1. Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

    I plan to send my Marocchi-mfg. 512 12 gauge imp/12 gauge rifled combo barrel to Briley to be fitted with their thinwall Steel Shot/Tungsten/All Shot tubes. I plan on using 3-inch TSS (Tungsten Super Shot) shells with an Extra Full choke and sabot slugs for an integrated whitetail deer/turkey hunting solution in southwest Michigan. Is there anything about the steel, proofing, or construction of the Marocchi-mfg 512 barrels that prevents me from using TSS in them? Thank you!

    The TSS loads are made with shot cups that are "supposed" to protect any barrel steel & rated as safe to use in any shotgun. However, all Tungsten matrix shot (because of it's high density) has a tendency for blown or erratic patterns if "over choked". An Extra Full choke may not be your best choice. Some tests have shown that a modified choke can give denser more uniform patterns than the full chokes. Always best to "test" things in the real world. Just curious, but what's wrong with just using regular lead shot? I doubt the turkey will notice.
