    I zero my shotguns and PCC carbines at 25, which puts them slightly high at 50, and on again around 75 (assuming some dot/barrel offset).
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I wish to store my shotgun "safely, ie nothing in the chamber, uncocked" but with shells preloaded in the tube. Then when needed
    I wish to start firing without manually putting one in the chamber first.

    Can I achieve this and what would be the procedure?

    You don't want to store the gun with the hammer down on a semi-auto as that complicates the process of loading the gun. You use hammer down with a pump gun because that leaves the action unlocked so you can just run the pump and get the gun into action. Dropping the hammer on an empty chamber with a semi-auto does precisely the opposite: It locks the action.

    Let me walk you through how I set up my 1301 for home defense:

    1. Ensure the weapon is unloaded by physically and visually inspecting the chamber and magazine.

    2. One at a time, load six shells of your preferred buckshot into the magazine of the shotgun.

    3. Once all six shells have been loaded into the magazine, press the shell release button at the base of the lifter to drop a shell on the lifter.

    By using this process you have set the shotgun up with an empty chamber, but all you need to do to charge the weapon is run the bolt and it is ready to shoot.

    Zero it for your primary application.

    I zero mine for my buckshot at 25 yards. I use slugs that give me the same POI as my buckshot loads (FFC buckshot and Federal's Tru-Ball slugs hit to the same point of impact in my guns) so I don't have to worry about it.

    If you find yourself facing a need to use slugs at greater distances, by all means set your optic up for that.

    I'm a big fan of having the gun set up for the most likely use case you are facing and then using practice and training to help you with those things that fall outside your expected envelope of using the gun.

    I've done 25 yards with federal truball. It basically ends up giving the same point of impact with 8 pellet flight control. Since I really only is slugs in classes, having good, consistent aiming with buckshot is good.

    New guy here, but mostly thanks to this thread I am a new owner of a 1301T Gen 2.
    Picked it up yesterday and tried it out a bit today. Ran almost 100 rounds of assorted bird, 00, and some 1oz slugs... zero malfunctions right out of the case. I did check for lube but everything looked wet so I just ran it... I am pleased with the results, to say the least.

    I do have a couple of small gripes, though... My 1301 came with that fully threaded extended breacher-adapter choke which just looks hideous and I have no use for. I'll call BUSA on Monday and see if they can take care of that for me.
    And the front sight is slightly crooked. Not a huge deal but I'll need to locate a tiny wrench to fix it... from previous posts it looks to be a 7/32" nut.

    I definitely want an RDS on this bad boy... the irons are fine but it's hard not to want a dot when your other firearms sport them. And it's the best night sight option going. I think the CROM with the RMR base is what I'll get but I may try the Holosun HS507C on it instead... I'm hearing good things about it and a circle dot reticle makes a lot of sense to me on a shotgun.

    I also definitely want an SGA stock but the Aridus Adapter is currently out of stock... I've no idea how long that wait might be.

    And of course I jumped in just in time for the Nordic +2 extensions to all be out of stock with no more expected. Sigh. I wonder what BUSA is going to do in the future for the 1301LE model? I know Briley makes a +2 for the 1301 but I don't see anyone using it and I suspect it sticks out past the barrel quite a bit which explains its lack of popularity.

    Thank you to everyone here for their contributions to this thread over the years... It's a metric shit-ton of posts to wade through but there are nuggets of gold all the way through.

    The “tag”next to “like this post”is a great way to save those individual nuggets.

    Quick follow up:
    Regarding the front sight: I was able to tap it straight with a vice, wood block, and hammer, just like drifting a dovetail sight. Quick and easy.

    Regarding the breacher choke: I called BUSA and they are mailing me the correct choke. Can't be upset with that response. The CS person said a batch of them were sent out incorrectly.

    25 percent off MSRP for all Beretta choke tubes today.

    https://www.berettausa.com/en-us/sto...l-choke-tubes/

    I don't own a Beretta that takes choke tubes, so I don't know how that compares to "street" prices, but it may help someone here.
