24" barrel Nitro 1 5/8 ounce straight 9s TSS.

326 in 10 inch circle.

That's deadly! Picking up my M2 from the ffl tomorrow and then off to the gunsmith to have the receiver drilled and tapped. Sumtoy .562 should be here in a day or two. Hopefully I'll be able to test it next week.

20 ga M2, 26" crio barrel,  Sumtoy 562, Federal TSS 1.5oz 9s. 40 yds:  I'm getting 295-304 in the 10" ring. Very even pattern. Actually wish it wasn't quite as tight!

I'd be happy with those results. I may buy a more open choke to test after the season.

Tight don't have a pic but it wasn't too tight to make me miss on my first hunt this year a Osceola last Saturday and then followed it up with another on Sunday to tag out in Florida.

My first 20 gauge turkeys I think I will never shoot another 12 gauge I am hooked on the small bores!
