More shooting and tweaking to do for some better results, maybe. 40 yards, #9 TSS.

Buddy can I ask the ga? Looks sorta open especially with the tiny shot. I鈥檓 thinking you should try shooting a bigger target. You might not be centered
.410, as stated, it's a start. Next will be at a large sheet of paper to see exactly where the center of the pattern is and adjust from there. I have another choke on the way and some #9.5 TSS. We will see what things are next weekend after putting in some more bench time.

13/16 oz of #9 TSS, 295 pellets, 7/8 oz of #9.5 TSS 395 pellets. I would say that is a pretty significant increase. As I have stated, "it's a start".Wanted to see what it would do right out of the box and now the fun begins ;)

I debated for the last 2 months on buying this gun. I really like the looks and feel of it, but couldn't bring myself to buy a gun made in the ROC! I do my best to not give them any money, but the other options just didn't appeal to me. Cost was not the factor, I would have spent whatever if it was what I wanted. That being said, it really is a nice little shotgun. Workmanship, fit, finish and function are all good and it is a dream to shoot. I am too old to get beat up anymore and this fits the bill perfectly and will be a great gun to carry when I don't want to carry the flintlock. I had 2 new red dots here, an AT3 and a Sight mark, I put on the SM. The rail that comes on it is nice, it lets you still see your front bead as well as using the RD. I am anxious to see what this little gun is capable of, time will tell.

The difference from 9 to 9.5 in numbers will be significant.
I鈥檇 love to see straight 10s in a .410 load
Next year, someone will make them.
It's a great gun for sure. Feels like you're carrying a toy, shoots great and does the job of any 12ga just as good if not better. That being said, would it be okay if I borrowed your flintlock when you take the .410 out?
Which one? The 20 or 28 gauge?
Either/or... beggars can't be choosers.
Where are you located?

50 yards, dead bird, but could be improved on. How much time and money to fine tune things?????

I'm surprised the difference between 40 and 50.
Same here, I expected a little better. Then again, how much time and money is it worth trying to squeak out farther? I may play some more...............
It might be worth another shot at 50 with a clean barrel :unsure:
Ninja 9.5 out of stock at Rogers... :applause:
Just bought a box on GB, 2 left!
Did you try the 9's at 50?
Not yet.
I can't justify the price of tungsten.
I got a bunch of the old heavy 10 + 12 Guage loads when they used to come 25 in a box.
I can live with shooting less than 40 yards.
I get that! This is something different away from the flintlocks for awhile :)

I'm surprised the difference between 40 and 50.
It might also be worth putting the factory choke in for a test shot at 40 and 50?
The possibilities are endless!
