View Full Version : Finally found my Mossberg 930 SPX's Achilles Heel

My Mossberg has seen more 300 rounds of various loads through it without one hiccup of any kind.........until I loaded 25 count Winchester Super X 12 gauge, 2 3/4, 3 1/4 DR. EQ., 1 1/8 OZ., 4 lead shot.

Round after round no extraction, empty hulls stuck in the chamber.

Anyone else have trouble with these loads?

Other than these it shot other brands without fail (as usual). I even tested the plain cardboard box 00 Buck from OLIN, some people call it crap, I call it my new favorite load alongside the flight control 00 buck.

Is that the white box found at wally world also in the 100 rnd bulk packs? If so those are notorious for saiga 12 owners doing the same thing. Real low powered stuff.

It's sold in silver boxes, but I think it's the 6 shot or BB that's in the white box. It really felt under powered. So I'll stick with the full strength 2 3/4" & 3" 000, 00, & slug. I'd really like to try #2 though. I think I'm going to buy a box of every round size and find out what it will and won't digest.
