    On sale closeout on Rogers for $14.99 a box . Just bought 7 boxes and free shipping. Pass it on! I won’t use lead after using tungsten it is day and night. Hits hard and pattern is dense in a small shot size

    I wish they had it in 20 gauge loads. Best turkey anmo I’ve ever used. Even better than TSS for me.

    Good price. I wish I knew how it patterned in my gun, it's about the only hi-density shot I've never tried. For that price,may give it a shot.

    Try it with a Hevi-Shot brand tube.

    For that price I could shoot em in all of them. I can't hardly afford to do much patterning with TSS at almost $15 a pull.

    I used Nitro when I first switched to the 20 gauge. Great loads. Play time is over. I’d like to try some of their loads again. They’re in Missouri now I believe.

    Now I’ve got nothing against TSS and will be using it this year as I do believe I’m out of Heavyweight 7. That Heavyweight is just as good or better though.

    They are,
    . They are, I emailed him the other day, he sent me some prices , they are crazy high, but my gun has been sighted in with them a long time, the last few years, I have put one of them in the chamber and 2 ling beards in behind it just in case, but I have carried these long beards so long wore they might not even shoot, My x 3 puts around 310 at 40 yards, in a 10 inch circle, I think he is loading some with tss not sure, you can Google at nitroshell company, There may be something out there better, I dont know, but I have killed so many with these cant change as ling as he makes them , but my gun shoots the 6 shot long beard good, and they hit the same place its sighted in for. So if I was gonna sight a gun in, I would definately start with a cheap shell and start about 20 yards to get the pattern where I wanted it, but thats just me, I couldnt afford to start out sighting in, with a expensive shell.

    Sorry flyingnectar, I didnt mean to Jack your post, im getting old and weak minded I reckon , I start writing something on my mind, that really has nothing to do with the original, post, and after I write it, I sometimes say to myself, why did I write all that, when it really dosent pertain to the thread starter.
