Worked on a 2.5 oz load of #8 tss yesterday with a biddy and got it rocking. Cannot wait to try it out.

310 in the 10" could have adjusted to pick up a few and got around 325

235 in the 20" circle

This was at 43 yards.

And just think, each one of those #8 TSS pellets has energy and penetration similar to a #5 lead pellet! My thoughts are instead of going for a denser pattern with this #8 TSS, why not opt for a more open choke (say "Modified"), providing a similar pellet density at 45 yards to #6 lead, but the larger pattern making it easier to hit birds up close, as most should be. \:\)
