Hello all,
I am jsully. I live and hunt in northeast Arkansas. I primarily hunt Mallards. I have been looking at the new Hevi X ammo and saw where it is only 9g/cc. That turned my search in this direction. I have never reloaded any waterfowl ammo but I have loaded tons of dove loads years ago when I lived in Alabama. I am curious as to how well the duplex loads tend to perform at 25-40yd ranges. I also am curious as to the price of TSS obviously I know it is higher than steel hence the question about duplex loads.

Hello Jsully,

I'm new this spring to loading TSS duplex loads but I'm pleased with patterns, tighter than straight steel. I'm getting over 90 pct 40 yard patterns in a 30 inch circle with 2 3/4 inch 7/8 oz BBB steel under 1/4 oz 7.5 TSS for geese. I have also loaded duck loads with steel 2's and 9 TSS but have not patterned yet.

Hal's 2 3/4 inch 7/8 oz steel with 1/4 oz TSS pattern better than the 3 inch 7/8 oz steel with 3/8 oz TSS in my gun/choke combos. I have been using skeet, and light modified tubes with negligible difference in pattern between tubes on goose loads.

Personally speaking, if your shots are between 25 - 40 yards, TSS is overkill. Most of my shots in Kansas are 35+ yards.

I'm new here too. Coming from Georgia we get mostly woodies. Going with a friend to Miss this fall. Need suggestions for good light recoiling 20 ga. for decoy and pass shooting mallards. Have had neck surgery and shoulder problems so trying a 20 this year in a Mossberg sa-20 for starters.
