    DO USE action cleaner. Its great way to remove everything (dirt, oil, spent powder,....) from inside the reciever. good luck

    Increasing LOP?

    Thankyou for the quick response tucker301, but I need to adjust the length of pull not the drop. The shims supplied are used to adjust the drop. I have a SBE. Thankyou

    Kinda off topic, looking for advice

    good choice. myself and other family members have been hunting coyotes for years with .223 i shoot a remington 700 BDL VS (pre 1996) that my father bought new for my when I was 15. its a great gun. the price of coyote fur has been on a steady decrease but we used to make enough money to pay for all fuel and reloding supplies used through the winters hunting and even the occasional new rifle. excessive tearing is not as common in coyote fur as it is fox so they can take a lot more energy (in some cases even remain on their feet and keep running) a .22-250 is a great gun for coyote hunting but a .223 will do everything you require. its a blast! good luck

    Best choke for Duck/Goose Hunting

    I would not recomend Win Experts. Tear one open and look at the shot and it will give you nightmares for a week! In the five shells I tested there was not a single even remotely round pellet and the ones were closest to being round were all hollow. They looked a lot like welding slag. Plus there is no water resistance what so ever and the pellets have that real dark grey color steel gets and it wipes off on every thing. They also have that bad metal smell like metal factory has. I have examined many steel shot loads and these are by far they worst. Their only advantage is the price. My advice, DONT SKIMP ON THE SHELLS! We spend so much money (M2=$1300) on every thing else yet we skimp on the most important. Use only premium steel (Fed. Ultra Shock or Win Supream) or a good non-tox load. The guys layed some good advice for choke tubes. Patternmasterns hold great long range patterns for geese but are a little tight for ducks of decoys and the Terror really seems to be getting popular. I tried a Rhino/Haydel DPX tube and was not impressed and I have had the best patterns with Brileys extended modles. For Ducks and with steel use IC, LM, and M depeding on what range they want to work. Geese and steel Ill use a M or IM depending on range. Geese and Hevi-shot I use LM.

    Factory Chokes for large steel shot.

    by extended i mean tubes that extend beyond the muzzle of the barrel. when it comes to aftermarket tubes, i am a big fan of briley's extended tubes. only the new benellis (SBEII, M2, ect) have the new crio systems and yes they have been lengthened inside the muzzle so it is a similar consept. there are also exteneded tubes for the crio systems which, in theory, would produce even better patterns with steel but yet to see any tests. hope it helps

    Factory Chokes for large steel shot.

    Modified (M) But I have found that Extended tubes provide fuller paterns (LM), (M) and (IM).

    Cycling problems...

    Dont use use rem oil on your benellis. Dry-based lubricants can gum and slow the actions. I know this from experience. Hopes WeatherGuard Oil (in the BLACK bottle) works great in cold temps and the Hopes 9 (in the ORANGE bottle) works good in all conditions. Do you use an action cleaner or brake cleaner when you degrease the action? If you dont then use it and brush (or q-tip) to scrub the rails that the bolt rides in. Also, when degreasing the action make sure to degrease and lighty oil the inside of the magazine and its spring. Make sure your magazine spring is still true to its normal length as well. Slow shells out of the magazine can cause cycling problems as well. You may want to replace your plastic follower and iron spring with a SMR stainless spring and aluminum follower (about $25). I'm not sure if its your problem but it might help. [ 11-16-2004, 07:09 PM: Message edited by: tj ]
