60 yard +/- coyote with TSS #6 this morning. Would measure it off exact but he was standing in a mowed field. Large male, first round knocked him over, second round up the tail pipe as he was adding yardage fast. Guessing the second shot was 75 yards. He made the tree line and ran out of gas. That's an RSI-25 recipe. 1-5/16 oz moving at 1,400 fps out of my "truck gun". A 12 gauge Ruger Red Label with Carlsons "close range" and Imp. Cylinder chokes in it.

Nicely done on the yote!
Yeah I got a bird shooting TSS 9 this year with a 1 5/8 oz load dropping down to a 3/4 oz load for next season with the 20ga. Going to get the wife outfitted with TSS for next season shooting either a 1 1/2 oz or 1 1/4 oz of 9ís. Thinking on possibly starting to reload for the TSS for next season. What are you paying per pound, I can get 9ís for $52/lb

Somewhere between $45-$60/lb. depending on quantity.  Hal had a special on it last year if you bought 5 pounds but I can't access those PM's due to a lost password.  I think my overall average is right at $50. 

I don't shoot a bunch of it but I don't think twice about letting the stuff go when something needs whacking.  I have a couple shell holders in 20 and 12 that have TSS in the bands.  #3 is like having 100 pellet count buckshot loads.  The stuff is wicked good.

The price I was quoted was from Tommy aka Shooter on the other forum.
I have never reloaded shot shells before. But thinking I may want to start, you roll crimping or stars?

I can roll crimp 20, 12 & 10 gauge.  I have 600jrs for everything but 16.

A lot of the recipes call for roll crimps.  If the data specifies roll crimps, star crimping will increase pressures.  If the recipe specifies star crimps, roll crimping will lower pressure.  Precision roll crimpers are supposed to be superior to the BPI product.

I'm going to be ordering more shot this year.  Most of the TSS I'm shooting is size #6 and that bottle is almost empty.  #6 is really too big for turkeys but noone else but  8) turkey hunters understand the need for TSS.  Y'all are special  :chuckle:

Hal last quoted me $53 for one pound delivered to my zip code.  There is an additional premium on 9-1/2, 10 and 11 sized shot.
If you bump the quantity up, the price per pound goes down.

Honestly Iím there with ya on the 9 shot being the perfect size. I need to get my 20ga completely set up for next season. Plus get the wifeís 12ga set up as well with TSS and maybe put the Red Dot on it.
Looking at getting an Indian Creek choke tube for the 20 then possibly her 12ga also.

I dropped a bunch of loot on several different shells to pattern for my son.  By far, the best pattern was Winchester XR Longbeards which also happen to be half the cost of most of the premium loads and that's just fine for me.



How did they work on live birds? I had some for my son this year and they patterned well but he shot one bird that ran away it was probably at his max range then he shot another one at 15 yards max and it was running hard too he shot it again right away. Anyways he go his two birds with it but i was not real impressed with the actual knock down power. He shoots a 20 gauge.
