    that will kill coyotes, geese, ducks and gobblers all day everyday. 8's are my favorite shot size in TSS

    FOR TURKEYS, the stuff makes perfect sense, especially in sub gauges. More pellets is a huge boon after the greenup in the southern woods for not having leaves decimate a pattern at even short range. In clearings/fields, a 20ga TSS loaf in even the less dense federal factory stuff will kill (and has) to 50 yards, lasered, easy. When talking only 5-15 shells a season (depending on how much travel), it’s more than worth it. I could care less on ducks and geese thus far.

    I’ve only ever shot non-tox stuff, mostly steel for waterfowl. IMO, it kills further than I should be shooting.

    @JPs gonna bring me some loads next time he comes to Decatur. :grvn

    Will bring the pattern sheets themselves.

    Was in Florence week before last (flying trip) as mom broke her other hip and had the replacement surgery. She's doing fine now as when I called yesterday, got the latest gossip, obituaries and weather report. When those line up, she's hitting on all cylinders.
