Not my setup, but hes using #9 tss shot. Its some nasty stuff!

If i qas betting id say he was probably running about a. 570 constriction choke. The choke is a guess im 100% on the shot size

It is a Youth Rem 1100 2 3/4" chamber, with a primos jelly head .570 choke, shooting 1 5/8 oz of TSS #9.

Has he killed birds with it yet? Its a great looking pattern but, imHo, i wouldnt even consider shooting a turkey with 9 shot past 20 yards. I dont even like 7 shot. How much energy can a pellet that small retain

TSS is alot denser from my readings and search ! You will be surprised at the penetration capability of this stuff. Much much better than one would expect, im sure there are some youtube vids check it out !

Tss #9 retains enough energy at 1100 fps to kill WAY over half a football field. WAY over

Looks awesome Chris, thanks for sharing. How was the recoil? I'm guessing not bad.

TSS #9 will out penetrate copper plated lead #4 at 40 yds.

Not to bad, I'd say some where between a 12 ga light dove load and a high brass 12 ga load. I plan on letting my 7 year old use it this year, but he will practice with 20 ga dove loads.
