SOCOMguy mag tube


Recommended Posts

Well, I did not realize how much difference there is in length in 2 3/4 in. ammo. I tried some Winchester Lead shot heavy game loads in #8 and got 7 in the mag. So I pulled out the old tape measure and the Wolf is 2 1/2, the Sellier & Bellot is 2 9/16, and the Winchester was 2 5/16.

I had the same problem when I got mine. I changed the mag tube spring with a brand new one and had the same problem. Certain types of 2 3/4 inch shells are made different than others are. You mentioned Buck shot, if you look at how S&B buckshot and Wolf are made they use a cap instead of a crimp to keep the shot in. That little bit makes all the difference when loading more and more rounds in the tube. Also try leaving your mag tube loaded to max capacity for a while to see if the spring will compress down more. When I first got my M4 I tried just about every type of buckshot I could find to see what patterned the best and what rounds I could fit more of in the tube. My preference is the Federal Flight Control Wad 9pellet 00 Buckshot, but I could only get 6 in the tube, so I opted for the Black box Hornady TAP 00 Buckshot.
