Took my new Rem870 18" barrel out this weekend into the forest up by Union Valley Reservior and im glad to report it performed very well blasting target and oranges!!. I used the following ammos:

Federal 2 3/4" #8, : 25 rounds
Remington 2 3/4" #7.5 : 25 rounds
Winchester 2 3/4" #7.5 WallyWorld bulk pack : 70-80 of 100 round pack
Remington 2 3/4" 00 buckshot: 5 rounds

There were 4 failures to eject the spent casing 3 of which happened while my 12 year old was shooting, 1 with me, but all i blame were caused by not racking the pump hard enough.

Sounds like a great time, can't wait to take my
new shotgun out as well.

Have to man handle those pumps!
