From the muzzle loading encore 12g

Here is my load that is shooting so well. These are the numbers from my Ballistic Products Invoice
70grs 777 powder in Encore. In TK2000 use 80grs.
2oz TSS
OB12 gas seal Item :02012
CSD100 shot cup Item :0207100
BSB-ITX Buffer 20 grains Item :BSB
Felt Wad 12ga 1/8" Item :1221812
A thin cardboard over the felt is needed because of the weight of the TSS. DON'T LEAVE OUT THE FELT or you will shoot a doughnut pattern

Clean bore thoroughly between shots. Remove your choke tube. Use a long funnel to keep powder out of your threads. Add powder. Seat OB12 gas seal on powder firmly but don't beat it to death. Run a patch with bore butter down the barrel. Some guns will allow you to fill the shot cup then push the full cup down the barrel. This makes it nice because I can see that buffer is distributed equally. If yours won't don't try to shoot with out the buffer. The shot won't be flush with the top of the cup. I have loaded it both ways and found that the patterns are more even if you can load the cup. Seat the felt over the charge. Mop the bore with bore butter after loading. It adds between 50 and 70 fps to your velocity. It also makes cleaning much easier. Reinstall choke tube. Shoot a turkey.

Choke is a Carlson .640"
The Muzzle-loader needs a tighter choke with TSS than a cartridge shotgun which prefer slightly open like around .665"

Firing pin broke. I was going to take it as a single shot but couldn't make myself do it. I had to build a new pin. Had to order a wore out one to get dimensions.

here is the one I bought with the new one I made. Tool steel.

All that work just to load a black powder shotgun. Now that's dedication.

It actually brings some kind of weird satisfaction.

The same reason we all hunt with handguns. Congrats again.

Sort of the same thing as handgun hunting. I have numerous turkey guns. I have a couple that are phenomenal. I have got to the point that I carry one for a back up in the truck but hunt with antique stuff or muzzle loaders.
