Something to consider , once the payload leaves the barrel the difference between 2 3/4" and 3" loads is your ability to put it on target !
Size , density and velocity of the pellet determines distance , but , recoil can help or ruin your success !
Agree 100% about recoil, I've always shot 300wm and the highest dram Shells i could find. But in my older years the body doesn't like the high recoil and I'm aware of it. So mild is good anymore. I wish tss was cheaper. I think with some tss loads i wouldn't need to push them as hard. Maybe I'll buy a couple of pounds to see how it does.
Thank you Ravename for your knowledge

WARNING!!!

DO NOT buy any TSS!

You will be forever addicted to what it’s capabilities are and there’s no known cure.

Lol, that's what I'm afraid of. I don't shoot that much, maybe I'll load my shells with it and not tell the others i load for ;-) .

The evolution of payloads have come full circle and one's ability to maintain advantage can be a , Plus or Minus !
Back in the days when electro-plated hard lead (Buffered) was the Holy Grail in the marshes , it took trigger-time to become better than
average . I not only hunted after work but took time off , to wonder around each hunting season as I was second oldest of 8 boys in my
family . Mom was always appreciative of whatever I brought home (within reason) and was very particular how it was processed to be cooked .
Mom was old-school , she could prepare just about anything for the table that tasted Good as , she was a southern girl raised in the
backwoods of south Louisiana . As they say , we were raised on how , to skin a buck , run a trout-line and survive .
As we get older , it's fun to think back and brag a little of our accomplishments and shooting straight is one I crow about to this day . haha !
I can say , it's not the Arrow or the Bow even though I'm a gun hunter that brings success but the knowledge of the game you're after , along
with , whether you can "Put it on them" when the time comes . Those who try to shoot beyond their ability , use to keep ammo less expensive
but , not these days ! The industry is trying to survive this Administrations Liberal BS , so , keep shooting what you can afford and make a point
of , practicing to shoot for success , within your ability ! just saying

What is your fps out of that load? Seems like it would be a slow load. I'm using 3 more grains of powder and getting 1475 fps. Your wad height ok? Sure I would like to use less powder. Got a few MM wads left maybe I'll load 1 up today and chronograph it.

It does go faster loaded in a 2 3/4" hull with 465 grs of 3's !

1 ounce at 1400 doesn’t kick and is perfectly effective.

Says a man who can shoot…..

The cure is realizing one isn’t a good enough shot to justify $3-$5-$8 a trigger pull. And if you can’t hit squat at 30 you don’t need TSS unless you wanna shoot a .410. I know you can shoot…
