What would you recommend for TSS shot out of a Benelli M2 20ga? The load is 1 5/8 #9 tss

You might want to call Trulock, but the F7CRP20565 Federal # 7 Turkey 0.060 choke would be where I'd look for 50 yard turkey patterns, if that is what you are trying to do.

.565 sounds like what I'm thinking about. I shoot a 555 now and it has a super tight core. I would like to even out my patterns in the 10 and 20" circles

I personally have not patterned any TSS loads recently, all are handloads now.

With small shot, aggressive constriction works. The Trulock Federal Heavyweight #7 choke is superb, for Federal Heavyweight, which is also a high density tungsten (17g/cc) load, and also heavy loads for a 20 . . . @ 1-1/2 oz.

With TSS 9, 1-5/8 oz., it should be ideal, or very close to ideal, for up to 60 yard work.

If I didn't handload I would definitely be shooting the Federal heavyweight they are the best 20ga turkey shells offered by any ammo company

Heavens, yes. Turkeys don't get any deader better.

My late father ended up celebrating his 84th birthday a few days early, with this gorgeous 26 lb. gobbler with 1-1/4 inch spurs.

All 20 gauge, all Trulock, all Federal Heavyweight #7.
