Affinity 20 TSS info needed
« on: June 01, 2019, 02:01:21 PM »
I’m swapping to a Affinity 20 gauge for next season which is only 288 days away. I’m looking for info on the Affinity 20 gauge and what you’re chokes using? What do your patterns look like at 20 & 40 yards?
While I intend to hand load in the future the first year with a 20 I may go store bought, so info on federal, apex, or any store bought tss is appreciated too. Are you having any cycling issues and if so what are they? I appreciate any and all the help I can get.
Always wondering wether or not to give a cluck

I am using a Sumtoy 570 on a 24" barrel.  At 20, with Apex 9s I get basically a volleyball sized pattern.  At 40 yds I have had anywhere between 250-300 in a 10" circle.  I haven't had any cycling problems with Apex or Longbeard XR shells.

i have the affinity 3 20 gauge. Be aware it will not cycle the federal loads, they are a shade too long. it will eject the one in the chamber but the second shot gets hung up and wont feed. i have had no such issues with apex or longbeards.

Get you an Indian Creek .562 and shoot the Apex 1 5/8 oz 9’s.  340 in the 10” @ 40yards.

I have the Affinity 3 in a 20 shooting 1 5/8oz.TSS handloads through a Carlson 575 non ported choke, I never counted the numbers but it throws one heck of a pattern.  PineyRooster, I back up my handloads with a Federal TSS and have never had one cycle poorly.
