Shot my Remington 1100 TAC Master last weekend...

  1. I just wanted to follow up to my Remington 1100 TAC Master buildup on a 1967 Vintage Remington 1100...

    I took it to the range to function test it as well as check how it patterns with certain loads...

    I only tried two loads as that was all I had on hand, Remington Express Buckshot...SP12 00Buck 9 pellet...surprising to me was that in the first 20 shells I had many failures to go into battery failures...the Remington TAC Master doesn't seem to like Remington SP12 00Buck...

    Next...I thought I grabbed Federal Premium Low Recoil 00Buck but in fact I had the Maximum Hydra Shok HP Rifled Slug low recoil 1oz Slug - LE127 RS...I was surprised that this functioned perfectly in the TAC Master...

    I realize this wasn't a scientific test and that it doesn't mean other influences didn't effect performance...both of these worked perfectly in my 870 a few weeks back however...

    I also realized that the 1100 is one soft shooting 12GA even without a recoil pad beyond the stock plastic end cap provided by I learned a few things but I need to keep learning...just thought I'd share...

    My 1100 Tactical (T4) does not do well with light/low recoil loads. It does well otherwise.
  3. that's what shocked me that the low recoil did perfect while the full powered ones hiccuped...

    I just picked up an 1100 Tactical but have yet to take it to the range.... So I should avoid the reduced recoil 00 ?

    you should test your gun with a variety of ammo and then decide what to do next. It's easier with facts.
  6. in my did GREAT with low recoil and hiccuped on the FULL POWER mentioned above, try 'em all (that interest you) and see what works...

  7. ...but I wouldn't trade my 870 for it...:tongueout:...:supergrin:

    how long is the barrel on this build?...gas actuated shotguns can be fussy with different loads if the barrel is 1100 doesnt like to be shorter than 21" due to the gases going out the end of the barrel before full operation of the might sound funny but the light loads might have spent a little longer in the barrel and produced more push...
  9. I have a 22" Remington did the 1100 police shotguns with the 18" barrels function if what you say is so???...curious...I appreciate your response...
