    I killed a turkey @ 50yds with my 20ga and #7.5s this season. Much better on game performance than the #9s. My 12ga still outshines the 20ga, of course. There's not enough weight difference to notice between the two, either.

    Just saw this on Youtube, and no I do not shoot Apex loads (I roll my own) but for those wondering about how effective TSS is, this video shows it being shot into ballistic jell.

    I purchased the Pendleton TSS loads to use specifically when i go reaping. Very impressed even purchased the recommended choke

    I've been loading my own for several years. Killed a lot of turkeys with it. All I've used is #9 and have no reason to try anything else. I've killed birds from 10 yards to 73 steps and I'm 6'2".
    I could write a short book on tss and why I love it.

    It's definitely a game changer. If any of you guys want to get started with it or just need to add to your shot stash, give me a shout. I've been developing loads and selling shot for many years.

    the shells are not cheap(tss #9 federals 6.50 per shell), but over all they can and will take a turkey cleanly at 50 yards. I look at it this way. I want a clean kill and try to limit my shots to 35-40 yards. in the total picture of cost for a day of hunting, breakfast 7.00- snacks 4.00- lunch 8.00- gas at least 3 gallons(2.89 a gallon) and the cost of a license, for me its not the cost but the hunt. if it was about cost I would go to a wise-giant food store and buy a turkey. turkey target 8.5x11" 40 yards, 1-3/4 oz federal tss #9,s.
