Love it. Do check out good loading videos from the side saddle (like Magpul Dynamic Shotgun) and practice those loads. You may want to insert less of the shell into the saddle to get more grip them. Also, regular shotshells probably load more efficiently into the tube when you pull them downward out of the saddle, and feed a slug directly into the chamber by pulling them out upward, over the receiver, and into the chamber. So, shotshells face up, slugs down (the first two or three on the saddle)

Sounds more complicated than it really is, but you have to practice this, now and then.
