Congrats! My advice would be to get a variety of loads to determine what works best in your 930. I've heard it's been recommended to break the 930 in using loads equivalent to 3 3/4 drams (1300 to 1350 fps). I wasn't able to find any 3 3/4 drams equivalent target loads at my LGS so I used Winchester AA target loads (3 and 3 1/2 drams equiv.) for the break in and had no problems cycling them. The same with Winchester Super-X rifled slugs, Remington 00 buckshot and Federal Reduced recoil 00 buckshot, as expected.

I did, however, run into cycling issues with Winchester reduced recoil 00 buckshot and Remington Gun Club 8 shot target loads. Surprisingly, I had no issues with the Remington Gun Club 7 1/2 shot target loads.

Good luck, be safe and have fun.
