Hi guys, I am planning to buy some Centurion #8 shot for my coming classes, but I would like to know if Mossberg "likes" this brand of shots?

I recently bought Noble Sports from Italy, but turned out that my M590A1 has serious FTE with this particular brand, so I have to buy something else for my next training.

----
I just realized that the title was misleading and couldn't edit it, it should be Centurion birdshot from "a" mossberg instead...

I would buy a TON, take it out and shoot it and if your gun doesn't like it, sell it in the marketplace

Were you out at Gray Ops class yesterday? ;)

Centurion I believe is made by Noble as well so you might want to stay away from that as well.

Try these instead:

Stay away from the Winchester bulk as well. Lots of people in that class were having trouble with that as well. The Federal bulk pack stuff from WalMart was working well for those that had it (myself included).

Good luck!

Never tried it in my 590A1.
Mine ate the Winchester cheapies without flaw, along with Remington gun club loads, but my normal load is the Federal target load and haven't had single issue with it.
I have seen the Winchester loads FTE in a couple of my buddies shotguns.
Stick with Federal. Cheap and it works well.

Yes, that was me. :rolleyes:
I will probably pick up some RIO birdshot, so far my shotgun likes the brand.

Never used the birdshot, but I've put plenty of Centurian 00-buck through my 590 with no trouble.

So far my 590 hasn't found an ammo it doesn't like.
