Been using it for the last 5-6 years before it was the rage. Shot Hevi13 before that. Mainly went with Hevi13 because it didnít knock my shoulder out of socket. Went to a 20ga and still shot Hevi13, then a buddy discovered TSS. We started loading our own when it cost us cheaper to load 10ea of TSS than a box of Hevi13. Then when it became the rage TSS went though the roof and was very difficult to find and actually get in. So we started looking around and discovered Apex ammoÖAmerican company and American made by vets. It patterned the BEST in my gun with my choke, so thatís what weíve gone with.
Iím not knocking anyone shooting lead, I shot it for years. I just want the best setup I can afford for everything I choose to do. I shoot a $350 Ruger American rifle with an $800 Leupold scope, lol. I will put it up against any gun out there as far as accuracy. I have certain bullets I shoot as well.
Same with trapping. Youíre not going to go buy the cheapest traps you can to catch a coyote just because itís held one beforeÖyouíre going to buy the best you can afford. Iíve caught them and cats in that little free trap MTP sends out as a free gift, but Iím not ordering a dozen just because I have, lol. Heck a .22 would kill a bear if itís close enough and you placed the bullet just right, but Iím not gonna use it to shoot one with.
And yes I have some friends that shoot that XR by Winchester I think and have some unreal patterns with it. In fact, when I can find a box of it in 20ga Iím going to order a couple to test out with my chokes and a few others I have. Save the TSS for out of state trips and use the XR here. Think my farthest bird this year, in multiple states, was a whopping 28 yards. So yeah, a dove load probably couldíve killed them, but Iím not taking any chances.
