Sawblade Posted February 14, 2013 Share Posted February 14, 2013 So I got a new M2 20 gauge and shot it last week for the first time. Never had a FTE but had many instances where the shell failed to chamber. As the shell was entering the chamber, the leading edge of the shell rim is getting caught on the sharp edge of the chamber and actually bending the shell rim outward. Obviously, the shell won't complete the chambering process after that. There is also evidence that the shell hull is being gouged by the same sharp chamber edge. It seems as though something isn't lining up correctly and the shell isn't being forced straight into the chamber. I own other Benelli's and realize that there is a break in period. However, this doesn't seem to me like something that will work itself out. Have any of you had this issue? If so, what was the cause and fix? If it makes any difference, I was shooting Federal field loads and it happened at least 15 times in the first 3 boxes of shells. Thanks for any input.
