Shotgun Question
Hope there are some shottie experts on here.

Recently got a Mossberg 500 pump action with pistol grips and my question is;

Am I able to load magnum 000 buck into this?

It's my first shotgun am I am not totally knowledgeable about them.

Any help is appreciated
Peace and Love,

Re: Shotgun Question
If your shell is the length of your chamber or shorter, you can fire any modern shell of the same gauge...

ie if the chamber is 3" 12ga, then you can fire any shell 12ga 3" or shorter...Shells are measured OPEN, so the length unfired is meaningless...It is the open hull that is measured for chamber length...All modern shells should be marked in US and Metric for length...

Re: Shotgun Question
Yes you can shoot buckshot in it, but with a pistol grip it will hurt your hand. Winchester makes a reduced recoil load of buckshot which would be perfect in your gun for home defense, it will do the job, without trying to tear your thumb off! Unless you just have to have the pistol grip, I would get e regular stock and put on it, much more user friendly that way. Contrary to popular belief you do have to "aim" a shotgun, and a shoulder stock makes that much easier. Hope you never need the thing, but smart to have a round just in case!

it's mainly for home protection, was using a .357 mag but it's a snub nose and hard enough to hit a target in the daytime.

this shottie takes 2 3/4 and 3", just wasn't sure about the 'magnum' aspect, but apparently it will do just fine :))

You're good to go...

Just remember that Buckshot wants a choke MOD or more open...Cylinder is better for SD...Tighter than MOD, and it 'blows' the pattern...Basically spreads the pattern (balls) faster than it would with the more open choke...

definitely made sure the choke was factory adjustable, my neighbor suggested that as well.

collection is looking pretty nice now:

Kimber 1911 .45acp
S&W .357 mag
S&W M&P 15
Moss 500
And an Moss .22lr for small game and target shooting


yep, surely on the TWL now haha

Re: Shotgun Question
Pistol grips on shotguns are for the movies, it greatly hinders the whole concept of using a shotgun.
The exception being the benelli M1014. But it's still got a butt stock.

The only exception would be rifled slugs i would think.

Huh?

I've fired rifled slugs from full to cylinder, and other than all of them sucking for accuracy past 40-50 yards, there is no difference that I saw...

It's not like you can blow the pattern of one projectile...

Re: Shotgun Question
If you hold that thing up in front of your face to aim it, and are using magnum loads you will get smacked very hard in the mouth! Ask me how I know. :) If you plan to shoot from the hip you will need a lot of practice to hit much with it except at very close range. You asked for an an expert in your OP, I would say I would qualify for that, I've been competing with shotguns, rifles, and handguns since 1985.

the mag rounds are for home defense only, def wouldn't hold it any closer than 8-10" away from face. More likely would be a full arm extension

I'll definitely consult u in the future if ant more issues arise, spankie hf

Re: Shotgun Question
you need this foregrip by butler creek


[link to www.atrgear.com]


hold it with your left hand straightened and "locked" by the front vertical part like a pistol grip
so the left straightened hand transfers recoil to your whole body weight

the right hand will thank you and you will be more effective with it
