is absolutely eat up. at 40 I noticed the load was just a little lower than at 30 so I held a couple inches above the bullseye at 50 and it ate it up. I don't care how many pellets are in that 10 inch circle I just know he's dead as a hammer

My circle isn't exactly 10", I traced the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket and got off a little. Used a ruler and measured 10" and added 6 more pellets to the count THUS my pellet count went up from 332 to 338.

I think so. I'm really tickled. And, to be the first load I tried from it as well! The Remington LT 1100 likes that load too.

Re: Patterns - 04/21/18 05:41 PM

I have been loading TSS for 3 seasons now and can’t seem to get it to pattern. I feel like I’m loading to Hal’s load but am only getting 125 in 10” circle with 12gauge 2oz 8x9. I’m shooting 11-87 with Carlson .687. I’ve tried Rhino .660 with similar results. The same load hasn’t been shot thru other guns with various chokes with similar results. Im only getting 250 in a 20” circle. That leaves about 300 going somewhere else. Any ideas?

think my roll crimp must suck

If you're looking for pattern data and dont see it here, oldgobler forum has a really nice collection broken down by manufacturer. There is also a search function that works really well for particular chokes and loads.
