NewM2 Posted November 3, 2020 Share Posted November 3, 2020 Hello! I am very new to shotguns so please forgive my basic questions! I just ordered a Benelli M2 Tactical and know I will need to break it in using a few hundred heavy load rounds. I also gathered anything below 1200fps or 3 dram/1-1/8 may be too light to cycle properly. So, two beginner questions: 1) How many drams/oz or fps is the ideal load to run for break in, and how many rounds? 2) I saw that the SD/HD round I thought I would use is unfortunately 1145fps. After break in, if that seems to cycle OK for many rounds, is it safe to conclude that it will run reliably? Or, better to use something else for home defense? Thanks so much!
