hpnewby Posted May 26, 2013 Share Posted May 26, 2013 3 things: 1) I've been duck hunting and shooting skeet my whole life with an 870 - this is my first auto loader. I shot 125 shells at skeet and hit more than I ever have in my life. The way this gun points and fits me feels like I picked it up from my tailor. 2) Slug POI was 12" above POA at 50 yards. This really surprised me. Sight alignment was with the front fiber buried behind the center bead. I used the same natural point for skeet that I've always used with any other vent rib gun and was obviously hitting fine. Next trip out I'll have to spend some time patterning and trying different chokes with slugs. I was using the factory improved all day. Anybody got any hints for this one? 3) Loading port is gonna need some work if Load 2 is ever gonna happen. Other than standard flaring for ease of access, the 'feed ramps' are gonna have to be opened quite a bit. The first shell gets hung up on the top lip (shell at too steep of an angle going in), and the second shell catches the bottom lip (shell not going all the way down into the port). I'm waiting on a few pictures, and hoping more people can share what they've done opening their ports. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
