Do you use mylar wrap on every tss load?

I do. Dont want small tss to get outside the wad slits.

I don't. But I just use .25 oz of TSS at the base of the wad for waterfowl with a duplex load. If I was making turkey loads, I'd probably use mylar. I have a free supply of it at my work. When I send off a urine sample for a drug screen, it goes into a plastic pouch that has a mylar pull strip to expose an adhesive area.

as an FYI: small pellets, 8 and above will go through the cuts (not sure if 7,6,5 etc do too) and score the barrels

I made that mistake and now I have 2 very annoying scores just outside the chamber on my o/u

Depends on the wad and the load. I use it less than I did in the early years....

Definitely with 20 gauge B&P; not sure with the Gualandi but they look a lot thicker so, wouldn't expect that to be the case

also, pretty positive it won't happen with the double wad :D

I was duplexing 10tss on top. When shooting over a chronograph, the metal poles that hold up the diffuser above the chrono kept getting hit from a foot or two away. Meaning I would have shot exiting the barrel and expanding about 8" in less than a foot. Found out the tss was exiting out of the ports of my ported patternmaster choke tube. Choke was ruined
