What can shoot magnum or high brass? moss590, benelli m4, stoeger coach gun

I have heard that the Mossberg Persuader cant shoot magnum loads... Is this true? Will a stoeger coachgun shoot high brass and magnums? Which mossberg tactical models will?
Will a Benelli M4 shoot high brass and magnums?

Do 2.75 or 3 inch inheriently feed more reliably in a pump or semi auto?

If the gun is chambered for the 3" shell, it should feed and fire.

I've run thousands of 2.75" shells through 3" chambers and have never had an issue.

i think high brass is just a hotter load, have shot them in an old model 12 winchester 16 guage & in a 1300 winchester 12 guage, have not shot them in semi auto

The Brenneke load below at the far right has the highest brass of any 12ga. I've seen and my M4 ate it fine. Recoil wasn't that bad either. The federal truball has more felt recoil than the Brenneke.

Tactical Shotguns

Honestly, the only load that has ever choked my M4s is the cheap federal walmart multipurpose loads . . . and only when you are holding the gun with a less than firm grip and firing rapidly. The cheap buckshot from wally on the other hand cycles fine no matther how the gun is held.

My M4 has ran well with everything I've put in it with two exceptions. Non-lethal rounds, and 2" shells. Never had any issues with 2-3/4 or 3" of any kind.

They will all feed whatever shell lengths they are chambered for, high brass or low, magnum or not. You do know that "high brass" 2 3/4" 12 gauge shotshells are common, right? "High brass" or "magnum" has little to do with it. Those are simply premium, up-loaded shells within the chambering, though "magnum" is most commonly used in describing ammo in the 3" and above lengths. If your 12 gauge shotgun is chambered for 2 3/4" shells only, it will handle any 2 3/4" high or low brass shotshells. (The caveat to this is if it is an old gun and perhaps not appropriate for use with modern ammunition. Then you would want to have a qualified gunsmith check it for safety and function and you might want to restrict it's use to lower-pressure shotshells). But to continue, if your shotgun is chambered for 3" shells, it will handle 2 3/4" high or low brass and 3" high or low brass, standard or magnum, shotshells. And so on for a gun chambered for 3 1/2" 12 gauge shells, which will handle all three lengths. No modern gun manufacturer that I know of specifies any restrictions along the lines of ---2 3/4" or 3" shells, but not high brass or magnum---. It's possible, I guess, but would likely be some off-brand shotgun.

They are almost all chambered for both 2 3/4" and 3" shells, and that will be noted on the barrel. I'm not sure if the very earliest Mossbeg 500s were restricted to 2 /3/4" shells only, or not, but if so, you'd have to go back several decades.
