just an update....finally shot gun this weekend. What a shotgun. Shot 3 1/2 black clouds at 50 targets(they said heavy field loads to break in!!!LOL) and had no problems. Broke gun down and gave a thorough cleaning. Everything was kosher. Going again on monday but going to use 2 3/4 Fiocchi paper crusher target loads(max dram equiv). Hope all goes well. Anyone see any problems cycling those shells through this gun? I cant take 50 more black clouds. Dont even ask what my shoulder looks like...lol.
