Monte--No 3rd Shot!?!

Hello,

 

I shoot a 20 ga. Montefeltro, (bought new, used 4 seasons, upland, rarely in rain)usually using non-premium (Estate) high-base No. 6 loads.

 

Last season, my 3rd round wouldn't chamber, and sometimes my 2nd wouldn't either.

 

I've field-stripped and oiled where I thought I should several times. Does this mean my mag spring needs replacing?

 

And, is this best left to a 'smith because I read the thread about being careful, padded vise, headspacing, etc....

 

Thanks again.

Hi welcome to the forum.

 

What do you mean by not chambering exactly? Does the shell not come out of the magazine tube or is it getting stuck on the shell carrier or something else?
