Pattern is worse
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:58:08 PM »
Super X3, Jelly Head and Mag Blends. Up until this year patterns have been crazy good. Clean or dirty barrel doesn't matter. 40 yds, getting less than 60 in a 10 inch circle.
Only other shells I had were some federal tss #7. They were worse than the mag blends.
Any thoughts?

are you shooting at something big enough to see most of your pattern?

Did your buffer leak from the shells?

Tried 2 different boxes of mag blends. Big enough target to see that I think it is a lot more open than before.

Temps about 60 today. Probably around the same last year.

Swap out that choke tube. perhaps try your factory xfull with the TSS 7s, or borrow different choke from a hunting buddy just to see what changes.

Is the choke tight? Barrel screwed down good?

Indian creek didn't get here. These are at 40. Not great. Rob Roberts .665 is better than jelly head.
Gonna take the 20 gauge and tss to Alabama this weekend. Its pattern puts these to shame.
Still don't know what's changed.

You need to shoot at 10 yards and readjust your sights or optic

I agree. It would be a good start. The last photo looks like the shot is a little high.

I agree. You can also miss a lot of pellets if you don’t see them. Shoot into a 24x36 paper.
