Hi Folks

Newbie here to this forum.

Just picked up a TS12 about a week ago. What a masterpiece. Took it to the range and it exceeded my hopes for it.  I do have one question. I know the advertised capacity is 5 rds for each of the 3 tubes of 2.75 shells. For some reason I seem to only be able to get 4 rds in each tube with most types ammo I have tried. And yes the are 2.75 shells since it is stated in the manual that 3" will only fit 4 in each tube. Tried:

1. Winchester military 00 buck, od green in brown cardboard boxes.
2. Federal tactical 00 buck # LE13200
3. Winchester slugs # X12RS15
4. Federal slugs # F127RS

Only #4 was able to feed 5 rds in the tube. All others 4 only.

So here is my question. Can people here with experience with the TS12 recommend a 00 buck load that not only cycles the weapon well but you can feed 5 rds in each tube?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I would call IWI.  I had to send my TS12 back to IWI for a fix for this problem.  This should not be happening with Ammo under 2.4 " the SAAMI longest length for a 2 3/4 inch shotshell.  I have not received my TS12 back yet, but I was told IWI is working on a fix for this problem.

Please keep us updated on this as I am suffering from the same issue. If yours comes back loading 5 then I'll send mine in as well.
We need to hurry too before V2 comes out and we all get screwed!
Thanks for the info and update.

I was hoping not to have to send mine back but I think you are right I had better give IWI a call.


Thanks for the responses.

I received my TS12 back from IWI yesterday!  I had sent it back because it would not accept five rounds of Federal LE127 00  2 3/4 inch buckshot (2.39") in the magazine tube.  All three magazine tubes will now except five rounds of this ammo!  The magazine tubes are also so much easier to rotate.  Thanks IWI for fixing this problem.

Great news! I will call IWI ASAP to get mine scheduled in. Can you load 5 rounds of Winchester slugs or Herters? Those seen to be the most popular in my area.

Thanks for the  info once again.

I don't have any Winchester slugs, but should accept five rounds of any shell not over 2.4 inches.

I sent mine in as well. I hope it comes back with about a Nickles thickness of more room.

Haven't heard anything on mine yet either. Getting close to a month. If I haven't heard anything in a week or so I will call them.

I'm holding off on sending mine in until I hear what the fix is. Still enjoying mine too much.

I just talked to IWI. They said it was finished yesterday and they would be sending it back to me today.

I should have it back in 4-5 business days.

Hopefully it will be worth the wait.
