heavy4x4 Posted March 20, 2005 Share Posted March 20, 2005 I went yesterday and fired off 50 shots at sporting clays. I didn't shoot well, but that's not the point. I just wanted to fire my new gun. To break it in, I shot 12 3" Nitro Magnum shells with 1 7/8oz #6 shot. It kicked hard, but not too bad. Those clays broke like you wouldn't believe. After that, I shot 2 3/4", 1 1/8 oz, 3 dram eq, #7 1/2's. It cycled those flawlessly. Then, one of the guys handed me two Mini-max shells packed with 1 oz of shot...it cycled those fine. I'm impressed! I love the gun and it's versatility. The only issue I had with it the whole time I was out (mind you it was the first time shooting it, it was 35 degrees, windy, and spitting rain/snow pretty good) was that once, while firing the 3" mags early on, the action cycled so fast that the shell loading into the chamber from the magazine caught the end of the ejecting casing. It jammed. No other hiccups other than that, though. Happy hunting/shooting, -Steve Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
