Made the switch and I will never go back-
Lighter, kicks less, lays birds dead as far as you need to shoot
Tri-star 20 gauge, Leupold 1.5x 4 vx-freedom, Jebs .560, TSS hand loads 1.5 oz #9s
418 pellets in a 10" circle at 40 yards

Thst is unbelievable. Wow. I’m def not confident shooting thst tight if a pattern 28 years deep in turkey hunting. Thst is amazing.

50 yard shots were never condoned even using 10ga. 45yds 10ga, 40 12ga, 30-35 20ga and 16ga, 28 gauge and 410 weren’t even in the table.

I think TSS has made some lousy callers and woodsmen/women but it sure is a game changer. Even Longbeard XR extended the ranges by 10yds across the board.

I’m really looking forward to getting home and patterning mine. 20 gauge Tristar vortex venom red dot, carlsons tss and going with federal tss #9’s, can’t find any apex. They said they might have some later this year

The Federal TSS is always hand in hand with the Apex. Usually Apex edges it out but not enough difference to really make a difference. You won’t be under gunned.

Thats where the Leupold scope comes in- I was a red dot shooter for years, but I have an astigmatism that was starting to give me fits if staring thru it very long. I can adjust the optical relief on the scope and look thru it all day.
 
What is that particular model?
