Regardless, it goes to show that you need to test your
    gun with your chosen duty/defensive ammo, not only for patterning, but for function (especially with a self-loader).
    Breakin would be my guess. I've personally fired about a case of 00 8 pellet low-recoil FFC through my 1301 shotguns with no issues...but I didn't shoot flight control through them until after I'd fired a couple of hundred rounds of birdshot through them. Given my penchant for practicing with heavy birdshot loads, the springs saw some significant breakin prior to patterning them with FFC.

    Definitely need to look into the ammunition (including how it was stored...shotgun shells can be more sensitive to temperature/humidity than metallic cartridges) and if that checks out contact Beretta and have them look at the guns.

    It would also be worthwhile to go burn a case of birdshot through each of them and then try shooting the low recoil buckshot again.

    I'll shoot you my address so you can send one before the holidays.

    Of course, I'll have to get rid of at least one of my seven total firearms...I mean, who needs more than a shotgun?

    (I learned that from Uncle Joe. Hey wait a minute...if you can't rack it, how're you supposed to scare the bad guys off?)[/QUOT

    A shell chambering in my M2 sounds pretty badass. Then again I've had suspects who were impressed by the sound of a pump gage racking, and suspects who were not impressed...

    Didn't Uncle Joe say to shoot thru the door....

    I traded the one I had for God Only Knows What, hence my recent M2 purchase....

    I finally got to shoot a few boxes of 8 pellet Flite Control through my 1301 and was extremely surprised and pleased at how mellow this load is. Felt like birdshot almost.

    I haven't been able to get my grubby hands on Federal ammo, but I was able to grab 30 rounds of Hornady's 8 pellet setup before word got out that the store had them.

    At 10 yards all 8 pellets are in the dome from my 1301. At 20, all in the chest box. It's convenient that my reticle acts as a range estimator as well - if the head fills the reticle, send it, if the B zone fills it, send it, slugs beyond that if possible (50 yards zero, hornady 1oz reduced recoil).

    I really, really want to try #1, and if the patterning is consistent with what I've seen in videos, I would do some things to some people that they may or may not enjoy for a case of it
    Nice people fall to the manipulator. The manipulator crumbles under the assertive. The assertive shrinks before the aggressive. The aggressive have no plan for the assaultive. The assaultive are unprepared for the homicidal.

    You may have said this earlier in the thread but I don't remember. What optics are you using on your 1301?
