Tried the TPS wad today

Postby Norsky » Sun Jul 07, 2013 5:02 pm

I only shot 5 of these but it seems to be following a pattern of performance.

This is the same load I had from before but I subbed the MM1035 for the TPS wad. 3 slit and #47 buffer. 66 F steel in there. Chris don't give up on the Remington hulls.

Love me some TPS wads. I've been shooting pretty much just them for a couple years now in both my 12 and 10. I'm impressed with what that 705 does with those big pellets. I'm curious,what made you chose them over T or BBB?

Nothing really. It is the last of the F steel that I have. For some reason the F patterns in the .705. It just defy's all gun/choke logic. I have 2 bottles of T to shoot now. BBB-F will kill well past 100 yards. Some sizes just pattern better with choke/wad/barrel groupings. I forgot to say that there was no dents in the bottom of the TPS wads from the big pellets.

It took me quite a bit of work to get the F steel to finally pattern like that, went through like 9 different choke tubes before it worked with the .705 Terror.
Problem I found with F steel is you don't get enough pattern density at range to really have an effective load....Joe
This was the final result after finding out the .705 was the choke to use...

Have you tried BBB and T at 70 yet with the 705? If so, what were your results?

If you are using a recipe that is for the MM or MEC wad, you can use the TPS wad and leave eveything else the same. The MM, MEC and TPS wads develop the same pressure.

34%@80yrds F... 70% @60yrds with T/BBB ,gives a great indication of optimum to extreme 10ga performance effective distances using standard steel shot,plenty far enough and better than most end users could cope with.
how you get that .705 to work is beyond me,mine got melloned.. :yes:
great 10ga work as ever :thumbsup:

Anyone tried the 1 5/8 oz F's in the Briley Lfull .745? Do you think .745 Briley Lfull \is to tight and may have issue in bridging of F shot? Are you using the Alliant recommended powder charge of Steel. What brand of buffer are you using, and do you take out some shot to compensate for the weight of the buffer? Are you using the longer new Remington hulls? I have alot of the shorter once fired Remington hulls! 10tenner

I have used the 1 5/8oz Alliant loads with T but not F with the Briely LF. It patterns very well IMHO. No sign of choke creap. I used the yellow base wad as thats what it called for as I remember. I also used the black basewad (drab olive hull) in that load with no issues. I did not use buffer in it. It was loaded as listed save the hull varation.

I use #47 BPI buffer. They were the newer Remington hulls sold from BPI and Reloading Specialties.

One thing that I noticed at 30 yards and even 50 yards was flyers outside the ring!
One would think that the large pellets would hold together better than that?

There is the Good, Bad and the Ugly, right there............... just show how a slight
change can bring a pattern around to be workable.

Finding hits outside the 30" circle at 50 yards and beyond is normal. Getting a load to pattern 100% at 50 is unheard of. You are right, big pellets do tend to shoot tighter patterns and do so with less choke constriction on the norm. Just recently, a fellow DHC member asked me for a recipe using the components he had on hand. As it turned out, the load I gave him was an old BPI recipe that is no longer listed but safe and a good recipe just the same. On three 50 yard patterns with this recipe, with 1 1/2oz of T shot, unbuffered, he had 89%, 90% and 93% patterns. This is outstanding. I was impressed! Yes, it had flyers outside the 30" circle. Patterns at 30 yards dont count IMO. When he tested this recipe, he was shooting the same gun and choke as me. Gold10 w/ Briley .745 and he did send me the pattern pics to confirm. I was impressed again from seeing the pics.
