I've tried various combinations of powder,shot and wads. BPI wads mainly, #5 & 6 shot . T7 & Pyro RS Checking pattern at 40. Using TK2000 with the full choke.
I've read on the net from various users their " load combos & awesome patterns " but have never seen any target proof. I get a bunch of large holes the size anywhere from a softball to a cantaloupe in my attempts. I either drop powder down or increase shot. Still not great. Anyone with a success? And I know of course what might work in one smooth tube might not work in another.

I use BPI turkey ranger wads for 2 Oz of shot.slit I use 100 grains loose 777 1/2" fiber wad over the powder Turkey ranger wad 1 7/8 Oz of #5 shot Over shot card Although the BPI wads are for 2 Oz of shot, I get better patterns with 1 7/8 Oz. I weigh the shot charge on a little kitchen scale. My patterns really improved when I started using the over powder wad. Hope this helps
