  1. Yes it's old data,it was sent to me by pictures from old clay game manual,so not sure of era. Would you recommend a drop in powder ?👍
  2. Thanks for replies lads, so ya think Cx2000,37.0grn ao ,nitro card,fibre wad ,1 5/8oz lead be ok then?
  3. Looking at knocking up some cartridge and data uses the above wads (waa209) ..... I can't find any info on them, it's old data from clay game book, 1 5/8oz lead with AO powder. Is there a primer I could use instead of this?
  4. Is that the guy "10gaugenut" or something like that off the USA sites?
  5. At similar pellet count in the 1oz, tss 18 #6 = 139 to Oz Lead #4 = 135 to Oz... So these pellet's must be similar in density each pellet? ( Is that right??) IV battered my own head looking at numbers and data with this stuff now. So how does the tss over so much more downwind energy?? I know it's slightly smaller so less friction per pellet, but it isn't that much difference, is it due to the hardness of the shot??? I'm starting to think it's witchcraft 😂
  6. Yes,your right...that makes perfect sense...I don't have any so can't weigh them individually, I got the weights and pellet count off www earlier...
  7. It was for comparison, an individual #7 tss weighs more than a lead #AAA pellet... The #7 has 185 pellet's to ounce, the AAA has 37 to ounce...
  8. Did you pattern the shells through Aya? Be interesting to see them compared to the smaller tight choked patterns from smaller gauged guns that are on youtube
  9. It's hard to tell if it's an improvement on clip, but certainly seems to put plenty on the paper at 60-70 yards.... The obviously use a smaller pattern plate area than us over here , (turkey head as opposed to our 30" circle) but that looks as tho it would still be giving a nice even pattern at 70 yards
  10. Looking at the pattern on that pic,is it a duplexed load? Some of the holes look different sizes
  11. Can the tss be fired in old fixed choked guns? Or is steel proofed only?with it being much smaller shot can you still get the issues of bulging?
  12. Yes,agree with that ,not a very even pattern,seems to be very top heavy... On the American sites there patterns with tss and small bore guns with tight chokes are unreal...
  13. Ok, so a 1oz load of tss18 #7 has similar shot count and pellet density to a 4oz load of #AAA lead.... obviously the lead would leave a bigger wound pattern ,but the tss should pattern much better therefore giving multiple strikes... So a .410 1oz load of tss out performs a 4oz load from a 4 bore, on pattern and pellet density.... Just not on £££££?????
  14. If I'm right in what I'm thinking a tss #7 pellet weighs slightly more than a lead #AAA pellet with 185 to ounce, where aaa is 37
  15. At the minute I shoot #bbb through bps 10 bore with terror choke in, but if the tss18 offers a greater/ more leathul combination I don't mind buying a small bore gun to run some through.,.looking at some of the results/ testing that's been done with the stuff.....a 1oz load of #6 tss18 should be out performing a 4 bore
  16. Thanks for that lancer, I bought the powershot cheap ,only reason I have it.... It's not something I'd buy at the full price....I'll stick to #bbb steel. I may give the tss a try out as I can see that giving a huge advantage over steel, and save it for the days when steel won't cut the mustard.👍
  17. To get hw13 near like for like in density to steel , IV had to get #1 in hw13 and #bbb in steel.. so it's not massive difference in size.. not like tss18 would be ( not sure what # size would be in comparison to #bbb steel). How much further / better killing range does the slightly smaller but slightly heavier hw13 #1 pellet offer over the steel???? The price to me doesn't justify the slight increase it may offer, tss15 or tss18 I get, as your getting much smaller/ denser pellet to outperform steel..
  18. This is a question to those who are clued up on ballistics, IV just been in loading room looking at things and I weighed out a few things.i know these are not the same pellet size but it's what I have to hand. Powershot /hw13 in #1 weighs 0.017 each pellet ,with 58 to the Oz Steel #BBB weighs 0.016 each pellet with 63 to oz Obviously powershot has slight edge in pellet density,but for the cost difference is it worth it? How can that slight difference in weight give much advantage over the steel? I can see the point in tss18 but not the powershot
  19. Hia mate, my father in law is selling s410 , £500 I think, I can find out more if your interested, located barrow in Furness
  20. I use a aya yeoman, choked 1/2 & full, had hundreds of super steel 3&4's through it, it's had up to steel #B also.wouldnt say its punchy and chokes are still same
  21. I recently dealt with this seller, straight forward transaction, no messing about, I sent money.....he sent item, it is in full, looked after working order, nothing to worry about👍🏻
  22. Somebody with a bit of engineering background /know how could make a few quid now if they could design and manufacture a jig to make own wads for the various calibres
  23. Cracking thread lads, very helpful/informative👍🏻.
