    Baretta A300

    Got an email, Field & Stream has a special this week, $200 off the Baretta A300 in either wood or camo, making the cost $599. Always planned to pick up a shotgun I could shoot trap or skeet with, just havnt gotten around to it. Is the A300 a good gun? Is this a great deal that should be jumped on?

    I bought one early last year online for around $630 and thought it was a great deal for the wood version. I haven't kept up with their current market value but it seems like a great deal to me. I like mine a lot.

              I have one I bought about 4 years ago. It's a very nice affordable gun that reliable and well put together. I got the synthetic version and coming with shims and the ability to change the cant for us southpaws. It shoots quite nice and a big plus is the easy disassembly for cleaning. It's a piece of cake to do compared to its predecessor and many other semi auto scatterguns. I recommend it.

                  So I have to be in Melville this morning to pick up a trailer, so I am going to stop at Field and Stream. If they have the A300 in wood, it is meant to be, and Happy Birthday to me. Should they have it, what ammo should I buy? I honestly dont really evenb know the difference between skeet and trap, but whatever one people do, thats what I want to try with it. What should I have on hand mas a starter?

                    For trap you shouldn't use anything bigger than 00 Buckshot.


                    7 1/2 target loads.
                    I usually pick mine up at Yaphank; Suffolk Trap & Skeet when I go. Prices are fair and every time I buy some I smile and think of that Bitch legislator that repeatedly tries to shut them down and loses.

                          12 ga , 1-1/8oz, 2-3/4", # 8, or 7-1/2" to start. You will learn about other loads later.
                          Some semi 's will not cycle well with Light Loads : use 2-3/4 dram or 3 dram for best.
                          See you at Yaphank Nov 19 LIGC meet up ?

                            Just a heads up. Not sure if Beretta still does it with their shotguns but when you get it make sure you clean the chamber and bore real good. When I got mine the chamber, bore was coated in a sticky grease, preservative gak. I cleaned it pretty good I thought but some empties got stuck in the chamber after firing. Had to abort a trap session early and had to scrub it real good with a stiff chamber brush with a good amount of CLP. Since that initial good cleaning the 300 eats everything, from very light target loads to 1oz slugs perfectly. Enjoy.

                              My semi recommended full power loads for the first couple of hundred to break in and then you could use target loads.
