Federal Premium Heavyweight TSS Turkey Shotshells
« on: June 04, 2021, 10:42:30 PM »
Was at Sportco this morning and saw they had quite a bit of TSS in stock.
Just thought I would say something if anyone wanted to get a box or two for fall or next year.

Also, thanks for all the advice on diaphragm calls earlier this spring. I figured out what I was doing wrong...
I had them in backwards.

Had a few good hunting trips this season.

1st was over in the kettle falls area, went April the 14th through the 18th, saw a few, heard a few gobbles in the distance but no action. So mostly it was a fun camping trip with my father in law.

2nd was in concunully, went April 29th through the 2nd. The same story, saw a few, heard a few, but we did get on top of one gobbler the 1st morning but couldn't get him to play ball. I think he was within a hundred yards. But we did kill like 40 trout at the reservoir.

Anyway, there is always next year, and if it wasn't challenging it wouldn't be fun, right?

Mat.

I saw those but did you see the price?  Something like $58 a box.  I bought mine early 2020 and they were $28.

Ya, I grabbed a box Russ, looked at the price, and immediately put them back. Plus my over and under in chambered for 2 3/4.

@Russ McDonald

Now I gotta ask....   how many shells per box?

I've thought about trying the stuff, but it is expensive....

Iíll stick with the Longbeard XRís for the price. I killed my bird at 53 yards and cartwheeled him backwards. If youíre shooting a 410 I could see wanting to shoot the TSS but theyíre too expensive for little to no benefit if youíre me shooting a 12 gauge.

That's pretty much what I was thinking.
If there was a 25% premium or something, I's like to try TSS.

As it is, I shoot 3 1/2"  #6.

My turkeys die from 5 feet to 35 yards, so I can't see spending the money.

I am shooting 3"  Federal TSS 12 ga 9 shot first time this year.   When I bought them they were about the price of a box of XR Long Beards.  Rolled my bird down the hill 20 yards.  Dan-O no reason to shoot those 3 Ĺ" unless you like to punish your shoulder 😏😜.

The XR longboards are 10 round boxes. I get thatís itís awesome stuff and I donít mind paying for awesome stuff. Just donít feel like the cost is warranted if youíre shooting a 12 gauge.
And I agree that all Dan-O is doing is punishing himself with those 3.5Ē rounds.

Some guys punish themselves by hiking 10 miles into the wilderness.

I sleep in a trailer, and get all my punishment in a split second.    :chuckle: :chuckle:

I will say, that I shoot 3 1/2" at ducks and geese as well.   
A good day hunting them can result in a sore shoulder for me, but I just can't seem to shoot anything but the biggest possible shell.   If they made 3 1/2" low base 8-shot, I'd probably use it for doves...... :yike: :yike:

Well @Dan-o I can load you some 3 1/2 #8 if you like. I've done 3 1/2 10 gauge with 2 1/4oz of #8 for a friend who only shoots a 10ga for everything. You should see the mess a 10ga with #2 steel does on a quail or Wilson Snipe.
