  1. Useful information?? Like since 2003??? Not my fault you can't "search" or "comprehend"! All I said was it runs fine and you can't understand why you don't get an answer, then you were all reader and old guy. What makes you think people "owe" you an answer? Here is one now....since your two stock Benelli,s don't do this, shoot a stock Benelli. See? Problem solved!!! It is always best to relearn, that way you can figure out what folks already knew with only a 15 year lag. Get er done! By the way.....(thought I better spell that out for you), your "idea" of what happens under recoil is way off base, but after acting like a stiff member, you probably won't get much else help.
  2. Oh, I get it....old guys.......who know nothing about Benellies! Please let us know about how to fix this "problem" with your vast knowledge on this platform.....but remember to use large font so all us old guys can read it. BTW you are going about your "fix" in the wrong way, but you will figure out why after a while. I do so love when folks try to re invent stuff! Many times the reason there are no replies is NOT because it is such a "great question", it is because folks don't feel like taking the time to tell you the basics of how your gun works for the 150th time. I will leave this tiny tidbit here, as I now know I am engaged with a "Benelli expert", what you are assuming happens during a "static" event isn't even close to what happens under recoil. Further more, all the guys who build on Versa Max shotguns take that little inner spring out and throw it across the shop.....hmm! Guess they don't know nuffin either.😋
  3. Hmm, gun runs fine......and why is it so quiet????
  4. 100,000 to 150,000 or so if you start with a "good" spring. But...most of the factory springs aren't all that good!
  5. I don't like cheap 55 grainers at all!!!! But now the trashy 55 grainers really do it for me!
  6. If that was pointed at Dave, he is "special"! If that was pointed at me, I would say this particular R.O. was absolutely CLUELESS. The rest???? Well we are talking about the Rio guys 😘
  7. And I still laugh about the time they were going to D.Q. you!!! You can't fix stupid!!!!! Mean while I was told NO TRACER AMMO!!!! with Nozzler ballistic tips!!! Damn orange tips!!!! And at J.J.'s match no less! Gotta love Dave Mosier! You ought to have him back J.J. it was fun for everyone!
  8. It is not going fully into battery, or it is bouncing back out of battery when closing. Search on Benelli click. Lots of info on that I'm sure. But I would start by using a good quality grease on the cam pin and slot it rides in
  9. BTW Federal American Eagle IS NOT MAGNETIC!!!!!!! In it's 150 grain ball load. Duplicates M-80 ball!!! Winchester white box IS magnetic for those of you who care!
  10. I have had real good luck with Federal American Eagle 223 55 grain F.M.J. it has been very consistent lot to lot and runs around 1 M.O.A. out of most my 223 barrels. I have won more than a few matches with it, and have used it out past 300 with good effect. You can usually find it through target sports or ammo man for 300-350 per 1000
  11. Apple cider vinegar and hydrogen peroxide mixed 50/50 will dissolve lead quickly......BUT IT IS DANGEROUS FOR SKIN CONTACT after it has done it,s thing. Use nitrile gloves!!!!! Just mix it up and dump in the bore to just below the first set of gas ports and let foam away.
  12. I agree with Stealthy on the sparks and fire danger, and that is a perfectly good reason to ban them from your match.......but as the old proverb says...... don't pee down my leg and tell me it is rain! We have let people use anything they like at our local monthly match yes even M-855 and have done so since 2013. In that time I have had to re- plate only 2 of our flash targets due to cracking only. A couple have some divots, but at longer range they are just fine! And no we don't live in a fire danger setting like "Aridzona"
  13. Blah blah blah...... Steel this, jacketed that. Targets are consumable. Any match that thinks they are a one time purchase shouldn't be running matches. And who the hell cares if a flash target that is used at 2-3 hundred yards has a few craters?? BTW J.J. I have a lot of steel jacketed 308 military M-80 ball made by Winchester in the 60s and it hasn't even scuffed my personal MGM flash targets that I use for practice from 100 and out, out of a 22" M-14 barrel so I am calling B.S. on the 308 deal!!! As for M-193 being "over speed", that is the mil spec on 5.56x45mm out of a 20" barrel. You better just put a barrel length restriction on 5.56x45mm rifles that come to RM3G down to 16" and no longer.......My reloaded are in the same 3250 fps range out of a 20" barrel.... So you better ban reloads out of long barrels as well.......better yet, just tell competitors to use a "spec load" from whom ever you think won't hurt you precious steel. Maybe a 55 grain bullet at 2600 and NO 308 allowed???? Count me in!!!!!
