Wanted to try tungsten shot for pheasant tower shoots in Florida. Practical alternative to South Dakota, a 3 day drive away. Lab tested 7 different powder loads of 1 oz of #7 TSS15 in roll crimped Fiocchi hulls, CSD 078 wads, Long Shot powder. Single round velocity range was 1594 fps through 1664 fps. Selected load that tested at 1597 fps, 8710 psi for pattern test. Also have #8 TSS18 shot. Loaded 1 round with the #8 TSS18 shot. Set tripod at 58.5 yds from pattern board, as far as range layout permitted. Amazing pattern resulted in 47 of 271 pellets in 10” circle, 74% in 30” circle. Extrapolating vendor’s data suggests 1.5” penetration in ballistic gel at more than 100 yards. I recognize 1 round pattern testing is not ideal, but the TSS pellets are $2.91 per ounce and the Target Telemetrics pattern paper is $4.36 per paper. Recoil is stiff, trap load is 17 lbs free recoil, TSS load is 36 lbs free recoil.
