put a few nitro 3" magnums through my mossberg 500 today, pretty strong load
keep a few boxes of 3''magnum 00 buck on hand for my rem 870
i use them for turkey hunting but they are a bit tough to be letting my wife defend herself with. i actually shot a round of clays with 3" #4 shotshells back when i was younger. not sure i could do that today without hurting quite a bit.
When I feel masochistic I'll go to the range and shoot 50 of these bad boys.
12 Gauge Remington Buckhammer, 3", 1-3/8 oz. Lead Slugs.
I was amazed with that amount of flash I got out of the barrel when I switched, makes the 7 1/2 shot federals feel real light after, think the mossberg 500 can handle firing these 3" magnums???
They are fun to shoot. Probably not the best for HD however. I like the Winchester Super X variety.
I've used 3 inch sabot slugs to take a couple of whitetail deer with my 590, and I use 3 inch turkey loads for turkey hunting with an external Xtra full choke tube.
Only on Canadian Geese hunts.
Other than the price (after rebates) I have NO IDEA as to why I bought an 870 SuperMag!!!!
I mean, it was less than $150.00 (after all rebates), but, I have no intention of shooting 3-1/2" magnums.
Oh, and it's never been taken out of the box!
My 1100 Magnum w/ the old 3" (1-7/8 oz.) #2 copperplate loads weren't too bad.
i keep thinking the same thing. my mossberg 535 is a 3.5" and i was told it would interchange barrels with the 500 but that was wrong. oh well. i figure if its built for 3.5" shells, it should handle a steady diet of 3"
