TSS : season 2019-2020
For the beginning of the new season 2019 - 20, the TSS still proves its effectiveness.
Many testimonials show that the TSS is the ultimate shot for hunting waterfowl.
A teal tonight 54 meter with a 24gr # 9 taken by laser
Hi Olivier ... I'm always on vacation in the southwest. And the efficiency of tss is still fly ... 4/6 shovelers at 80-85 m
Hi oliver. A nice morning the 21st for the opening. A first night on the pond with for us a teal taken at 55 m with a tss 36 gr in #9.
On the opening day, a clean killed teal with an 8.5 in 40 g, at 68 m telemetry.
Hi oliver, how are you? super happy .. A shoveler at 70m ... Pellet #8 in 32 gr ... clean kill.
The tss hit again in the early morning at about 55-60 meters! 34grams ball of 8
"Small Mallard shot at 88 yrds with a 40g #7. It did not move a paw .. my colleague's father remained on the ass! It was at the end of the evening it was still day and I had my rangefinder with me."
How to choose the TSS size ?
Each chart corresponds to a game. The distances are in column and the size of TSS in raw.
In each cell, there is the load necessary to respect the pattern density of pellets necessary to reach the game with the appropriate number of balls (generally 4,2 on average and 8 in the center).
For a wingeon, for exemple, this minimum pattern density is 180 balls in a circle 30" in diameter. You can also find in column the number of balls for 10 g of shot.
When the cell is in white, it is because the penetration is not sufficient for the game considered. When it is in blue, it is that it is the optimal charge in simple shot. In green, it works too but it is not optimal.
In fact, using the chart, you can know what you should shoot if you know the distance and type of game. For example, a vingeon duck at 60 m will be killed with a 29 gr of 9 1/2 but it is relatively border line for the penetration level. With 9, it will increase to 34 grams to ensure the pattern density of 180 balls.
